Following the penalty meted out to American actor Will Smith, Nollywood actress Ruth Kadiri has been abused on social media.
The Academy Awards, which oversees the Oscars, announced Thursday night that the actor would be forbidden from attending any Oscar or Academy event for the next ten years.
This comes only two weeks after he slapped comedian Chris Rock for making fun of his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, on stage.
Many people have accused the actress and Mercy Johnson of supporting the actor’s acts after the verdict was handed down.
Following the incident, Ruth Kadiri Nzerika advised men who are unable to openly defend their wives to avoid marrying.
Drumming support for him, Ruth warned men not to walk down the aisle if they can’t defend their woman publicly.
Any man that cannot defend his wife like this should not marry her. Go and advice the police about brutality. Go and advice Puttin about war. Nobody should stress me. If you talk anyhow, you collect”.
Going by her statement, Nigerians have called on her to weigh in on the punishment meted on him.
