The last time Kim Kardashian trended in Nigeria was when she made her first visit to the country for Darey’s valentine concert in February. A month later, she’s burning up the social trend list in Nigeria over a ‘tweet’ which seemed to have erupted a lot of discomfort among Nigerians.
How dangerous can 140 characters be? Well, when Kim K allegedly tweeted that ‘Nigeria is such a disgusting country. I couldn’t wait to leave. lol Scott said their women look like apes and I agree’.
Although the tweet was fake, ‘photoshopped’ by a certain @chuckicheese, it went viral in minutes with Nigerians reacting- expectedly – negatively to it. The scenario became that serious and some blogs actually fell for the expensive joke.
‘Funniest s**t, I ALWAYS use @BET for my fake retweets but people still fall for it‘, @chuckicheese wrote on his Twitter last night.
Nigerian rapper 2shotz was one of the many Nigerians who also fell for it. ‘F**k kim kardarshian…..how wld she say such about naija girls?‘, he wrote on his Twitter page.
Another fake tweet seemed to have convinced Nigerians that it was all a prank. ‘I wld av replied Nigerians but i don’t want to say anything and my oga at the top would say another thing‘, the second fake tweet read, borrowing from the recent ‘Oga at the top’ parodies.
Kim K however didn’t seem fazed, exchanging pleasant tweets with her sister all through the time she was trending in Nigeria
