TV and Radio presenter Anita Nderu has now responded after being bashed online, for the recently uploaded video in her online cooking show, The Overdressed Cook.
Anita Nderu was the trending topic all over the internet on Thursday, as she got Kenyans reacting to her latest video posted on her Instagram account, with some bashing her for promoting “gay” as he had hosted two LGBT men on the show.
Taking to her Instagram account, the renown radio queen has stated that she will never be bullied into silence because human beings have the right to refuse to be defined by what other people think about them, but rather be loved and celebrated in their differences and diversities.
“….Also, I will never be bullied into silence. As human beings, we have the right to refuse to be defined by what other people think rather we must define ourselves. As people we should celebrate our differences, encourage authenticity & wonder at the diversity of humanity. We all have a right to love and be loved however & whenever #Propride #ProLGBTQ,” she posted.
She also went on to thank her two guests whom she said are the “coolest guys ever” and she had fun shooting the episode with them.
“We were meant to make Eggs Benedict on this edition. We did eventually 😂 but mostly we had the most fun shooting our #PrideMonth episode in what every overdressed cook would wear PJ’s wise! @i am romeothebossy& @victor maish Thank you so so much for being the coolest guests EVER! I had the most fun shooting this episode❤️🏳️🌈 I hope you did too❤️” Anita Nderu said in her post.
The viral video caused an uproar from citizens, such that Fresh Fri manufacturers Karibu Pwani Life Company had to distance themselves from the video, stating that they had not endorsed Anita Nderu. Many, however, so this was a PR move after the backlash, as the same cooking oil from the company has always been seen in other videos ‘strategically placed’.
