The uproar over the article written by Reuben Abati, former media assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on the just concluded Big Brother Naija reality TV show especially his body shaming statements directed at one of the housemates, Tboss, has continued to linger.
A good number of Nigerian celebrities have been weighing in on the article on social media titled; ‘Television As Madness’’ which concluded that Tboss dominated the reality TV show with her Jezebelic antics.
Abati, who had so much to say about the reality TV show in the article, noted that he had seen better breasts, while referring to the naked antics of Tboss while she was in the house.
In her reaction to the article, ace movie director, Kemi Adetiba said the reality show is not for everyone to watch and Abati’s comments were not the best thing to say especially to someone else’s daughter.
“I just read the article by Mr. Reuben Abati in relation to #BBNaija and I’m in absolute SHOCK. Is it verified that he wrote this?
“Such condescending language on someone’s daughter washed down to zero with words.
“Girls sexually belittle because of a show that never claimed to be anything but what it is.
“The girls were called whores & jezebels, but the men who joined them in these “love” games are?? Never mind the men.Focus on the loose women,” Kemi tweeted.
Former winner of Big Brother Africa reality TV show, Uti Nwachukwu, also reacted to Abati’s article saying his comments about Tboss is a confirmation that the Nigerian government has failed its citizens.
Uti also called on women to gather and defend themselves especially with the way they are being spoken to on social media.
Chatterbox media personality, Toke Makinwa also reacted to the article by Abati saying she can’t imagine how he came about writing such an article against a woman.
“Just read the article Mr Reuben Abati wrote on the just concluded #BBnaija and I don’t know what I feel exactly. Wow, just WOW.
“From body shaming to being so disrespectful I’m just wondering how he wrote it, like HOW?
“It’s hard being a woman; it’s even harder when other women make it hard to be. May God help us,” Toke tweeted.
