“It was sarcasm. I spoke the truth many of them implied I meant” – Twitter User Says after he told Michelle Obama “Your mates are holding their male children, you are there holding dogs”



A Twitter user @LadiSpeaks has apologised for a tweet he said, meant to be sarcastic but was misunderstood.

LadiSpeaks quoted a Tweet from @FLOTUS which had Michelle Obama‘s photo with their two dogs, thanking everyone for their wishes on her birthday yesterday.

LadiSpeaks quoted the tweet and said:

He came under fire from Twitter NG, as many persons described him as being sexist.

LadiSpeaks, before apologising, quoted a series of tweets, saying that he only tried to tweet with sarcasm, the truth many Nigerians implied he meant.

He afterwards, tendered his apology.

He has since deleted the tweet.

    Out of the Abundance of the heart…the mouth speaks…

    This guy is a disgrace. I cant believe someone in his right sense will hold a smartphone to type that in 2017.

    Male or Female.. the prayer is we should live long enough to have good children..regardless of the gender…

    This just shows how backward some people are.

      He also defended his comment is his initial replies. Only after getting heat did he say it was sarcasm. See the ugly idiot, living with a backward mentality. Now he’s come to defend and advocate for females. This one is the type that his wife will have 6 girls and he’ll blame it on her. Waste of space!

    Obviously a stupid useless NIGERIAN made that statement. The only COUNTRY OBSESSED with MALE CHILDREN


    now you want to apologise. Americans and many other better african country unlike yours are not so bent on that MALE CHILD NONSENSE. GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULL and DONT DISPLAY SUCH NONSENSE AGAIN ON SOCIAL MEDIA

    BN, you posted my comment and then deleted it just because it didn’t pander to the useless “BN is class”, “BN is for the elite” rhetoric you have made some of your readers believe?
    My comment contained ABSOLUTELY NO OUNCE of foul language, advertising, harassment or trolling. I wasn’t inciting violence, being racist or anything of thatt nature.
    So please tell me, why did you delete??
    How dare you silence me??!
    Shame on you.
    As for that f*#%ing cuck of a moderator feeling all tough and powerful, keep up with your tyranny. I hope it makes you feel good.
    Maybe you will learn to accept criticism one day and get your head out of each other’s a***s.
    Maybe you could have retained some dignity by not posting at all, but noooooo, you decided to post and then delete.
    If you like delete my comment again after posting.
    Later you will come here and report celebrities who do “Post & Delete”. Hypocrites.

      He is just a spineless goat, or why else would he discontinue a half-thought out tweet? IMHO, he is everything that he is claiming not to be.

    Thanks for publishing the apology part which many have refused to publish! It’s very encouraging to see this and I’ll like to encourage everyone out there to acknowledge the fact that male children are same as female children.

    • Not Even Surprised

      January 18, 2017 at 6:51 pm

      Lol!! Apology, after you have already said what you really wanted to say. Hopefully you learned a lesson but then again I think you’ve actually made yourself believe you were being sarcastic. Without female children, where would you as a male child be? #AlwaysThinkBeforeYouSpeak #AlwaysThinkBeforeYouPost

      You have serious guts coming on here. Thanks oshi wo? After saying nonsense you’re now looking for understanding and sympathy. You spoke extremely carelessly and I’m not buying your sarcasm BS! Because you now couldn’t take the heat, you’re now tendering one lame apology, Shame on you!

    • purplieciousbabe

      January 19, 2017 at 4:17 pm

      WOW! You said that about a woman and a first lady?
      This lady that has made strong impact around the world and supported her husband consistently without an iota of guilt tripping..
      She is raising wonderful girls that will go on to shape their generations in a positive way?
      Amazing woman that I look up to and I hope to read her biography on her success, class and likable traits.

      I admire her poise, grace and humility. I am proud of her and I am positively influenced by her. She taught us , age is nothing but a number! You can influence at any age. She taught us each opportunity should help us improve the world. She taught us we can remain humble despite position of power. She taught us one can be hardworking and have fun. She showed us women can support their husband with great sense of pride.and still hold their own.
      She encouraged us black women that we can be strong, fun, entitled, poise and graceful. She inspires us to be healthy and maintain positive outlook. She fought for the right of women and education all over the world.

      Needless to say, she has accomplished much more than you and possibly your generations to come – male and all.
      You cannot downgrade or insult or try to even make a silly joke on Michelle or any other woman.
      You do not have the RIGHT….
      I repeat you dont!!!!!!!

      Now, work on your self esteem and work on relevant projects that will positively impact you and your generations!
      Be happy I did not insult your intelligence.

    I pray some day sir, while waiting for that big job or contract or vying for an office in this country, someone does not pull this tweet out of “nowhere”. Don’t accuse your “village people” then, sir.

    I have know Israel @LadiSpeaks for well over 7 years. He can be many things but one thing i definitely know is that he is not A Sexist.

    Spoke with him earlier and from his explanation, it is very clear that the tweet about FLOTUS was done in humour.

    A deep look through his timeline would reveal he takes many things lightly and that FLOTUS tweet is just him being at his humorous mood

    Israel is someone that have very high regards for females folks and would never intentionally downgrade females.

    Glad he has taken responsibility, deleted the tweet and apologised. .

      No one has time to go through his time line. Header the comment. He should dance to the beat. Simple! Apology or not irs been made, saved, and you bet it will bite his arsenal one day. Having the effrontry to even tweet at the First Lady and say something So tasteless. He obviously expected it to just get lost in cyber space with no one taking notice. He must have a frozen brain.
      Defend him all you like. The damage had been done.

    He is an obvious idiot. And his imbecilous tweets are testimonial to how “he” that is a “male” child has ended up, without common sense. Ur sarcasm should become thunderous & strike yu to death!

    Mschewww him that is the almighty male child what has he accomplished?

    How many male children does he have?
    How many degrees does he have?
    Is he a millionaire?
    Perhaps he volunteers at homeless shelters and orphanages…
    Oh I know! he is the president of Nigeria…. No?
    What then? A whole Male child and he is just like every other female??

    Idiot, you planned the whole scenario. What do I do so I can trend and have a bit of traffic on my twitter feed? I know, let me say something concerning another country’s much beloved First Lady without making sense and feign ignorance later. Voila, mission accomplished. Intelligent fools like you are completely a “weist”( and I don’t intend it to be funny).

    Here, my people is the cause of our poverty! !!!!
    The irony is after having tons of children, hoping to get an almighty male child, we still end up looking up to the west to save us!!
    They don’t necessarily have more. They simply have enough kids they can manage because they want to LIVE their lives! !!
    Africa need to address population growth!
    Male child, indeed! !!!!

    I actually get the point he was trying to make. I’ve read so many comments on BN shaming women with no husband/kids. I’ve read similar comments to his original post on instagram shaming women with no male children.
    Was someone not shaming muna and offilli and comparing them to the footballer wife with kids (ojobo??)just recently and it got a lot of likes.

    Some in laws in Nigeria in this day and age are not okay till their son has a heir. He actually got people talking. To all the people still trying for a male child after child number 5 with the salary to only feed 3 people,i heard family planning is now free.
