Western Sydney Health has stepped in to fact check Nicki Minaj in truly the most bizarre bingo card moment for 2021.
The rapper raised eyebrows when she claimed she wasn't going to the infamous Met Gala because it required all attendees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
She wrote on Twitter: "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."
The 'Pound the Alarm' artist then issued an even more strange claim to her 22.6 million followers.
"My cousin in Trinidad won't get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent," she wrote. "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."
No approved coronavirus vaccine has shown evidence of impotence or swollen testicles.
However, Nicki's shoutout sparked a wave of messages from people urging her not to spread vaccine misinformation when the world desperately needs the facts to be clear.
Nicki even got fact checked by Western Sydney Local Health District, who said: "We promise to leave the rapping to Nicki Minaj if she leaves medicine to doctors and scientists."
The post said the usual side effects of the vaccine includes tiredness, headache, muscle pain, fever and chills, and joint pain.
Their tweet was liked and shared by thousands of people who all promoted the positive vaccine message.
While a world renowned rapper being fact checked by a humble Western Sydney health body is wild, the fallout for Nicki reached nearly the highest of highs in the UK.
Ms Minaj got dunked on by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who said during a press conference: "I am not as familiar with the works of Nicki Minaj as I probably should be.
"But I am familiar with Nikki Kanani, a superstar GP of Bexley who has appeared many times before you, who will tell you vaccines are wonderful and everybody should get them. That's why I prefer to listen to Nikki Kanani."
Nicki responded to the PM in a voice note saying that she loved what Boris said and claimed she's actually British and went to university with Margaret Thatcher.
A truly and utterly bizarre day in the world of celebrity, coronavirus and vaccines.
