Nicki Minaj's bogus COVID-19 vaccine claims wasted the Trinidad and Tobago health department's time, according to the country's health minister.

Terrence Deyalsingh, Trinidad and Tobago's minister of health, led a COVID-19 update on Wednesday morning where he addressed the rapper's claims about the vaccine causing testicular swelling.

Minaj told a story about her cousin's friend in Trinidad, who she said became impotent and suffered from swollen testicles as a result of the vaccine, by way of explaining her absence from the Met Gala on Monday. She told her 22 million Twitter followers that she skipped the star-studded event due to its vaccination requirements, and the swollen testicles story quickly circulated online.

And as mentioned, Trinidad is not impressed.
