Empress Njamah took to her Instagram page to note that the women are ones bringing violent on themselves. According to the actress, sometimes the women torment men mentally, adding that women should learn to help men manage their anger. Here’s what she wrote:
“There are men who are more beaten up emotionally than the women they beat up physically. Some women are headstrong and can traumatise their men mentally that they don’t know when they hit in anger.
“A man might have experienced one or two things growing up. These men need us to be supportive. Women should help these men control their anger.
“Stop getting advice from single women, don’t let them mislead you, instead read books…men are babies, they wanted to be treated like babies and that is why some go on to cheat when their wives are frustrating them.”
While Empress was busy dishing out her thoughts, the Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim rebuked the statement quote:
“KARMA IS A BITCH! When it comes barking up your own tree or in your family; please preach your wisdom that time… #whatApity and we call ourselves celebrities!
Ibrahim who also took to her Instagram page to mouth lash her colleague with the following statement:
“When people decide to sit and form advisers they should think twice before talking honestly. What’s the meaning of “a man hits a woman it’s called domestic violence and when a woman hits a man it’s called what?”
“MADAM, it’s the same domestic violence either ways and what we have been preaching since day one is the fact that no one should get to the point of hitting another being in the name of anger or rage!
“Violence is WRONG! There is no excuse! Violence should NEVER EVER BE THE OPTION OR CHOICE!!! There is NO REASON IN THE WORLD FOR A MAN OR WOMAN TO GET PHYSICAL ON ANOTHER Person!
“Is it the woman’s fault that some guy couldn’t control his urge? Would you also sit and advise that everyone should pick up guns and go to war because they were offended by another country? #sayNotodomesticviolence against women or men! We preach against it! VIOLENCE SHOULD NEVER BE THE END RESULT!”
