Award winning actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim has responded to a troll who made an insensitive comment about her womb on Twitter.
The 46 year-old actress had shared lovely photos of herself in a navy blue jumpsuit on Twitter when the troll asked the vile question and advised her to do something about her childlessness.
The troll wrote,
“Why did you sell out your womb… And why are you to being fruitful to souls… Pls you need to make yourself fruitful and replenish.”
Reacting to the troll’s comment, Nse returned the negative comment with prayers but called the person a “Joy Vampire” (one who sucks people’s joy).
“Dear Joy Vampire, may you be fruitful in common sense. May you be replenished in kindness. May your soul never know adversity.”
The man was also dragged to filth for the offensive comment and he eventually deleted the tweet, then tendered an apology to the actress.
He wrote, “Am sorry… It was an erroneous error… With all of my heart I apologize.”
Nse replied, “No worries at all. How are you today? Good?”
It can be recalled that in 2019, the actress revealed that she had to remove her womb to live a normal life.
Nse also revealed that she was never going to be able to have a baby as she was diagnosed three years ago with Adenomyosis, a condition whereby the inner lining of the uterus breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus.
In her words,
“I was told I couldn’t have kids.”
And so, I had to have a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to make me have a life again and to stop going through what I was going through. And I’m literarily telling women and men, it really doesn’t matter if you can’t bear children. What really matters is what you would do for the world, for the universe. Tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand. It was reassuring there was someone there and it was telling me that this is reality, my reality.”
