AceShowbiz - Donald Trump Jr.'s attempt to shame Dr. Anthony Faucy didn't go as planned. After trying to diss the physician-scientist by bringing up Nicki Minaj's old tweet about COVID-19 vaccine, the eldest child of former president Donald Trump found himself being clowned by social media users.
On Wednesday, January 19, Trump Jr. made use of Twitter to react to a New York Post article that read, "Man's agonizing penis pain is found to be rare side effect of COVID. Alongside the report, he attached Minaj's old tweet about side effect of COVID-19 vaccines, which cause quite a controversy in September 2021.
"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," so read the femcee's post. In his own message, Trump Jr. wrote, "It seems Nicki Minaj is the science and not Fauci!"
Instead of getting support, Trump Jr. drew backlash over his statement. "Sir you're talking bout two different things! She was talking about the vaccine NOT Covid," one person argued. Another suggested, "You people need to learn how to read. [The article] says from COVID not the vaccine."
The criticism continued with one writing, "Seem like he can't read. Vaccine and covid are not the same." A different user commented, "Lol the New York post is saying the side effect is from COVID, Nicki is saying her friend said it was from the VACCINE! Donald Jr clearly can't differentiate 2 different sides of an argument."
While Trump Jr. might be against COVID-19 vaccine, his father got the booster already and even encouraged people to get vaccinated. In December, he pushed back on Candace Owens' skepticism about the effectiveness and safety of COVID-19 vaccine. "Forget about the mandates, people have to have their freedom, but at the same time, the vaccine is one of the greatest achievements of mankind," he told his longtime supporter.
