Nicki Minaj Blasts Cancel Culture — Compares It To Communist China: ‘Don’t Y’all See What’s F**king Happening?’
Rap star Nicki Minaj clapped back at the mainstream media for attacking her after she aired skepticism about taking the Covid-19 vaccine. She then slammed “cancel culture” in the US, comparing it to what’s happening in “communist China.”
The Trinidadian-born rapper stood by her earlier stance to question government authority when it comes to vaccination — doubling down on how suppression of free speech is becoming a norm for those trying to speak their mind.
“You should be able to ask questions about anything you’re putting inside your body,” Minaj said on her Instagram stories defending her decision.
She pointed out for instance how women tend to be meticulous even on things like wig glue as she compared the same vigilance she’s putting towards the vaccine.
“But you can’t innocently ask questions about something going on in your body?” Minaj said.
“I remember going to China and they were telling us you cannot speak out against the people in power there, et cetera, and I remember all of us thinking, oh, ok, we understand and we respect the laws here and that it’s so different from where we live,” she continued.
The rapper then warned against “cancel culture” and how it is impacting free speech in America.
“Don’t y’all see what’s fucking happening?” the rap artist said.
“Don’t y’all see that we are living now in that time, where people will turn their back on you for not agreeing? People will isolate you if you simply speak and ask a question,” she added.
Media attacks Minaj over vaccine stance
Minaj has come under fire from the mainstream media and progressive pundits for her recent social media posts expressing wariness over the Covid-19 vaccine, including one in which she said she turned down an invitation to the Met Gala because of the vaccine mandate.
“If I get vaccinated, it won’t be for the Met,” she tweeted earlier this week. “It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.”
They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one 🙏♥️

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid slammed Minaj on her show for putting people “in the position of dying” with her position about Covid-19 vaccines.
“People like Nicki Minaj, I have to say this. You have a platform, sister, that is 22 million followers. Ok? I have two million followers. You have 22 million followers on Twitter. For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my God, sister, you could do better than that … for you to use your platform to put people in the position of dying from a disease they don’t have to die from, oh my God,” Reid added.
This is what happens when you’re so thirsty to down another black woman (by the request of the white man), that you didn’t bother to read all my tweets. “My God SISTER do better” imagine getting ur dumb ass on tv a min after a tweet to spread a false narrative about a black woman https://t.co/4UviONyTHy

Minaj in a succeeding tweet said that a friend of a male relative in Trinidad became “impotent” and had “swollen testicles” after receiving the vaccine — although Dr. Anthony Fauci has already dismissed the claim saying “there’s no evidence that it happens.”
The 38-year old star rapper was also met with backlash for sharing videos from Tucker Carlson’s show, where the Fox News host defended Minaj’s decision to speak her mind about her thoughts on the vaccine.
Right. I can’t speak to, agree with, even look at someone from a particular political party. Ppl aren’t human any more. If you’re black & a Democrat tells u to shove marbles up ur ass, you simply have to. If another party tells u to look out for that bus, stand there & get hit https://t.co/OhjQZCbmBa

“If another party tells you to look out for that bus, stand there & get hit,” she added.
The rapper also said left-leaning Twitter tried to censor her from the social media after she posted her opinion about the Covid-19 vaccine.

Twitter said it did not censor the rapper, commenting: “Twitter did not take any enforcement action on the account referenced” as reported by The Daily Beast.
Pardon some of the coarse language in this, but @NickiMinaj went on Instagram Live last night to her 157,000,000 followers and gave a very powerful speech about how America’s Cancel Culture is turning us into a country like China.
I love to see people waking up & standing up! pic.twitter.com/MXy9y8q1E6
