Genevieve Nnaji slams Deyemi Okanlawon for making a joke of the WSW challenge

Genevieve Nnaji has slammed Deyemi Okanlawon for making a joke of the Women Supporting Women Challenge created to stop women from hating and fighting each other.

The movement which has gotten support from female celebrities also got strange support from Deyemi Okanlawon who as a man shouldn't be affiliated with it.

The actor shared pictures of male celebrities photoshopped to look like women and stated that they have accepted the challenge not to hate other women.

This didn't sit well with Genevieve Nnaji who slammed the actor for making a joke of the movement which he doesn't understand.

"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 wrote.
