Goldie Hawn & President Goodluck Jonathan - January 2014 - BellaNaija 0

Goldie Hawn won’t be smiling with President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan when next she meets him.

The American actress and activist came under fire on Saturday 25th January 2014 after posting a photo on Twitter about meeting GEJ at the World Economic Forum during an interview with HuffPost Live.

Goldie Hawn & President Goodluck Jonathan - January 2014 - BellaNaija 01

Goldie who is also the mother of actress Kate Hudson, revealed to Huffington Post that the photo “had every right to cause an uproar.” She then revealed she “had no idea” about the same sex bill in Nigeria, while also noting she “literally hadn’t looked at the news”.

Goldie Hawn later deleted the tweet.

It’s “no excuse” she explains of her action and she’s “absolutely appalled” about GEJ’s anti-gay views.

She also stated that his views are very-far based and full of hatred.

It breaks my heart because I have my own personal feelings about this. This is man’s inhumanity to man of the first order. It’s more than ridiculous, it’s barbaric.” she continued to say.

Goldie later told the LGBT community and informed them that they are moving in the “right direction”.

    the LGBT lobby is still trying to break Nigeria.

    • Manola January 27, 2014 at 1:06 am

      The LGBT lobby does not need to break a broken state like Nigeria , a land so rish that 90 % of it’s people live in poverty .

    China doesn’t born more than one child from the same parents, USA doesn’t marry more than two wive at a time because of human laws, but we do all this in 9ja. So to marry and born two is not part of human right? Animals in the bush doesn’t meet the sex, that means that animals are wiser than all these gays!!!. GAYS; If ur parents were gays, who will give birth to you?

      Your post reeks of illiteracy.

      • Ada Nnewi January 27, 2014 at 8:31 am

        Illiteracy on a massive scale….

      • nene January 27, 2014 at 9:24 am

        which illiteracy biko? the commenter is talking sense. abi u are gay? mschew

      • whocares January 27, 2014 at 10:35 am

        @nene.. You ever heard that saying if you have nothing nice to say be quiet, let me change it to if you have nothing sensible to contribute, please, please step away from your keyboard. Its alright to agree with the drivel Mr or Mrs Martins said that is your business.. but which one is “are you gay”? must we all be gay to know what is right from wrong and condemn it? Ahhh I cant.

    • madamNk January 28, 2014 at 12:23 pm

      sigh, this is why people need to be literate… “doesn’t born” indeed

  • Onye January 27, 2014 at 2:05 am

    @martins. I’ve seen gay animals before o!. It’s catching down to them as well. To be honest. I like Goldie Hawn’s apology.

  • Oyin January 27, 2014 at 6:55 am

    These gays are treated like god. Even racists don’t apologize that much. It’s just interesting how they are literally forcing it down ur throat by marrying gays at the Grammys. America just want to bully naija into their evilness. We have our own issues to deal with, let’s focus on that. Those northerners who are practicing homosexuality, the big politicians and businessmen many if them are gay, doing anal sex while have wife and kids at home. So, the law needs to apply to those Hausas, northern people from Kano, Yola, Minna, etc America face ur business.,

    I see you dame Patience :)

  • Teris January 27, 2014 at 9:01 am

    omg!! what!!! so, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has been reduced to being someone to randomly disrespect and dismiss and delete on twitter!!

    that has-been thinks it’s okay to disrespect our country on account of the opinion of her fans – fan(atic)s who are clearly as unaware of the weighted responsibility of governance and political alliances as her disrespectful, dumb ass is? i don’t blame her. se it’s because our president no get protocol officer to tell him who he shud be public with!

    artists with greater clout and social awareness would either dodge a public scene or recognise that as the pic has been taken already, publicly identify with whatsoever opinion he/she leans towards while still being gracious enough to recognise the previlige of meeting an individual/institution representing the hopes of a great many innocents and otherwise.

    i am vexing.

