MSNBC’s Joy Reid unloads on Nicki Minaj for claims about COVID vaccine causing swollen testicles

MSNBC host Joy Reid started her Monday show by addressing the continuing efforts by anti-vaccine activists to scare people off from taking the COVID-19 vaccine

After speaking to Charlie Sykes and Dr. Joseph Allen, associate professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, Reid asked hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj what she was thinking after a bizarre firestorm on Twitter. Minaj falsely claimed that the COVID-19 vaccine caused “swollen testicles.”

“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met,” she wrote. “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 and face.”

“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it and became impotent,” she continued. “His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it and make sure you’re comfortable with your decision, not bullied.”

COVID has been known to cause impotence, but the vaccine has not.

Reid reached her limit. Like many vaccinated people, begging people to save themselves can be exhausting, and Reid explained she was over it.

“You are not going quit your job unless you want to be broke and poor and sit home with no money and do your research on Tik Tok and watch Tik Toks all day of other unvaccinated people,” said Reid. “It’s going to happen because people are going to have to face between being broke and being vaccinated. In the end, I’m done hand-holding people too. I’ve reached my limit. I’ve reached my limit. I’m not begging anyone else.”

“People like Nicki Minaj, you have a platform that’s 22 million followers. I have two million,” Reid continued. “You have 22 million followers on Twitter. For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my God, you could do better than that. It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing that you got that. That people listen to you and they listen to you more than they listen to me. For you to use your platform to put people in the position of dying from a disease they don’t have to die from, oh, my God! As fan, as a hip-hop fan, as somebody who is your fan, I’m so sad that you did that. So sad that you did that, sister. Oh, my God. Lord.”

  1. Oh yeah, because you know soooo much about covid & the vaccine, Joy!! We should all just listen to you…you superior human being!?? I wish you would stop & just shut your mouth!
    Let the American people be responsible for their own health decisions!!!

  2. These people are hysterical fear mongers who just can’t stand it that some people refuse to go along with the crowd on vaccines. Get over yourself. If I was comfortable with the vaccine I would take it. I’m not so I won’t. Why doesn’t Joy Reid mind her own business. The vac doesn’t keep her from having to continue wearing a mask, and she can still spread it to others as well as get it herself. So the only difference in her and me is she feels if she gets it she will be safe from dying. I feel if I get covid I can take Ivermectin and monoclonal antibiotics and I won’t die either. So what is really the difference. None, except I have the right to handle it my way and she has the right to handle it her way. But marxists can’t stand for people to have rights. They want everyone to do exactly as the government tells them like good little communists. Well I’m not a communist. I believe in freedom and the constitution recognizes my rights to freedom and that is want she can’t stand. She is a good little communist so she can’t stand people who refuse to believe everything exactly like she believes. Well my advice to her is get over it!

  3. Yeah I don’t think anyone with a brain would get medical advice from idiot Joy Reid. The woman is so ignorant the only channel that would have her is MSNBC.

  4. Proud of Joy for speaking up about the dangerous results of another not very bright anti vaccinator individual. Obvious they never got vaccinated for any of the other diseases–or did they?? Just wondering and wondering how their children can go to school if they don’t get the vaccination against MMR. Oh, I’ll bet they don’t even know what I’m talking about. PJ

    1. Hey Syphyllis, just curious- do you hear yourself when you talk? Or does it sound just like the same bs diarrhea as we read when we see your comment? I can’t tell if you were born stupid or if the vaccine did it to ya, but either way it’s just another good reason for me to stay far away from it! I’ll continue to mind MY OWN personal health choices and you can continue to shove YOURS down all the other “anti-vaxx’ers” throats. Have a WONDERFUL day! 😀

  5. I really didn’t think “nextgennews.org” was bias, but I’ve been proven wrong by this trashy article. You call this “journalism?” Please. The person who wrote this article is no better than that idiot Reid on whatever daytime program it is that she’s on, I can’t remember the name of it with out scrolling up to look and I don’t care enough to do so. This is the most bias, one-sided, partisan article ever written on this site. It’s safe to say 1) I will not be injecting myself with any mystery chemical concoction the government is selling and 2) I’ll definitely be unsubscribing to this heap of crap you call entertainment.

  6. Joy Reid is a Biden & Harris butt sucker spook and falling in line for the nazi line of the face mask. Balls getting big is a hood thing.
