Nicki Minaj got put in Twitter jail for lying & promoting vaccine disinformation

Nicki Minaj Hosts Church on Sundays Grammy weekend party at Argyle in Hollywood

I’m sorry, but what in the world is Nicki Minaj doing? I thought this whole mess was over Monday night, when even the Barbz turned on her for spreading vaccine disinformation and propagating a story about vaccine-induced swoleballs in her cousin’s friend. On Monday night, Nicki tweeted out that she was Covid-positive and that’s why she skipped the VMAs, then she admitted that she was unvaccinated and she wouldn’t get the vaccine until she did her own research (sideeye), and then she told the dumb story about her cousin’s friend’s vaccine-induced swoleballs. Everyone made fun of her and instead of just apologizing for getting it wrong, Nicki has decided to double-down on all of her bad takes and misinformation.

At some point during Nicki’s flat-out Twitter tantrum, she tweeted out a video from Tucker Carlson, where Tucker was defending her right to spread vaxx misinformation, basically. Even the Barbz know that Carlson is a white supremacist, so they were like “WTF is wrong with you??” And she still didn’t back down. But the biggest part of Minaj’s mess was when she claimed the White House had contacted her and offered her a meeting on vaccines. The White House came out and denied Minaj’s lie and they said the offer was for her to speak on the phone to one of their public health officials, in what I can only imagine would have been the public health official lecturing Nicki to stop using her platform to spread misinformation about vaccines.

And after all that, Nicki claimed she was in Twitter jail, which I believe. She was actively promoting lies about vaccines, and Twitter and Instagram have gotten better about shutting down those people. Minaj then claimed she would not use Twitter anymore. I looked at her Twitter feed this morning and I didn’t even see any notices or labels on her tweets, but I wasn’t looking that hard. And it’s possible that she is in Twitter jail, and if so, oh well. I just saw that Minaj went on Instagram last night and whined about cancel culture and saying that a “mob” was attacking her. Bitch, you lied!! You used your platform to spread misinformation about vaccines! A social media mob “attacked” you for a REASON.

Here’s Trinidad and Tobago’s Health Minister saying flat-out that no one in the country has vaccine-induced swoleballs. Ouch.

    This woman should have been canceled long ago, we saw who she was when she stood by her pedophile rapist brother’s side.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes, @ MY3CENTS! She is a habitual liar and a woman who openly defends sexual predators, which is a violent crime. The bit about the WH wanting to speak with her sounds like she has deluded herself into thinking that she’s all that. Add to the fact that she is publicly applauding that Carlson is her cheerleader is so disgusting and disturbing. Hey Minaj, why don’t you see if Carlson would have you and your crew over for dinner then? See how supportive he is for you behind closed doors. Please, go away!! Forever! Poor T and T for chasing down her lies. They should sue her for claiming a false medical reaction to the vaccination and they could recoup their funds, as they have such a small GDP.

      • Tanguerita says:

        and the gall of her to call Joy-Ann Reid Tomiana only to retwit a segment with Tucker fu…g Carlson defending her. She is pure trash.

    • Beenie says:

      Agree x1000. She is a garbage person and has been for years. This is just the latest example of how she is hateful, misinformed, arrogant trash.

      I feel really uncomfortable saying or writing these kinds of things about anyone because I really like to give people the benefit of the doubt and also try never to name call… but honestly, I’m making an exception for Nicki. I think she’s the epitome of a person who should never be given a platform of any size. I don’t want 1 person listening to her spew garbage, let alone millions. I hope all the platforms kick her off. She’s toxic and tiring.

      • observer says:

        i went on twitter for 2 seconds earlier and the narrative from nicki stans(?) now is that she’s being “silenced” for speaking her truth while being black.

    • Robyn says:

      Yep. She’s been showing us who she really is for a long time.

    • Ry says:

      She’s a menace.
      She’ll start a forest fire by flicking a cigarette then get shocked at the response and whine.
      These are the bitches that always get burned but are too stupid to know it.
      Ignorance isn’t always contagious. Good for the people who aren’t buying her brand of bullshit. She lost me at protecting the rapist.

  2. Tanguerita says:

    when will people finally understand that she is a massive ignorant obnoxious pos?She should have been cancelled ages ago.

  3. Snuffles says:

    She’s making a damn fool of herself. She might be having a break down. I read her husband might be going back to jail for violating parole and/or refusing to register as a sex offender. And his victim is suing them for harassment because they tried to force her to recant her accusation.

    Did you guys watch Colbert’s spoof!?

