For the past week, Nicki Minaj has sent waves across social media with her posts. The rumor started on Monday when the award-winning rapper revealed that she would not be attending the 2021 Met Gala. Nicki named lack of childcare for Papa Bear and the gala’s vaccination requirement as factors influencing their decision. The revelation quickly turned into a conversation about the effects of the vaccine, the research, and the freedom to question the vaccine. On Friday morning, politicians, media personalities and medical professionals had criticized Nicki’s comments. On Friday afternoon, Nicki launched public accusations against reporter Sharlene Rampersad for allegedly threatening her family.
Nicki calls reporter Sharlene Rampersad
Nicki began by posting screenshots of Sharlene’s WhatsApp messages to her family members. In the messages, Sharlene introduces herself and her position as a reporter at Guardian Media. She reveals her intentions to speak to a person named Mr. Daniel for an article. Sharlene sent eight messages on September 15 between 11:15 a.m. M. And 7:30 p.m. M.
When Sharlene didn’t receive a response, she changed the subject and warned the recipient, Mr. Daniel, that another news outlet was looking for him for the same story. Sent five messages in total in the second batch.
“But just to let you know, CNN is in the country looking for you,” Sharlene wrote. “And when they find you, they won’t hesitate to reveal where you live or where your girlfriend lives … anything and anyone that is tied to you.”
How the conversation about vaccination started
To reverse it, the story in question involves Nicki Minaj’s cousin friend. Monday, the rapper alleged on Twitter that his cousin in Trinidad is refusing to receive the vaccine because his friend experienced fertility problems after the Covid-19 vaccination.
“My cousin in Trinidad will not receive the vaccine because his friend received it and became impotent,” Nicki tweeted. His testicles swelled up. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl canceled the wedding. “
He continued to encourage readers to pray for his decision and to feel “comfortable” with it instead of “intimidating” them.

The reaction to his story was quick and harsh. From Joy reid for the doctor. Anthony Fauci, Nicki faced heavy criticism for alleged misinformation.
Then she shared talks of being invited to the White House calling it “a step in the right direction.” Soon after, White House officials declined the invitation according to television host Don Lemon. Officials reportedly only offered Nicki the opportunity to ask a doctor questions about Covid-19 vaccines. This led to an Instagram Live of Nicki. She responded by saying that her character was being killed and calling Don Lemon an “Uncle Tomiana”.
Nicki and Sharlene exchange words on Twitter
After Nicki posted Sharlene’s WhatsApp messages, she alleged that the media is “forcing [her] family to hide. “He made his own threats against Sharlene telling her to” count her days “between derogatory insults like” b *** h “and” dirty h * e. “He also released what appeared to be the phone number of the reporter and two photos.
Shortly after, Nicki apparently discovered a Twitter thread posted by Sharlene on Thursday. Sharlene spoke about Trinidad and Tobago being in a state of emergency and that vaccination is her “way out.” In addition to statistics on the unvaccinated population on the islands, Sharlene accused Nicki of using her platform “to spread lies.”
“We are not an island fantasy that you can bring up if you are bored,” Sharlene tweeted. “1,391 people have died from Covid-19 here. Leave us alone now. “
Nicki began her explosion by questioning whether the account that posted the tweets is the same person who “harasses her family.”
“Stupid piece of shit,” Nicki also tweeted to Sharlene. “You used threats and manipulation. I also want to know how CNN feels about you including them in this for your personal schedule. “
Sharlene then clarified that there was no threat. He reiterated that Guardian “would not reveal private information” and said he was presenting it as a “better option” through CNN.
Nicki then told Sharlene to “go away [her] family alone “and to deal with her, while Sharlene calls” dumb “and” clown “.
Nicki Minaj’s responses to Sharlene are no longer available on the platform.
