Met Gala 2021 has kicked off on September 13, 2021, and it is called the most prestigious fashion-forward event.
The event includes all the celebrities of the fashion, music and art industry. This is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Billie Eilish, Frank Ocean, Grimes, Lil Nas X and many others have grabbed our attention with their fashion statement.
But Nicki Minaj was not one to grace the beige carpet this year as she decided to skip the event. She revealed the reason be the vaccine mandate. The rapper had posted a lengthy tweet as she shared her problem with her fans. She posted a tweet where she claimed that one of her family members got impotent after the vaccine.
Nicki was then schooled by social media users as they told her she was wrong. This comes after a day of her skipping the MTV VMAs 2021 as well. The rapper had a solid reason to back out from attending this year’s Met Gala. She clarified that she will be getting vaccinated after she has done enough research as she added that it won’t be for the Met.
The rapper wrote, “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one.”
Twitter Users School Nicki Minaj
Nicki then went on to share the story of her family member getting impotent. She wrote, “My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied.”
A fan tweeted that she should definitely get vaccinated and Nicki responded. She said she knows as a lot of countries will not let people work without the vaccine. The rapper added, I’d def recommend they get the vaccine. They have to feed their families. I’m sure I’ll b vaccinated as well cuz I have to go on tour, etc.”
Users flooded Nicki with tweets as they urged her to get the shot. A user said, “Your own research? Do you have a team of scientists running clinical trials out of a spare bedroom?” Another user said that they love her but she is wrong. They went on to add that the vaccine is safe and reduces the chances of hospitalization and serious illness.
