The White House offered to arrange a phone call between Nicki Minaj and one of their doctors, reported several American media, after the rapper claimed that a friend of her cousin became impotent after being vaccinated for coronavirus.
Minaj said Wednesday that she had been invited to the White House following her viral tweets about an anonymous acquaintance of hers in her native Trinidad and Tobago, and said she accepted the invitation.
But a White House official told reporters that Minaj was only offered a call for educational purposes.
“As we did with other people, we offered to Nicki Minaj a phone conversation with one of our doctors to answer her questions about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine,” the official said.
The Grammy-nominated rapper sparked a media firestorm Monday when she said she declined to attend the Met Gala, which drew numerous stars in New York this week, because attendees were required to be vaccinated. Minaj said she would only get vaccinated once “enough research had been done”.
According to her, a friend of her cousin in Trinidad and Tobago suffered an inflammation of the testicles after being immunized, which was refuted by the Minister of Health of that Caribbean country.
“One of the reasons we did not respond in real time to the lady Minaj is that we had to verify that what she said was true or false,” said Minister Terrence Deyalsingh at a press conference.
“Unfortunately, yesterday we lost a lot of time due to that false complaint”, he said.
British and American health authorities also rejected the artist’s claims.
Experts said there is no evidence that vaccines affect fertility or male genitalia.
