Omotola Jalade who graced the cover of Guardian Magazine, stated that she has faced bullets before which makes negative reactions nothing to her as she reacted to her viral tweet which sparked controversy.
She had tweeted:
“The country under your watch is Hellish! The lack of money in circulation, coupled with continuous assault and killings by uniformed men, will make this country implode! It is unbearable. Do something. Insecurity. Fear and desperation everywhere.”
However,the response to her tweet was negative . In an interview with Guardian Life,she said
I’m not overwhelmed by the reactions, especially the negative ones. I expected them. These ones were just talk. I faced bullets before. I faced military men pointing guns at me, and so, the negative reactions were nothing to me.
And why would I want to ruffle any nest? Who doesn’t want to hide his or her head? Do you know that when I had cause to speak up against previous governments, I was attacked? Not by words alone.
