Laide Bakare under attack for mocking Eniola Badmus’ post
Nollywood actress, Laide Bakare, was heavily criticized by Nigerians after she poked fun at Eniola's Badmus' attempt to pacify aggrieved actors in the movie industry.
Badmus in the post shared via her Instagram page on Tuesday advised her colleagues to stop attacking one another and embrace love.
She also begged people to stop making them hurt each other.
Her post came after Toyin Abraham also addressed her long-running beef with a colleague, Liz Anjorin during an Instagram live session.
Toyin, while addressing the issue, claimed that she never paid any blogger to write about the actress, as Liz has severally alleged.
Shortly after Eniola pleaded with warring parties to sheath their swords, Laide Bakare took to the comment section to ridicule her post.
The actress wrote "Yinmu" on the comment section under Eniola's post, an act that made scores of Instagram followers publicly attacked her.
One Instagram user, @mo___bewaji wrote, "@laidebakare you really embarrassed yourself with this stupid comment, I now dislike you, must you comment, if you can't read and understand then Fuck off the gram".
Another Instagram follower, adekazeem22 wrote,
"@laidebakare not funny though. Someone wrote a sensitive statement that what to be addressed and you could put out there is yinmu….. Do you sometimes go back to think of how social media especially fans and bloggers have damaged the relationship and communication within yoruba nollywood? The last set of generation with good characters in Yoruba nollywood stopped @bimbooshin @faithiawilliams @bukkywright and others before them.
"You see today since your generation joined nollywood there is nothing they have added other than chasing clout, high level of disrespect to their senior colleagues, fake life yet wear good wigs with empty brain. I put it straight to you and deny it if I am wrong since the likes of iyabo and mercy joined Yoruba hood, that was when competition started and that has been passed down to generation after them.
If @eniola_badmus can put a sensitive that in one way or the other affect the growth of community, society, and the country at large and all you could add is yinmu, indeed I am right after all….."
