Tucker Urges Nicki Minaj’s Cousin’s Friend to Call Him About Swollen Testicles
Fox News host Tucker Carlson capped off a second straight night of coverage of Nicki Minaj’s wild claim that the coronavirus vaccine causes swollen testicles by urging the rap superstar’s cousin’s friend to contact him for an interview.
In case you are somehow still unaware, Minaj faced harsh public backlash on Monday when she admitted on Twitter that she hadn’t yet gotten vaccinated, saying that she was doing her own “research” into the shot. At the same time, she shared an anecdote that she suggested had fed into her vaccine hesitancy.
“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent,” the 38-year-old rapper tweeted. “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.”
