Nollywood Actress Monalisa Chinda says women are to blame for 50% of domestic violence cases, because they provoke their men to with their “Okra Mouth”
I’m very surprised…scratch that…I am SHOCKED that Nollywood actress Monalisa Chinda would say that women provoke their men into beating them!
I am stunned because Monalisa is a victim of domestic violence herself, she has been open about the physical abuse she received at the hands of her first husband.
The actress and mom of one who got married to her second husband – Tonye Coker, last year, recently appeared on “The Other News” a show hosted by Okey Bakassi on Channels TV to speak against domestic violence.
While on the show Chinda dropped this bomb,
As much as I detest all forms of violence against women and men, women should quit provoking their man into punches and slaps and all kinds of things. I always research when I hear fresh stories about domestic violence. Ofcourse this is close to my heart. Half the time, it is the women. “God just gave us this running Okra mouth. We talk alot. Women, don’t fight with people who are stronger than you.”
Wow! Women have Okra mouth? Women provoke their men?
As an anti domestic violence advocate I would like to believe that Monalisa knows about the statistics that at least 1 in 3 women globally, will experience some form of domestic violence in their life and 38% of murders perpetrated against women globally are committed by male intimate partners.
Is she for real saying this? On a public platform?
This is the reason why men will continue to feel justified about physically assaulting their partners. I am so disappointed in her.
DO YOU AGREE WITH MONALISA THAT WOMEN ARE TO BLAME FOR 50% OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CASES?
