Most cyberbullies are cowards –Eniola Badmus

By  | 

Many years ago, bullies were usually found in schools and sometimes in offices. But these days, because of the anonymity provided by the Internet, aggressors can be found on virtually all social media sites and blogs. And the victims of bullies are no longer nerds alone as even the ‘cool kids’ have to contend with them. Celebrities are often bashed by trolls who practically live on their social media accounts and vent acerbic words on them. But some of these stars have now developed thick skins and they no longer get bothered by the antics of cyberbullies.

Popular comic actress, Eniola Badmus told Sunday Scoop how she deals with this social nuisance. “I am very comfortable in my own skin and I love myself. I don’t even bother reading comments because I know that some people are just naturally bitter and they actually need help. Many of the people you see who are so full of anger online actually deserve our pity. So whenever I come across such people, I don’t even argue with them or reply. I just ‘jump and pass’ and say a prayer for them. Besides, many of these people cannot even utter half of what they say online if they come face-to-face with you; they are just cowards,” she said.

Also speaking on the recent demise of her dad, Badmus said, “It is always sad losing a loved one. But the only consolation is that the person lived a fulfilled life and I will always do whatever I can to keep his memory alive.”
