A group of people staged an anti-vaccine protest outside the ‘Centre for Disease Control’ headquarters in Atlanta. They were chanting slogans using Nicki Minaj’s controversial tweets about the coronavirus vaccine as a reference.

Nicki Minaj told the truth to me. Fauci lied to me.

According to CBS46, a local television station, one of the protestors said,

We are here because the CDC has been lying to us for so long.

Initially, it was perceived that protestors against vaccine were Nicki Minaj fans instigated by her controversial tweets against COVID-19 vaccine.

However, as per the report of Insider, people gathered outside the CDC belong to a fringe political group known as the Black Hammer. The group wants to take advantage of media attention surrounding Minaj’s tweets.

Black Hammer is also organizing the protest in favor of Nicki Minaj as the group holds media responsible for portraying the wrong image of Minaj.

Black Hammer shared the details about the protest with its followers on Twitter. The group also added,

They would return to the CDC tomorrow (September 18) for ’round 2′.

Black Hammer is known for sharing anti-vaccination sentiments. The group has also posted an article related to COVID-19 vaccine, making false claims including,

Vaccines do not promise anything that will keep you safe from COVID-19.

There was another false claim made in the article,

Many have experienced severe allergies and death after receiving the Pfizer vaccine.

As per Insider, Minaj liked a tweet shared by Atlanta-based political journalist, Stephen Fowler who identified the protesters against vaccines as Black Hammer, highlighting their anti-vax stance.

Earlier, Minaj revealed on Twitter that she had to decline an invitation to the Met Gala because it was mandatory for attendees to be vaccinated,

If I get vaccinated it won’t [be] for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research.

Minaj revealed that her cousin did not take a COVID-19 vaccine because one of his friends became impotent after getting the vaccine. She also added,

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.

The Honorable Terrence Deyalsingh, Trinidad & Tobago’s Minister of Health responded to Minaj ‘claims saying,

It is, as far as we know, at this point in time – there has been no such reported either side effect or adverse event.

Furthermore, the United States’ leading coronavirus authority Dr. Anthony Fauci also denied Minaj’s claims while talking to CNN,

There’s no evidence […] nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would” cause fertility issues in men or women.
