- Trolls drag Toke Makinwa
- Toke Makinwa slammed for 'transaction sex' tweet
OAP, Toke Makinwa on blast for making an objectifying tweet.
Social media users put media personality and YouTuber, Toke Makinwa on blast after she made a tweet that came off to many as an objectification of women.
This started from the trending ‘Stingy Men Association of Nigeria (SWAN)’ making rounds on social media that had some men pledging their allegiance to the ‘unwanted men‘ group by solemnly promising not to spend on women. However, it was established to be a joke.
In the spirit of banter, Toke Makinwa decided to make her own tweet but this time she was clamouring for the creation of a female version of the SWAN called the #Close Legs Association’. She tweeted ,
“This stingy men association na wa ooo… Abeg where can I sign up for Close legs association #Wemoveee”
While her intentions for this tweet were not stated, twitter users wasted no time in coming for Toke because they believed that her tweets portrayed women as sex objects who would withdraw sex when money was taken out of the equation.
See some reactions to her post below;
“@FEMMY466 – This is so insulting to women tbh but if person talk now, they’ll remind me that I’m broke”
“@ChidiegwuOkoye – She may think it’s cruise but she’s just objectifying women.“
“@jagganiyu – So if you’re given money then you’ll open your legs? The jokes write themselves. Later you’ll say you’re a feminist“
“@Zorracs – This is a very wrong narrative to push. Remove sex from the equation, women bring alot to the table. Stop reinforcing what your mindset is all about”
