The media hardly celebrate good things about celebrities- IK Ogbonna
Fans of model turned actor, IK Ogbonna were shocked when he decided to sue an Instagram troll over some allegations she made about him via a video clip she posted on her Instagram page. The lady had posted a video where she made some allegations that the bald-headed Nollywood actor is a homosexual.
Reacting to her claim, Ogbonna in a chat with Punch said trolling people on social media is growing by the day, adding that trolling is seen as a cheap way to get followers on social media.
“I am not just an actor, I represent Nollywood. Trolling people on social media is growing by the day. They have seen it as a cheap means to get followers on social media. I blame the media to some extent because they hardly celebrate the good things about celebrities. I am a father, these days; our kids are on social media so they get to see these things. I got a lot of calls from my senior colleagues, most of them were really bitter about it. If people feel that they can just come on social media to say whatever they want to say, then they should be ready to face the consequences of their actions.
“There are people out there that would believe anything they see or hear on social media”.
