Nicki Minaj has been branded an “idiot” by Richard Madeley after the rapper said that she would not let her son get a vaccination.
Richard Madeley has come out in response to Nicki Minaj’s remarks on the Covid-19 vaccine, calling her a “idiot.”
Nicki got famous when she claimed that one of her cousin’s acquaintances in Trinidad was dumped by his wife after his testicles swelled as a result of the Covid-19 vaccination.
The rapper made the outrageous claim while explaining that she would not be attending the Met Gala because guests were obliged to get vaccinated.
‘They want you to be vaccinated for the Met,’ the 38-year-old tweeted. It won’t be for the Met if I get vaccinated. It’ll be when I’m satisfied that I’ve done enough research. I’m currently working on it. In the meanwhile, be safe, my loves. Wear the mask with the two cords around your head and face. ‘Not that sloppy one,’ says the narrator.
‘My cousin in Trinidad won’t receive the vaccination since his buddy had it and became impotent,’ she said. His testicles swelled up. His buddy was set to marry in a few weeks, but the girl decided to call off the wedding. So just pray about it and make sure you’re comfortable with your choice rather than feeling pressured.’
There is no proof that the Covid-19 vaccinations cause impotence, and Nicki’s allegations have been rejected by physicians.
My relative in Trinidad would not get the vaccination since his buddy received it and became impotent as a result. His testicles swelled up. His buddy was set to marry in a few weeks, but the girl decided to call off the wedding. So just pray about it and make sure you’re comfortable with your choice rather than being pushed into it.

Richard slammed the rapper on GMB, saying, “What a fool!”
‘She has no idea that her ludicrous post is really causing genuine harm,’ he said.
Richard and his co-host Susanna Reid aren’t the only ones who have commented on Nicki’s tweets, as Boris Johnson was questioned about them at a press conference.
Before Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty disputed her allegations and said she should be embarrassed, the Prime Minister acknowledged, ‘I’m not as acquainted with the works of Nicki Minaj as I maybe should be.’
To add to the strangeness, Nicki replied to Mr Johnson with a weird voice note.
‘Yes, hello Prime Minister Boris, it is Nicki Minaj,’ she can be heard saying in the video. I was just phoning to express my admiration for your performance on the news this morning.
‘I’m really British,’ she adds. I was born there, and I attended university and Oxford there. Margaret Thatcher was my classmate in high school, and she told me a lot of good things about you.
‘Because you don’t know much about me, I’d want to give you my job portfolio.’
‘In the United States, I am a huge, huge celebrity.’
Professor Whitty slammed Nicki’s statements, calling them “obviously intended to frighten.”

‘My own strong advice, if I may, to journalists present and absent is that repeating it in public just lends it credibility, which they don’t need,’ he added. ‘They are, without a doubt, false.’
‘If you think about where we are now, the vast majority of people are being vaccinated, therefore the vast majority of people are disregarding these falsehoods,’ he said. ‘And, when you speak about folks in their 50s, 60s, and 70s, you’re talking about over 90% of individuals being vaccinated, and only a small percentage of people are openly anti-vax.’
