The majority of the girls that stalk me online aspire to be me – Mercy Eke, a reality TV personality, discusses her experience as a victim of cyberbullying.
Popular reality show star, Mercy Eke has asserted that most of the ladies that troll her online truly want to be like her.
The BBNaija star stated this in a recent interview with media personality, Taymesan, while speaking on the negative comments and criticisms she’s received since being in the spotlight.
According to her, the nasty comments get to her because she’s human with blood flowing throwing her veins and she sometimes feels like coming out to defend herself.
“Sometimes it does (get to me) because I am human, especially when lies are told about me, and I cannot defend myself. Sometimes, I just wallow in anger and wish I can say things as they are with proof. The trolling (cyber bullying) hurts me most times because they say horrible things to me.”
“They said I have been married, that I have been pregnant. At this stage of my life, I have to get it right. I am a lover girl and I give love.”
She added that she’s not intimidated by those who criticize her ‘igbotic’ accent because most Nigerian girls also have terrible accents.
“I don’t think anyone can intimidate me. Aside from the proper London girls, most of these girls have horrible accents. I attract people that like the real me. I have nothing to hide, and there is nothing to be intimidated by. I am doing pretty well, and many of the girls (that criticise me) want to be me. They want to be in my circle,” she said.
