Nelson had commented: “Sex for grades! Sex for jobs! Sex for everything in our part of the world! Your brains don’t matter here. It’s the covered parts they want, oh wait, these parts aren’t covered anymore…it’s free on social media. Will it ever change?”
Her comment attracted virulent comments on Twitter .

Yvonne Nelson. Youuu that ties towels in your movies and take them off is trying to slut shame?? Like you literally do things our society deems as "immoral"
You're here performing for the same men that wouldn't even batte an eye in calling you an "ashawo" in seconds.

Surely Yvonne Nelson isn’t trying to shame women for not fully covering their bodies. Surely she can’t be. My eyes must be paining me

I’m wondering how Yvonne Nelson thought his made sense cause If we are staying on topic, When Kemi went to see Boniface, she was fully clothed but he still harassed her. When is it gonna sink in that what you wear isn’t a determinant for assault & rape. This is victim blaming https://t.co/wh7tv2F0o8
