‘I Have Reached My Limit!’ Joy Reid Goes Off on Must See Rant About Claim that Vaccine Causes Swollen Testicles

Joy Reid is one of the joyful people on television. She has a powerful analytical mind but never takes herself too seriously, which is not to say that she doesn’t take her job in calling out abuses on the right very seriously. On Monday night, Joy set her sights on Nicki Minaj, a hip-hop artist.

Let’s leave it to Wiki to give a sentence long overview as to give those of us over forty an idea as to who this woman is. Suffice it to say she is incredibly power due to her influence: Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, known professionally as Nicki Minaj, is a Trinidadian-born rapper, singer, and songwriter. She is known for her animated flow in her rapping and versatility as a recording artist. And that is what has Joy so furious, this woman weighs in on men’s testicles. (Video Below)

You are not going quit your job unless you want to be broke and poor and sit home with no money and do your research on Tik Tok and watch Tik Toks all day of other unvaccinated people,” said Reid. “It’s going to happen because people are going to have to face between being broke and being vaccinated. In the end, I’m done hand-holding people too. I’ve reached my limit. I’ve reached my limit. I’m not begging anyone else.”

“People like Nicki Minaj, you have a platform that’s 22 million followers. I have two million,” Reid continued. “You have 22 million followers on Twitter. For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my God, you could do better than that. It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing that you got that. That people listen to you and they listen to you more than they listen to me. For you to use your platform to put people in the position of dying from a disease they don’t have to die from, oh, my God! As fan, as a hip-hop fan, as somebody who is your fan, I’m so sad that you did that. So sad that you did that, sister. Oh, my Good Lord.
