#BallGate2021 continues for Nicki Minaj.
The “Superbass” singer claims Twitter locked her in Twitter jail on Wednesday, September 15, after she made controversial claims about covid-19 and being invited to the White House.
In an Instagram story posted yesterday, the rap superstar wrote, “I’m in Twitter jail y’all. They didn’t like what I was saying over there on that block, I guess 🤨 my poll was gonna be Asking question is OK I like being fkng dumb Then boom. Can’t tweet 😆🤣.”
This IG post comes after Minaj said she was invited to the White House to speak with officials regarding the covid-19 vaccine, which she claimed to cause impotency earlier in the week.
“I like being fkng dumb”
#BallGate began earlier this week when a fan asked Minaj why she wouldn’t be attending the Met Gala. She explained that their covid-19 double dose vaccination requirement is not something she could provide or agree with, so she skipped it.
Minaj then went on to tell a tale about her cousin’s friend who got vaccinated and in return became ‘impotent.’
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied

“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied,” she tweeted.
These are her claims, not ours.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, got wind of Minaj’s claims and immediately shut them down.
During an appearance on “CNN” with Jake Tapper he said, “There’s no evidence that it happens — nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen, so the answer to your question is no.”
The official statement said, “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.”
Now, in yet another blow to her credibility, Twitter is saying it had not levied any penalty against her.
The company said in a statement via The DailyBeast, “Twitter did not take any enforcement action on the account referenced.”
At the time of writing this article, Minaj has not tweeted or posted anything on Instagram addressing Twitter’s claims; however, she did publish a 15-minute long video to her IG grid on Wednesday explaining the White House invite drama.
“Um, let me ask y’all something. In the ten, 12, 13 years how many ever years you’ve known of me, do y’all think I would go on the internet and LIE about being invited to the f***ing White House,” she started off. “Do you guys see what is happening right now? Oh my goodness. If y’all don’t see… it’s not even surprising to me that they had to use one of us.”

She then went on to say, “When I do a call with my management and my publicist… they were on the phone call. You know what the request was? ‘We’d like to offer Nicki an invitation to the White House to speak with two people, Dr. Fauci and the Surgeon General.”
This is where Minaj claims she suggested the idea of a call rather than traveling and meeting in person.
