Actress Funke Adesiyan has said she has no regret criticising fellow actress, Omotola Jalade, for wearing a cropped top to a public event recently.
Funke, who was angry at those who criticised her buddy and colleague, Bimbo Thomas, who posted a picture where she wore a swimsuit on the social media, said it was irrational of the people who made nasty comments concerning what Bimbo wore.
“I stand by what I said. People should stop being hypocritical. I don’t see anything wrong with anybody wearing a swimsuit at a beach; do you expect the person to wearagbada? Omotola is my senior colleague whom I respect a lot. She is pretty and very strong. But this is my opinion. If people want to criticise somebody for wearing a swimsuit to a beach, they might as well criticise Omotola, a mother of four, for wearing a cropped top to a public event. It is my opinion. I didn’t intend to insult her person or personality, I just expressed an opinion,” Funke said.
On whether she didn’t care if Omotola felt bad that she called her out on social media, Funke said, “She has not told me that she feels bad about what I wrote. I don’t see why anybody should cry more than the bereaved. It wasn’t out of malice that I said what I said and of course, I am not jealous of her. I can never be jealous of anybody.”
Funke insisted she wasn’t defending Bimbo because she is her friend but because, “I can’t stand injustice. You don’t have to be my friend for me to speak up for you.”
