Tucker Carlson used his Fox News show on Tuesday to ask the rapper Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend to get in touch with him for an interview.

Minaj had tweeted on Monday that her cousin in Trinidad wouldn’t get the coronavirus vaccine because his friend “became impotent” after he got the shot.

“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. 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,” she tweeted.

There is no scientific evidence that the vaccine can cause such issues.

Carlson said on Tuesday: “Before we get to the next segment, we haven’t been able to figure out whether this show is broadcast in Trinidad.”

“But if Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend is watching, or his former fiancée is watching, we want to hear your story. We’ll come to Port of Spain to see you.”

On his Monday night show, Carlson praised Minaj for her tweet, saying her view “seems sensible.”
