Iwobi’s only crime is representing Nigeria, Stop cyberbullying him – Comedian AY

Nigerian comic actor, Ayo Makun, popularly known as Comedian AY, has appealed to Super Eagles fans to stop cyber-bullying Alex Iwobi.

AY took to his Instagram page to make the appeal as a result of the heavy backlash Iwobi faced following Nigeria’s failure to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

The comedian asked Nigerians to cease the cyber bullying towards the 27-year-old midfielder as his only crime was to come and represent his fatherland.

Bullying Iwobi

Recall that the Fulham star recently deleted all the pictures and videos he put up on his official Instagram page except one, after he received most of the blame for his team’s loss in the AFCON finals.

AY said there is a need for fans of the Nigerian football team to think beyond personal interests and look at the negative effects of their ‘evil’ actions.

He said; “Anyone can become a victim of cyberbullying. Malicious information posted on the internet can spread far and wide at an instant, and it is always difficult to be deleted completely. The immediacy of the spread makes it hard for victims to defend themselves or take precautions. The harm caused by cyberbullying is always ignored by computer or mobile phone users.

“It is so sad to see how you all have exhibited various forms of cyberbullying on a young man whose only crime was to come and represent his father land. Tomorrow, you all will still be wondering why the likes of Saka and others are never going to play for Nigeria?

“It’s time to think beyond your personal interests and look at the negative effects of your evil actions. Let’s help promote a culture of care and respect on the internet and prevent cyberbullying”.
