#BBNaija: Post Mercy-and-Tacha Fight, and Tacha Fans Are Dragging In Lesbianism As A Smear Tactic Against Mercy

When all fails, villainize homosexuality. It is a formula that almost always works for Nigerians. Following the animosity that boiled over into a fight between Big Brother housemates Tacha and Mercy – which culminated into the disqualification of Tacha – the fans took to the social media to jubilate and tear down. While there has been a majority of exultation over Tacha’s misfortunes, the much-villainized housemate’s fans were not in short supply of ways to fight back against the national antagonism.

And one of such ways apparently was to introduce Exhibit A of Mercy’s supposed lesbianism: the kiss she shared with another female housemate.

Because to kiss a girl is just as evil and as comparable as whatever bad behavior Tacha was known for in the House.

Fortunately, Twitter was not about to let this gaslighting fly.

    “When all fails, villianize” This!
    They must still be shocked at how that plot failed woefully.

    My own is that we identify these profiles. They mustn’t hold public offices in this country. They will raise a lot of dust to hide their misdeeds

    Nonsense and ingredients. Even though I liked Tacha, I just knew she deserved the disqualification. Using lesbianism to drag Mercy is just low
