- Dr. Fauci said it’s a “resounding no,” that Covid-19 vaccines cause reproductive issues.
- He was responding to a viral series of tweets by Nicki Minaj, where she said she was unvaccinated.
- Minaj’s reason allegedly had to do with a cousin’s friend and a hard-to-believe tale.
Dr. Anthony Fauci responded to international star Nicki Minaj’s vaccine skepticism during a CNN interview on Tuesday, saying that it was a “resounding no” that vaccines cause reproductive issues.
In the interview, Jake Tapper references a series of tweets on September 13 by Nicki Minaj, explaining her absence from the Met Gala. In a now-viral tweet, the artist admitted that she has not taken a vaccine yet for Covid-19 because she claimed a cousin’s friend in Trinidad took the shot and was left with swollen testicles and a ruined marriage.
“Dr. Fauci, is there any evidence that the Pfizer, the Moderna, or the J&J vaccines cause any reproductive issues in men or women?” Jake Tapper asked Fauci.
“The answer to that, Jake, is a resounding no” — asked about Nicki Minaj’s tweet regarding her cousin’s friend’s balls, Dr. Fauci says there’s no evidence the Covid vaccines cause reproductive issues.
