The celebrities have never been less OK. This week Nicki Minaj claimed on Twitter that her cousin’s friend in Trinidad got the Covid vaccine, then suffered from swollen testicles and became impotent.

Online discourse blew up. There was a Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend backlash, a Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend backlash to the backlash, and eventually a Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend press conference where Trinidad’s actual health minister denied any recent cases of the second jab swelling anyone’s balls, including, presumably, those of Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend.
