Ghanaian broadcaster Bridget Otoo has punched sports journalist Michael Oti-Adjei of Media General over a comment she made about celebrities campaigning against John Dumelo.
Bridget Otoo wrote on Twitter that celebrities who went to the Ayawaso West Wuoguon constituency to campaign against actor John Dumelo were “daft.”
In a response to that, Michael Oti-Adjei said it was illogical for Bridget Otoo that celebrities need to support other celebrities and not have preferences.
“Everybody is free to pick a side and propagate that publicly but other actors clearly are not supposed to because their colleague is contesting in the particular race. This logic I don’t understand. Must have been why every journalist backed Oppong Nkrumah,” he wrote.
This comment which rubbed Bridget Otoo the wrong way dared Oti-Adjei to mention her in his comment if he is not a hypocrite. She described the comment as “nonsense” and later tweeted at Oti-Adjei with strong words.
She first wrote: Tag me next time and stop this hypocrisy. Such nonsense. Is that what I said? Can you not read?
She also tweeted: .”@OtiAdjei next time tag me! Please, by all means, you continuously malign me on this app and I look away. I won’t take this from you. You are no better than me, not in qualification, education or even in this profession. Please I’m ready for you. So keep it coming.”
Bridget has since received backlash from a lot of people for her gesture.
