Ik Ogbonna receives backlash over comment on transgender video
Nollywood actor IK Ogbonna has elicited reactions on social media following his comment on a video of a father meeting his transgender daughter.
The video showed a man who was in tears as his son, who is now a lady, walked up to him. The man, who was obviously not happy with the change, continually asked his child, “Why?”
Reacting to the video, Ogbonna wrote, “Society won… over religious and cultural values. Parents don’t have to accept certain things. Somethings would never stick as normal.”
The actor’s comment elicited mixed reactions from netizens, who understood his statement differently.
While some felt like the actor spoke against it, others were swift to chastise him, as they felt he was giving a thumbs up to the transgender phenomenon.
Also, some social media users decided to take a swipe at the actor using his sexuality, which has been a controversial subject for years.
