Nicki Minaj has had a strange morning on Twitter.

First, the rapper sowed COVID-19 misinformation, writing that her “cousin’s friend” had been stricken with male impotence and “swollen testicles” after receiving a vaccine.

“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it and 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 and make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied.”

Then, Minaj stated that she would not attend the Met Gala ball going down today due to its policy of mandatory vaccination. ” If I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met,” the popstar tweeted. “It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.”

Throughout her tweetstorm, Minaj did clarify that she believes in some information dispersed by the medical community about the COVID-19 pandemic. She encouraged her followers to wear masks, and stated that she will almost certainly get vaccinated eventually. “A lot of countries won’t let people work w/o the vaccine,” she wrote. “I’d def recommend they get the vaccine. They have to feed their families.”

But the point still stands — Minaj stated anecdotally that the vaccine causes male impotence, something not ratified by the scientific community.  Indeed, while the vaccines don’t cause impotency, COVID-19 has been found to, meaning that men who are worried about their potential wives leaving them hanging at the altar have more reason to get jabbed, not less.

A lot of people called out Minaj’s claim. But most notable of all was the clapback from Western Sydney Health, who had a meme of their own in store.

While most appreciated the tweet for setting the record straight, it invoked the ire of Minaj’s stans, who call themselves Barbz.

Truly we live in the wildest timeline.
