Actress Stella Damasus posted a message on Instagram yesterday wishing her partner Daniel Ademinokan’s son, David, a happy 9th birthday. The message simply read “Happy birthday boo. Too much love from us all”
According to a lot of comments under the post, her followers felt that the message was inappropriate and insensitive to the fact that Daniel was not spending his birthday with his mother, Doris Simeon, who used to be married to Daniel Ademinokan.
Responding to the comments today, Stella posted on Instagram, alongside a photo of herself and Daniel:
With all the things that are happening in the world, with all the recession people are complaining about, with all the people who are dying everyday, with all the injustice in the world, this right here is what some people have decided to dwell on. Funny how the same issue has given some people high blood pressure for the past 4 years. Funny how the same people cannot realize that regardless of what they say behind their phones, nothing has changed. In fact it’s getting better and stronger. Funny how wishing an amazing young man happy birthday just to celebrate him will cause people to bring out the ugliness in their hearts and their hatred for humanity. So sad that this wonderful young man will look at comments under his birthday picture and instead of the smiles that should appear on his face, he is extremely saddened at the fact that adults can be so terrible. So sad that the things he is taught never to do to others by adults are being done by adults. So sad that people cannot hold off their evil thoughts and words just for one day to celebrate the same person they claim to be looking out for. Everyone has their own life to live. Do you and let me do me and allow God who knows what man can never know, be the judge. Words from internet trolls and bullies can NEVER bring me or my family down. I have been through much worse and I am STILL STANDING. Ask about me. #nuffsaid
