Renowned Nigerian Writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has been a trending topic on micro-blogging website, Twitter, after an old video of her talking about using feminism to justify wickedness was shared.
She said in the video: “I often say to young Nigerian feminists, please do not use feminism to justify your wickedness.
“So you have some of these young women and I’m talking to them and they sound really mean and I say, you know what, this isn’t feminism, you’re just really nasty.”

The Queen of modern day feminism, Chimamanda Adichie said that these days a lot of Nigerian women hide under the umbrella of feminism to be nasty & mean.
If that ain’t the Gospel Truth!

Every time I listen to Chimamanda Adichie, I feel convinced she is just holding on to the Feminist label. Egalitarianism fits her to a tee.
If she was the sole voice of Feminism, everyone would listen. Every other acclaimed Feminist sounds like an irredeemable idiot.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie called Nigerian Feminist “Wicked”, “Mean” and “Nasty” in this 18 seconds video. Wicked, Mean and Nasty is a byproduct of Angry, Bitter and Raging Feminist.
