A Nigerian man has received backlash over the video of his Edo parent’s shocking reaction after seeing a washing machine in the UK for the first time.

Sharing on the microblogging platform, X, a tweep identified as @ChuksEricE disclosed that the young man was doing his laundry when his parents entered the kitchen with an electrified look.

The young man recorded his parents smiling sheepishly at the washing machine as they observed the technological advancement. His father who was squatting, suddenly, fell on the floor to watch the machine spinning the clothes without manpower.

Apparently, his parents hailed from a small village in Edo state and hadn’t seen a washing machine prior to their visit to the UK. The young man exclaimed that his dad and mum had just disappointed him with their expression.

Speaking in their Edo dialect, the father mentioned that Western manufacturers no longer want the people to undergo manual labour.

The video has triggered several negative criticism from netizens with many condemning the young man for embarrassing his parent upon their new discovery.
