Nicki Minaj fans are defending the queen!
The Barbz (Nicki’s nickname for her loyal supporters) protested outside of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta.
They chanted phrases like, “Nicki Minaj told me the truth. [Dr.] Fauci lied to me,” and “Nicki, the queen of rap, stand up. Nicki, multiple platinum plaques, stand up,” XXL reports. One barb said she’s also questioning the vaccine.
Take a look at a video:

The protest comes after Nicki received backlash for her Tweet about her cousin’s experience taking the vaccine. The “Pills N’ Potions” rapper said her family in Trinidad had swollen testicles after getting the shot. Earlier this week, Trinidad’s health minister said there wasn’t a record of any case Nicki described.
