A small but vocal group of Nicki Minaj supporters protested outside the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta on Wednesday.
According to Yahoo! News, the group was comprised of members of the anti-vaccine Black Hammer organization.
The protesters shouted “Nicki told the truth!” and “Fauci lied to me!” – referring to Dr. Anthony Fauci, Covid-19 adviser to Pres. Joe Biden.
The demonstrators also chanted “down with the CDC, Fauci lies to me.”
A man in a black mask holding a megaphone said, “Nicki Minaj said I’m not going to take your vaccine.”
The activists approached cars leaving the CDC headquarters on the city’s northeast side.
Nicki sparked controversy earlier this week when she tweeted her reason for skipping this year’s Met Gala.
The “Anaconda” rapper told her 22.6 million followers she was unvaccinated and preferred to do her own research before getting the vaccine.
She also claimed a friend of her cousin in her native Trinidad experienced impotency and swollen testicles after getting the shots.
Health ministers in Trinidad held an urgent press conference to deny the claim.
The ministers told the BBC “there is absolutely no reported side effect or adverse event of testicular swelling in Trinidad.”

I support & echo @NICKIMINAJ’s intelligent advice to use prayer, critical thinking not be bullied into making a very important decision about your body & personal health. It’s a sad day in America when we are censored, cancelled & ridiculed for exercising our God-given freedoms