    • whocares January 27, 2014 at 10:39 am

      Your first statement right here is the problem with Nigeria, and I will address only that as I simply do not understand anything else you have written.. Presidents everywhere are criticised, scrutinised, and even disrespected sometimes by ordinary citizens and other members of parliament or government as the case may be. Our president should not be different, and is not different. Is he God that people cannot speak out against him on twitter or anywhere else? Last I checked Nigeria was a democratic government, and we had freedom of speech? or maybe not..

      • Teris January 27, 2014 at 2:40 pm

        who said anything about the pres being above criticism?
        she took a pic with him…meaning she was honoured to meet the Nig. Pres.
        then cos some homo cried out, she decided to delete the pic.
        to me, that is pretty insulting, she’s pretty dumb and u’re pretty slow.

      • whocares January 27, 2014 at 5:10 pm

        @ Teris… *sigh*. I make it a point to never respond to people who feel the need to insult in their comments. If you cannot say what you have to say without the insults, then I start to judge your intellectual capacity, and I have to say, you are coming up short at the moment.. That said, it is still the same thing. She is ashamed to be associated with him is why the picture got taken down. How is that insulting.. again are people not allowed to have their opinion on certain issues especially one as controversial as this? And her action was indeed a criticism of the Nigerian government, and the draconian law that was passed so you might not have expressly used the word criticism, but that is what it comes to.. Yes she might have tried to be PC about her association or disassociation with him, but to what purpose? I don’t see how I can make this any clearer to you, so I will leave you to it.

  • Me Full Ground January 27, 2014 at 9:40 am

    Goldie who? Dumb head of the highest order who wants to be socially and politically correct. No matter what they say, we have a right to our own culture and religious view. We will only accept what we thinks is right and not the satanic gay verses the west is quoting. For those who still hold the view that people are born gay or grow into being gay, they should Sunday Sun of 26th January, 2014 to know how people are recruited. The Nigerian homosexual club are in either for occultic purposes or recruited through financial and other inducements or brainwashed by western media.

    • slice January 27, 2014 at 10:59 pm

      i think there’s some misunderstanding here. she took a picture with him and called him a wonderful president. then she was informed by those she supports about a cause that is very dear to her heart, that the guy she just hailed is actually on the other side or her argument and is actually arresting the people she supports. I’m not sure what else she was supposed to do. i mean whether you agree with gay rights or not, it goes without saying that you don’t want to be hailing somebody who’s arresting people for doing something you’ve been very vocal about their right to do. She didn’t insult the guy (like you just insulted. she just said the cause is dear to her heart and she believes it’s a human rights issue).

      As for this argument of recruiting gay prostitutes, would you suggest that hetero sex is abnormal bc there are hetero prostitutes?

      • Me Full Ground January 29, 2014 at 3:20 am

        @the point is that the guy in the Sunday Sun interview stated that he was a normal heterosexual man before he was induced and recruited into the gay club and now he is fully gay with no heterosexual feelings. He knows that being gay is not normal for him So it defeats the “born-gay” and “grow-into-gay” theories being used to brainwash people.

  • John January 27, 2014 at 10:58 am

    The comments here are sooo strange…so people still use this dumb argument of if your parents were gay, would you be born and animals are not gay? Nigeria’s problem is deep rooted and sadly solution ain’t available yet.