  4. BlueSky says:

    NM has been up her own ass for the past decade. She is so used to everyone kissing her ass that when faced with actual consequences she plays victim. She’s a narcissist and a POS. She is trying to distract from all these legal issues going on with her and her POS husband.

  5. Hirut says:

    Twitter denied she was in Twitter jail. Also the White House denied they invited her.’apparently they only offered a phone call with a doctor for her to ask questions. And Trinidad and Tobago Health minister denied about any swollen balls anywhere in Trinidad or Tobago. That is after she got into a war of words with Bojo and Professor Whitby. The T&T government health minister actually had to check her false info for an entire day. She is the trashiest trash around.

    • Rice says:

      As a Trini, I’m so ashamed that she shares my heritage and forced our Minister of Health to go on TV to debunk her shit. As JW (a local TV announcer) said, If the man has a flat tire, there’s herbs and punches (sea moss and other drinks) to get back d’ vibes. You don’t blast that shit all over the web as evidence of your shitty, uneducated ways. Also, Nicki is a polarising person here in TnT. She says shady stuff about our land when she’s in the US and then acts like she loves TnT so much when she’s here. She can kiss my ass.

  6. tanesha86 says:

    She lied about Twitter suspending her account, a Twitter spokesperson spoke with multiple media outlets and debunked her claim

    I feel like a lot of anti-VAXers need to learn the meaning behind the statement correlation without causation.

    Among many other things.

  8. Amy Bee says:

    What I’ve learned about this whole thing is Nicki is a compulsive liar and probably is a MAGA.

    • ME says:

      She should have married Kanye instead. What a couple that would have been.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Tbh, it won’t shock me at all at this point if within the next year or so, she actually does go MAGA/republican. She seems like the type who would choose owning every lib who ever criticized her by becoming a dangerous enemy, over admitting how wrong and awful she’s been and trying to be a better person. Going conservative would be the easiest and flashiest way for her to double down on all the toxic things she’s done. It would get her attention, and conservatives would swallow enough of their racism to embrace a new token. They’d make her out to be their ‘Repentant Bad Girl’ if people brought up her hypocrisy. The right definitely has women and LGBT people who chose that path. It’s disturbing.

  9. MellyMel says:

    She was never in Twitter jail. She’s making a huge fuss to distract from her husband’s legal issues. Also she’s an idiot who loves attention, so…

  10. mellie says:

    How embarrassing. I really hate liars, just flat out liars. She should be ashamed of herself.

    • Shag says:

      I have soooo many yoga teacher friends who feel too healthy for the vax.
      Yet they’ve also been into the ayawaska and or festival drugs. Plus many into multiple sexual partners. Cause freedom namaste
      This faction spew the same niki Minaj anti vax crap.
      Wish EVERYONE would get fact checked in national tv. Especially if they interact and have ANY social media platforms
      We hear the same lies daily.

  11. Miranda says:

    Remember that one compulsive liar kid we all grew up with? The kid whose dad was a Navy SEAL/secret agent and whose mom was an astronaut, and who is TOTALLY going to dinner at the White House this weekend, you guys. Because his/her dad is like, BFFs with the POTUS. Nicki Minaj is a super toxic version of that kid with a fake ass, deep pockets, and a platform to spread her bullshit far and wide. God help us.

    • MerlinsMom1018 says:

      @Miranda
      I actually knew someone like that when I was in school (way back in the 70′s)
      Nobody took her seriously and she was even called out numerous times for it.
      Lost track of her after graduation so…

  12. Lea says:

    The worst thing of it all is that this was probably an attention-seeking stunt to divert from the real reason why she can’t attend any of these big events: her husband facing jail for failing to register as sex offender.

  13. Bryn says:

    Clearly she can’t handle being wrong at all. I know people like her, they will fight to the death to prove they weren’t wrong.

  14. grabbyhands says:

    Imagine telling on yourself like this – this many obviously, easily discreditable, very public lies just to distract people from thinking about how she and her rapist husband are being sued for threatening and intimidating his victim (pretty sure the reason she didn’t go to the Met was so no one could serve her with papers).

    I mean, obviously there are no lengths she will not go to to defend her trash decisions, but imagine how far down the slime hole you are when you’re retweeting a fascist like Tucker Carlson? Like, how does she still have stans???

    Still, there are a few gems – even the aforementioned demon spawn went on Fox and was like, gee I might have been wrong after the Trinidad/Tobago was like, “bish who?? We don’t know you or this mysterious cousin and his elephant balls, which isn’t even something that happens and we are poorer for having had to go on national television to tell people this” and then the White House discrediting her “invitation@ to the White House AND THEN even Twitter calling her out for lying.

