This may include your favorite celeb.
Let’s get to it.
Last week, Award winning and fucking (excuse my French) rich Rapper, Lil Wayne (you may recognize him as the guy who pioneered the carrying of the red cup in rap music videos. Nah, it wasn’t Olamide that started the movement duh!) set the Internet on fire when he asked what “Black Lives Matter” was.
Mr Wayne didn’t only ask, he literally made the movement seem irrelevant and stormed out of his Interview.
Well, even though he apologized days later, he already got backlash from the public.
However, Lil Wayne is NOT the first celebrity to have unpopular opinions about a popular movement.
We’ve had famous people here in Nigeria do that too.
Here’s a list…
So last week, an interview of Lil Wayne surfaced online. He had made some comments on the Black Lives Matter movement and people were not happy.
First came this…
Then came the backlash…

You may or may not know her.
But the Actress has been working for a while. And some months ago, she granted an interview with the New Telegraph where she gave quite an interesting perspective on gender equality.
According to her;
I’m sorry I don’t think men and women should have equal rights in this case. I think the male should have more than the female, but it should be with proportion, maybe on a ratio of 60 to 40. The reason why I think so is because we women tend to be extremely domineering when it comes to issues and sometimes sentimental. Men can be detailed even though we are sometimes. So, there are proportions in all these things. The role of a man can never be over emphasized. Even though I’m a woman rights activist, I still believe in the place of a woman and a man. The man is supposed to be a step ahead of the woman; you can never take that away
Well, let’s just say her comment section wasn’t equally in support of her after this…
Wawu, that escalated really quickly.
Quite famous for making certain comments about the African American struggle, Stacey Dash is one of the famous people who have constantly made headlines for being a “coon.”
Earlier this year, she said there should be no BET and black history month in response to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
Well, black America went in…
Even BET wanted their money back…
Let’s just say Stacey got dashed the backlash in a major way.
Well, the Ooni’s wife had an interesting angu on gender equality.
And she went to obodo oyibo to deliver the angu in an accent some of us are in awe of.
Well, her position as the wife of a King may be popular but that angu? It wasn’t.
See her speech here…
Here’s what the people had to say…
