Naomi Campbell took to Twitter yesterday to address what’s going on in Nigeria. She asked President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the violence that is the Bright and promising future of Nigeria. She also used her platform to call for the end of SARS.

Buhari pretty much responded by killing more protestors because many were gunned down at the Lekki toll gate by Nigerian Forces, according to eyewitnesses.
Naomi received backlash today because she did a quick tweet and delete when she posted a picture of her in Vogue saying, “I pray for a silver lining. An ode to dream and the dreamers.
This tweet created many mix reactions. Also caught the attention of a young high profiled model.
Adesuwa Aighewi strongly lashed out at Naomi Campbell via Instagram Stories due to the supermodel’s tone deaf post on Twitter regarding the tragic situation going on in Nigeria, the country Adesuwa’s father is from and in which she grew up as well.
Welp Adesuwa dragging Naomi. That’s what she gets. People have had enough. pic.twitter.com/mr6LGnswlH

After Aighewi called her out publicly, Campbell hopped on Instagram live to talk about what’s going in Nigeria. She even shedded a few tears while being on IG live.

I’ve seen a lot of people from Nigeria bashing Naomi Campbell for a post she made prior, but her entire career @NaomiCampbell has been traveling continent to continent doing charitable work, educating, building & helping humanity. #EndSARS pic.twitter.com/jSeEGZjl7S

Naomi Campbell has been accused of child trafficking. Didn't defend herself.
Made an insensitive post about the #endsars protest. Recieved backlash.
Came on IG live to cry about it.
IS THIS MADNESS?
