Azealia Banks Wants to Know Why Nicki Minaj Is Questioning Vaccine But Not Butt Injections
On Friday (Sept. 17), Banks shared her opinion on Nicki's reluctance to get the COVID-19 vaccine by citing fake news as her reasoning.
"For as many Black women that have died or had their legs amputated or body parts amputated because of black market butt injects, why do we not have Nicki Minaj questioning that?" Banks said on Instagram, referencing Nicki's alleged derriere augmentations. "For someone who has lyrics like, 'Woke up, the price of coke up,' knowing that 90 percent of the cocaine that comes into the United States is laced with Fentanyl. Like, you wanna encourage your fans to snort Fentanyl as cocaine rather than get a vaccine."
Banks, who's vaccinated, later added, “I’ve never witnessed this woman be so fucking stupid, and so fucking selfish."
Nicki has been in the headlines all week after revealing she had COVID-19. She told a story about her cousin's friend, who got the vaccine and experienced swollen testicles. The tweet about the incident caused the rapper to receive backlash.
"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 on Sept. 13.
Nicki's claim got so big, health officials from Trinidad and Tobago came out to deny the authenticity of the rapper's story. Following social media spats with the likes of MSNBC national correspondent Joy-Ann Reid and TV personality Piers Morgan, Nicki later claimed she was in Twitter jail possibly due to her comments on the vaccine. “I’m in Twitter jail y’all,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “They didn’t like what I was saying over there on that block, I guess my poll was gonna be asking questions is OK...I like being fking dumb. Then boom. Can’t tweet.”
Twitter denied the claim Nicki was banned from Twitter.
Banks seems to get off on slighting Nicki. Back in May, she accused Nicki of being a cocaine user after Nicki went on Instagram Live with the sniffles, which Nicki claimed was due to her constantly being cold.
