Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has described how he received abuse from fans after sharing an image of well-known cross-dresser Bobrisky on his Instagram page.
Edochie received some irate comments from fans after a video he posted on his YouTube channel on Saturday claimed he was dating the controversial cross-dresser.
The actor bemoaned the level of prejudice being shown to individuals like Bobrisky, arguing that since they were also made by God, they ought to be treated equally with everyone else.
"Earlier this year, I wished Bobrisky a happy birthday by posting his photo on my Instagram page," he claimed. And then my page literally blew up and went on fire.
“By the time I came back, I had thousands of messages on the post, and then my DM was flooded with messages. Somebody actually sent me a DM and said that I’m sleeping with Bobrisky. just because I wished him a happy birthday on my page.
“Someone even called me and requested that I pull down the post. Some people were even telling me how God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Are you God? Did God send you to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?
“Stop judging people; you are not God." Bobrisky is a human being like every other person. Why do we discriminate against people? We should stop all of these. God said to love your neighbor as yourself. Nigerians rest”.
