Journalist, Sandra Ezekwesili has condemned singer, Paul Okoye alias Rudeboy for going shirtless in his #EndSARS campaign video.Rudeboy had earlier shared a shirtless video where he spoke against police brutality and called for an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The TV broadcaster then said the fact he could go shirtless to pass a message is an indication of male privilege.
For her, if it were a lady who posted a shirtless video, she would have been condemned, but because it is a male, no one seems to care.
She tweeted… “Male privilege is making a viral shirtless video and having everyone pay attention only to your message.”
