Television Continental (TVC) presenter, Morayo Afolabi-Brown, has taken time to clear the air on a statement she made on-air, which has generated intense criticism especially on the social media.
The controversy originated from her comment to wit that though she had good trust in her husband but that she would not allow him to bathe their daughter.
The Your View co-host took to her Instagram handle to address the issue and clear the air stating that her husband is not a paedophile.
She added that he is a very responsible man and would not do anything to hurt any of his children.
Morayo had noted that coming on social media to clarify statements she made on-air is not something she likes doing but was compelled to react to this particular one.
She had written on Instagram that “I will normally not do this but I feel I should respond. It’s painful that people think I would in any way suggest that my husband is a ‘potential abuser’. Sad.
“The truth is that the show allows us to state varied views which should be respected and understood. So understand this, there are women who have used their life to vouch that their husbands would never abuse their daughters yet we see it happen.”
While saying that the social space ought to be relaxed so that victims of sexual abuses could be emboldened to speak up no matter the social status of the abusers.
She wrote “Let’s make it easy for those women to speak up. Let’s make it easy for girls to speak up about their abusers, even if it’s their father!”
Morayo had on the show she co-hosts said yesterday that “I absolutely trust my husband but I won’t take chances and have him bathe my daughter, because whether we like it or not, there is something flying in the air these days that is encouraging imbalance and immoralities”.
Her statement generated a lot of criticism from people who thought she indirectly disrespected her husband and called him a paedophile.
