Controversial American rapper Nikki Minaj expressed her COVID vaccine hesitancy in a series of tweets Thursday, leading to protests by several of her supporters outside the CDC headquarters in Atlanta.
"We are here because the CDC has been lying to us for too long," said one protestor to a reporter on the ground. "[Minaj] stood up and said 'I am questioning this vaccine,' and we should all question this vaccine."
When asked if he had seen Minaj's latest series of tweets, the man said, "I've seen all of them!"
"Fauci lied to me," the group could then be heard chanting, among other similar slogans.
Minaj first tweeted how the recent Met Gala wasn't worth her getting vaccinated, stating she would get the vaccine "once I feel I've done enough research" and that she was "working on that now."
Minaj's Twitter account was suspended following the Twitter tirade. She asked the public what "scared y'all so much" to justify getting her account disabled.
She told her followers on Instagram Live to "Gather," adding: "So you guys, if you haven't already heard, I have been suspended from Twitter. Twitter. Twitter!"
A spokesperson for the CDC stated: "Throughout this pandemic, we have urged platforms, small and big, to take care in what they are conveying around COVID-19 vaccines because we know that information will be impactful on people's behavior."
The same person then recommended "not listening" to people on social media if they don't have a medical background.
Minaj added: "I'll never go back on Twitter because now it's starting to feel a little scary," given her vaccine hesitancy.
