Deyemi Apologizes To Genevieve Over #WomenSupportingWomen Challenge Gaffe



Nigerian actor Deyemi Okanlawon has sent apologies to Genevieve Nnaji after he incurred her wrath for making jokes out of the #WomenSupportingWomen (WSW) Challenge.

The WSW challenge sees women post black and white photos of themselves on social media and make a pledge to support their fellow women after being nominated by another woman.

And this challenge attracted male celebrities like Deyemi and other colleagues to dress like women to take part in the challenge.

Deyemi’s post however seemed to have irked Genevieve and she took to his comments section to call him to order.

In a reaction to Deyemi’s post, Genevieve accused the actor of making jokes out of the challenge.

“We seek solace in humour to distract us from pain or discomfort. Tell me what it is you feel exactly? You see, that feeling that triggered you to make a joke of a movement that can only be understood by those it was meant for; the feeling of being overlooked or disregarded is part of the point of the challenge. No one likes to feel invisible. You felt it for a second. Women feel it every day of their lives. Let us hold our own hands if we want to. Be ok with it. Not everything is about you or for laughs. Shalom,” she commented.

But Deyemi in an apologetic response also wrote;

“Dear big sis @genevievennaji… I know your heart and I stan forever! And to anyone else female/male who may have misconstrued the intent and felt bad, do know that I see you and I’m truly sorry you feel that way. In these times we need all the love, support and smiles we can get!”
