Award-winning Nollywood Actress, Toyin Abraham, has apologized to her followers after being dragged on Twitter over what her fans deemed “insensitive and ill-timed” tweets.
The film producer had earlier in the day posted about her new movie release “Fate of Alakada”, she tweeted: “Fate of Alakada still showing in all cinemas nationwide”
A tweet majority of her followers deemed insensitive due to the atmosphere in the country. As they supposed she should be talking about the ongoing #ENDSARS protests and not promoting her new movie.
Following the Twitter dragging, she decided to apologise on her social media handles and wrote:
“I apologize to everyone who may have viewed my post, promoting my new film, Fate of Alakada, as insensitive and inconsiderate. Truly, the campaign against police brutality is a crucial one, requiring all hands, including mine, on deck.
“Kindly forgive me but it is important I mention that long before today I have been active in the #endsars campaign. I have never failed to lend my voice to the fight for a better life for our youths in particular, and Nigerians in general.
“It is easy to blame this error on my social media handler but I gladly bear the brunt for it. I allowed the excitement of promoting my movie to override my responsibility to you, but now I stand corrected and stand with you to speak out against this menace.”