    But she’s so committed to her bizarro world, she has the gall to say “you really think I would lie about this??” And it’s like, well duh.

  15. girl_ninja says:

    What a sad, hateful and disgusting woman.

  16. Christine says:

    She’s trying to distract from the fact her husband is going back to jail and frankly, she should be headed there as well.

  17. MadamNoir24 says:

    It’s so obvious she’s doing all of this to distract people from the fact that her husband pleaded guilty to not registering as a sex offender and she’s also trying to distract people from the fact that she and her husband is being sued by his victim for harassment, bullying, and intimidation. Nicki is trash and so is her husband. The nerve of her to call people dummies when she’s the dummy that married a rapist, telling people to do research but she did no research on her husband. I can’t stand her!

  18. BnlurNforever says:

    This person needs a spokes person but apparently no one wants the job, or she won’t listen to them. Amateur Psychology time, she has no control in her personal life and is trying to control everything else around her including a virus, information about said virus and how everyone reacts to her. She is toxic obviously and has shown her values are not what is in anyway decent by any standards. I feel bad for people who were/are fans of hers and has to watch her toxicity on full display.

  19. Laura says:

    I hope she gets put in regular jail for trying to intimidate her husband’s rape victim

  20. psl says:

    The fact that Fauci had to even address this…..makes me livid. NICKI MINAJ IS A VILE WOMAN.

    She is probably trying to take the attention off her sex offender husband…..

  21. Marigold says:

    I cannot stand her.

  22. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Is she completely positive her friend’s swollen pelotas aren’t a symptom of an STD? Let’s discuss gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis, which can cause orchitis (swollen pelotas) in sexually active men, usually those ages 19 to 35. But only after you get the COVID vaccine.

  23. Kim says:

    She also quote tweeted a fan trying to explain TC is a white supremacist, calling her fan brain dead and other things, causing her millions of fans to go after this one fan. Who then had to apologize to try and lessen the harassment they got and I’m sure they were hurt being attacked by the person they are (hopefully not any more) a fan of.

  24. MangoAngelesque says:

    When someone tells you who they are, believe them.

  25. Susan says:

    Ok, call me Dr Skeptismo, but guess who is in the news and is getting a lot of “attention”? Yep, NM. I think some people just like the attention, positive or negative.

  26. Grant says:

    She is trash, trash, TRASH. I’ll never listen to her again.

  27. Margo says:

    Way to torpedo your career, Ms. Minaj.

  28. Well Wisher says:

    The View had the best response. I am so over her since she recorded a song using Tracy Chapman’s “Give me one reason to stay here” despite Tracy’s refusal to grant permission. The matter was settled in court when she was ordered to never release the track.
    She went on a rant, conflating her popularity with Tracy’s art, implying Tracy needed her.
    That was bad enough until someone? called Tracy a monkey on Twitter. I broke my own rule and respond by pointing out the obvious.
    She then went after Michael B Jordan, I hope he kept the name on his product since Trinidad does not own that word, other islands in the Caribbean use it. Even if Trinidad had originated that word, she does not own it nor the entire culture
    32% of 1.3 million Trinidadians are vaccinated, I wish she would……
    Maybe having a break down or more public with her behaviour.

  29. Amando says:

    She will never admit she’s wrong. It is okay to ask questions, but she does not need to use her platform to ask them. She could have easily picked up a phone and asked a doctor these questions. She made herself look stupid and won’t back off of it.

  30. Rea says:

    Ah Nikk!!! I follow her on SS and this all started with her telling people which vaccine was better. Then she went on a rant about how people should get vaccinated but she wanted more information before she did. People took that as–Oh she is not going to be vaccinated. Which prompted Niki to state all these facts and let to many now deleted twitter messages. Oh I forgot to add we are all trying to silence a woman of color per Nikki. Ya’ll I guess that make us bullies in her book.

  31. Mimi says:

    This woman has gone from being one of my fav artists to one of my most disliked artists so fast

  32. Rhoda Cowboy says:

    No…it’s not who we are but it is who we need to become when a dumb ass like her offers medical advice and other dumb asses take it as gospel.

  33. Persephone says:

    Whose son are you sorry for? Nicky Minaj’s son? If so, I would be too.

  34. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    I’m not sure if your comment is serious or not but that clip of Monique earnestly asking the contests of Charm School, “Is this who we ARE??” just popped into my head. Hahaha.

  35. Amando says:

    She should be asking those questions to a doctor, not to her Twitter fanbase.

  36. why says:

    but she didnt ask questions. she was making claims. a false at that

  37. Tanguerita says:

    I hope you don’t have any kids. You definitely shouldn’t
