Following the rapper's false claims that the shot can make men impotent and that she was hesitant to receive that vaccine, Minaj tweeted on Wednesday, “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. I’ll ask questions on behalf of the ppl who have been made fun of for simply being human."
However, White House Officials claim that was not the exact offer they gave to the "Super Bass" singer'. A spokesperson gave a statement to Fox News saying, “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."
Minaj then hit back as she said that she was personally invited, but that she was the one who said no to an in person trip to Washington. “Do y’all think that I would go on the Internet and lie about being invited to the … White House?" the new mom posted to her now deleted Instagram according to Newsweek.
The Grammy Award winner alleged that officials said, “We’d like to offer Nicki an invitation to come to the White House to speak with two people… the two names… um, what is that man’s name… Dr. Fauci and with the surgeon general.”
“And do you know what I said? I said, ‘Well, I would rather not have to travel, can we do something like a [Instagram] Live’ and they said that they’re open to me choosing a platform to do a Live but they never have taken that off the table for me to come to the White House," Minaj explained to followers.
The musician, who did not attend the 2021 Met Gala due to her unvaccinated status, continued, “And then just imagine someone saying, ‘Oh, no, we offered Nicki Minaj the same phone call we offer everybody else.’ What? You think they would offer that to Mookie in the projects. No. ‘Everybody else.’
“And I see why a lot of celebrities keep themselves bubbled up. You understand? We’re living in a place without free healthcare. So anybody in this country has the right to question anything about their health,” Minaj concluded.
The chart topping artist shocked her fans last week after she tweeted, “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t [be] for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.”
