On Feb. 16, the "Moment 4 Life" singer cryptically tweeted, "Nothing like watching someone speak confidently about something they know nothing about."
Nicki didn't explain what her message was pertaining to, but the Philadelphia Public Health Department saw her tweet as an opportunity to pounce and throw one of her old messages back in her face.
Back in September 2021, Nicki caused quite the stir over her position on the COVID-19 vaccine, and it had to do with, among other things, her cousin's friend's testicles and a canceled wedding.
"My cousin in Trinidad won't get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & 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 & make sure you're comfortable with ur decision, not bullied."
The Philadelphia Public Health Department replied to Nicki's new tweet with a screenshot of her viral message from last fall — as if to say she was guilty of speaking confidently about something she knew nothing about.
Back when Nicki made her bizarre claim, it got so much attention that health officials in the United States and Trinidad had to publicly debunk them. As if this wasn't confusing enough, Nicki later encouraged people to get the vaccine if their job required it and said she'd likely get the shot before her next tour.
