The Yoruba film industry is supporting their colleague Toyin Abraham, who is facing backlash on social media after apprehending an individual who is harassing him.

The filmmaker is under heat for arresting one of her trolls and leaving him in police custody for some time.

One of the trolls had accused the actress of detaining his mother, a claim the actress denied by stating that the said mother refused to leave the police station due to her son’s arrest.

Following this, Nigerians had massively reported her to the streaming platform Netflix for her movies to be taken down. Netizens urged the streaming platform to boycott her movies and take a firm stance against her behavior.

Showing support for her, many of her colleagues took to their Instagram pages to defend the movie star.

Ibrahim Chatta penned a note to Toyin, appreciating her for speaking against bullying in all its forms.

“Hello Mrs Ajeyemi (Mummy Ire) @toyin_abraham
Thanks so much for speaking against bullying in all its forms, aspects and shapes. Olohun A wo omo re o, e ni ti o je gbi, kii ku gbi.
GOD gat u, and I love u wholeheartedly”.

Afeez Owo had reshared a post from Yinka Quadri where he urged all actors to unite and take a stance against bullying, noting how emotional blackmail is no joke.

Allwell Ademola, on her part, had noted the double standards on social media. She stated that sometimes she wonders why it is okay to bully celebrities, but when they react, they are being tagged as petty and bullies.

“This social media and double standards. Sometimes I just wonder, so it’s okay to lie, insult, abuse, and bully a celebrity, but if the celebrity reacts, she’s petty and a bully, Abi? Koboru

Everybody get blood, celeb or not. We can actually do better”.
