    What amazed me the most when the initial story broke, was Nigerians like Tonto Dickhead that jumped on this bullshit showing support. Like they knew who this guy was personally. Who goes around with a rope and bleach in -20 degree weather in South side Chicago looking for who to beat up/lynch? And it’s easier for a white man to be beaten up in south side Chicago than for a black man. Fuck outta here, if you don’t know shit about shit, then Shut the fuck up. No go face your mounting Nigeria problems. Go Vote and Make Nigeria Great again. Keep your nose outta American celebrities issue. Stupid ass fake ass social justice crusaders. I bet she didn’t jump on the numerous social injustices happening in Nigeria.

    He is just so stupid! Why throw away your career like that? To what end? Now he has a criminal record, will probably lose his job, be ostracized from his lgbtq…whatever community, grossly disliked by the black community and has literally opened himself up to be a victim of genuine hate crime because of this very stupid act. Im so confused, so he just woke up one morning and thought to do that? Just watch, he will soon say he has mental issues and depression…
