ANTIVAX – He had to explain to the press his anti-Covid plans. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson found himself talking about rapper Nicki Minaj and her claims about the effect of the vaccine on the testicles of her cousin’s friend, strongly denounced by the authorities.

This unexpected question-and-answer session came on Tuesday, September 14, after the star revealed to her 22.6 million Twitter followers that she had not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19 and was inquiring about the vaccines.

Nicki Minaj then told the story of her cousin in Trinidad who refused to be vaccinated claiming that after being vaccinated a friend of hers became impotent and his testicles swelled.

According to experts interviewed by the fact-checking service of theAFP, no evidence exists of an effect of anti-Covid vaccines on fertility or male sexual organs.

Asked about the subject during a press conference with Boris Johnson, England’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty immediately denounced the “myths” surrounding the vaccination against Covid-19.

Tenacious myths

“There are a number of myths going around, some of which are clearly ridiculous,” he said at the press conference. “Some (…) are clearly intended to scare people. He’s one of them. ”

Welcoming that most people ignore false information, Mr Whitty lashed out at those who “peddle untruths”, adding: “they should be ashamed”.

Noticeably less at ease, Boris Johnson, 57, said he was “not as familiar with the works of Nicki Minaj as (he) probably should be”.

The American rapper then sent a voicemail via Twitter to Boris Johnson, with a British accent, claiming she was born in the UK and went to college with Margaret Thatcher who told her “a lot of nice things” about Boris Johnson.

Asked about Nicki Minaj on Wednesday September 15, in the morning, the Minister of Health, Sajid Javid, called on celebrities to be careful what they say.

Speaking on Times Radio of “people who spread disinformation” Sajid Javid said: “clearly that doesn’t help.” Addressing famous personalities, he said to them: “Please don’t do this. You really hurt people because vaccines save lives and by spreading lies you are doing the opposite. ”
