What I went through when I was plus sized – Eniola Badmus
Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus has bemoaned the consistent defamatory statements she gets from Nigerians on social media.
She said she suffered “height of body shaming” when she was plus-size, and now that she is on her fitness journey, negative comments are still being hurled at her because of her political choice.
According to the Daily Post, Tiktoker, Okoye Blessing Nwakego, aka Ego, was recently sentenced to three years imprisonment by a Federal High Court in Lagos for accusing Badmus of connecting ladies to top politicians for prostitution.
Addressing the defamatory comments about her via her Twitter handle on Friday, Badmus reminded Nigerians that celebrities are also humans.
“You have no single fact/evidence but will sit behind your phones and make a smooth video defaming my personality. Why? When I was a plus size, it was the height of body shaming, now on my fitness journey, same negative comments when I made my political choice, same negatives.
“Guys, let people live their lives and respect them for it. Some of us have muscle to keep it going, how about those that can’t and silently struggle with depression and low self-esteem?
“Celebrities are human too, we have blood running through our veins like you. No one judge your choice or approach to life in your corner, so why judge me on personal and human actions?” she queried.
