Mercy Eke, a popular reality TV actress, has said that the majority of the women who harass her online genuinely want to be like her.
In a recent interview with media personality Taymesan, the BBNaija star mentioned this in regards to the bad remarks and criticisms she’s experienced while being in the spotlight.
The hurtful comments bother her because she is human, with blood coursing through her veins, and she feels compelled to defend herself at times.
“Sometimes it does (get to me) because I am human, especially when lies are told about me, and I cannot defend myself. Sometimes, I just wallow in anger and wish I can say things as they are with proof. The trolling (cyber bullying) hurts me most times because they say horrible things to me.”
“They said I have been married, that I have been pregnant. At this stage of my life, I have to get it right. I am a lover girl and I give love.”
She added that she’s not intimidated by those who criticize her ‘igbotic’ accent because most Nigerian girls also have terrible accents.
“I don’t think anyone can intimidate me. Aside from the proper London girls, most of these girls have horrible accents. I attract people that like the real me. I have nothing to hide, and there is nothing to be intimidated by. I am doing pretty well, and many of the girls (that criticise me) want to be me. They want to be in my circle,” she said
