After proposing for a ban on babies travelling on planes because of their annoyingly loud attitudes, Big Brother Naija season 6 finalist Angel Smith responded to critics.
Recall that Angel urged a ban to prevent babies from boarding flights in a tweet on the noisy behavior of babies on flights.
“They need to ban babies/toddlers from being able to board flights. Leave those noisy coco felons at home.”
Angel’s comment sparked a backlash online as many called her out for referring to babies as felons and made fun of her for lacking maternal instincts.
Angel Smith clarified her remarks regarding the ban on babies travelling on airplanes in response to the trolls, saying it was merely a joke.
She also brought up a few celebrities who had criticised her for her post, saying she is the kind of person who would not remain silent if they treated her with contempt.
In her words;
“Sometimes I just have to laugh at y’all. You would think after I called them coco felons, it would have been given away as a joke, but the country is hard, I guess, bite your lips and talk your shit.
“You guys love to pick a token person to bully, and you self-righteous public figures will pile on because you want to appeal to the public and be a good person so badly. I have nothing but respect for people in the industry, but please don’t look for my mouth, thank you.
“It was obviously a joke, I said Coco felons for a reason, leave me alone and stop being agbayas.
“When they are dragging public figures, younger and older you don’t see me under blogs giving my opinion, it’s called having respect. Learn some because I am a really quiet person, all I do is post my pictures, make jokes and mind my business. Please leave me alone because if I start, they will spin it and say I’m the villain because it’s so convenient to pick on me because I’m the odd one out in this country. Please leave me alone.”
