Is Nicki Minaj headed to Washington? Per Minaj’s viral controversy surrounding erroneous tweets made by her concerning skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccine, The White House has officially invited Minaj to a conversation with a top health official to discuss her concerns. Despite Nicki Minaj’s claim that she was invited to physically go to the White House for the meeting, a White House official has debunked the claim and expressed that Minaj was invited to a phone conversation with a top health official.
“The White House has invited me & I think it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, I’m going. I’ll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde so they know I mean business.” Minaj tweeted Wednesday afternoon.
A White House official followed up to clarify the details of the meeting by stating, “As we have with others, we offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she has about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.” A White House official formally stated Wednesday night.
Subsequent to the White House’s official statement regarding the matter, Nicki Minaj was adamant about her initial claim that she was indeed invited to visit the White House for the meeting. “Do y’all think I would go to the internet and f*cking lie about being invited to the f*cking white house?” She rubutted on her instagram live.
Furthermore, Minaj shared to her twitter account a few days ago to assert that her cousin’s friend in Trinidad & Tobago had “became impotent” after receiving the vaccine. Since the assertion, the health minister of Trinidad & Tobago looked into the matter and rejected the claim to be false per the country’s health records.
White House officials are being swift in lending sound medical guidance in regard to the vaccine as Minaj has an incredibly large following and fan base. Officials understand the influence of such renowned celebrities and attempt to be proactive so that misinformation isn’t widely spread and potentially cause a detriment in the progression of controlling the virus.