  • Gogo January 27, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    @John, whose are strange in this context? If being gay is normal and not strange why has it taken the homosexuals so many centuries to come out of their closet? Why sponsor so many false research programmes to work from answer to question? Why is it not the natural way to conceive and bear children? Why resort to cheap propaganda and negative labelling of anti-gay persons to force the abomination on humans who are normal? Why employ cheap economic blackmail against third world countries to force acceptance of an alien satanic practice? Why is the western world promoting gay rights averse to rights of polygamists? Would the western protagonist also support human rights to have sex with their animals? Would the west also welcome those who are inclined incestuous relationships? No matter how much the west try to paint homosexuality as natural or inborn, they have not been able to identify the “gene”. Be rest assured that all the old empires that collapsed, you can trace their collapse to moral decadence and America and the western world are on the downward spiral just like the former Roman empire. Abomination is what it is and not any other name. Be wise

  • Charis January 27, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    Oh please john, give your own preferable argument or mute ur fingers. As much as I’m not perturbed bout this homosexual issue, because its not surprising (gays have always been in existence; I mean what do you expect in a world of sin?) what the world is turning into ( as a Christian I clearly see in the scripture what is to be expected), I think its ridiculous what this woman did. See you cannot force everyone to uproot their belief to embrace yours, unfortunately the world isn’t mechanized in that way. People compare this with racism, question; aren’t there breathing racist still? Aren’t there racist countries still? You say the west brought us religion, question; aren’t there breathing traditionalist in Africa ( Nigeria in particular), point is the world might never accept homosexualism as a natural human relation .. Unfortunately/fortunately, my opinion might not be favourable to the LGBT community because I’m a Christian, but that won’t stop me from acting in love (God’s love) towards them. One last point, you all scream the God we believe in is love and we ought to show love but isn’t God TRUTH also? Why do u reject truth and expect to embrace love? Isn’t that mockery?

  • Phillip Raney January 27, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    Nothing more than savages. They have not evolved as humans. What’s next for them bringing back head hunting, witch doctors, and cannibalism. They

  • Me Full Ground January 28, 2014 at 7:08 am

    @Charis, God bless you. The Bible says that those who reject truth shall perish. Of course they are children of their father, the devil who is the father of lies and teaches his children to reject truth and embrace lies to their destruction.

  • OB January 28, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    From a few of the comments i’ve read here, its clear that this country is in dire need of education. PEOPLE!!! the right to ones individuality/beliefs is sacred. Do you agree? If you don’t stop reading now, and go and makeout with a transformer. Ifyou do, then look at this way; Goldie Hawn has chosen (her right) not to associate/publicly identify with the President of Nigeria because of the aw passed in Nigeria. THats a perfectly normal reaction. it is not an insult to the country as some are calling it. in the US, several people(including billionaire Donald Trump) asked for Barack Obama to show them his birth certificate because they said he was in fact not American. Which of these two do you believe is an insult? I ‘m a Nigerian, and i will never share a picture of myself and “your” president because i believe that he is a failure and a hack that should never have been allowed into power in the first place. If I can say that, why cant GH take down a picture?

    people are quoting religious scripture etc when discussing this issue, and you don’t realize the glaring mistakes in your judgments. First, WE/YOU are not the one meant to judge are you? Secondly, if you do believe that there is a God, and he is all powerful, why not leave the LGB community to him? In your homophobic rage, you forget that peoples sexuality does not make them a burden to society, whereas we have a “lawmaker” that is not only a pedophile, he also stated that Islamic law is of higher concern to him than Nigerian law.These are the sort of poeple making Laws for your country, where there is no electricity, shortage of decent hospitals, bad roads, no safety for citizens, yet, you beleive that this law is what we need right now?!?! People you are being deceived. This is very similar to the indecent public dressing law discussed a few years ago. It fools the ppopulace into thinking that the lawmakers are indeed fighting to save our morality, while they loot the country dry. My people, you are being distracted, all cosmetic/non-issue laws like this should be rejected in totality, as they draw attention away from what is really happening. Stop being fooled, stop arguing onnon-issues. We have real problems as a country yet non are addressed. Look at the PIB for example. It is still being discussed, and may very well never pass. But a law on sexuality simply glides through? WAKE UP!!!

  • rol January 30, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    wake up. all these talk of inborn gay or not are absolute nonsense. no man is born gay. we are drawn into this practice by our own lust. However gay or lesbianism are not part of our African culture. This are the signs of the end time.
