BBN Star Angel Smith says women should sell their P*$$ys

Former Big Brother Naija star is under fire on Twitter as an old tweet of her’s resurfaced on line. She weighed in with insensitive comments on Chris Brown’s IG rants about cancel culture and domestic violence where he referenced the Abusive relationship of Blueface and Chrisesn Rock.

In a now-deleted tweet, she quoted a tweet of a certain user who seemed to show some support for the R&B singer

It is worthy of note that a podcast went viral a few weeks ago where Nedu Wazobia mentioned that he saw two BBN Female influencers locked in a Hilton Hotel room a few months ago in a Threesome affair

In what looked like self-defense Angem went on social media to insult the hell out of Nedu for sexualizing her colleagues and Gender. She went ahead to call Nedu a ‘jealous rat’

These tweets went viral until her old tweets resurfaced where she actually encouraged women to put a price on their bodies, affirming Nedu’s claims. Many have been wondering whether she was actually one of the ladies Nedu Saw at in that hotel room that day.

The tweet has soon gone viral and has received more than three hundred quotes within an hour. It’s safe to say that this weekend is going to be a very long one for the Big Brother Naija star as many others have gone really messy with the quotes fighing old photos of her from the show where she exposed her private part on National television

What do you think about this? Do you think she was right to ignore Nedi when she’s actually guilty of the same crime?

BREAKING: Simon Cowell ‘set on ABLAZE by masked Britain’s Got Talent contestant in terrifying stunt’ during London auditions

The TV judge, 63, was taken on stage and had a hood put over his head by a magician, who was masked during the show.

The Mirror reported that lighter fluid was poured all over the hood, then his head was locked in a box which was opened at the front for the audience to see inside.

The magician then dropped a flame into the box and his entire head went up in flames, leaving the other judges and audience in shock.

One onlooker said: ‘The audience screamed, judges were out of their seats screaming, everyone was totally stunned. The flames were put out and Simon got up looking a bit shell-shocked while the rest of the judges breathed a sigh of relief as he returned to the panel.’

Afterwards Simon quipped: ‘I could feel liquid being poured on me but I had no idea it was lighter fluid!’

Fellow judge Alesha Dixon added: ‘Simon, he set your entire head on fire! It was very scary, you are a very brave man to do that. It made me realise how much we care about you, I was ready to come up there and rescue you.’

And new judge Bruno Tonioli said: ‘It reminded me of a scene from that movie, Saw, seeing Simon’s head in that contraption. I was captivated, I’ve never seen anything like that.’

It comes after Bruno reportedly threw Britain’s Got Talent auditions into chaos when he pressed his Golden Buzzer twice before admitting he’d never watched the show.

The former Strictly judge, 67, has joined the panel of the ITV talent competition for as a replacement for comedian David Walliams , 51, who left after he made ‘disrespectful’ comments about contestants from previous series.

Professional dancer Bruno apparently did not realise that the Golden Buzzer, which automatically sends auditionees through to the live finals when pressed, could only be used once, and reacted when the audience began cheering for an impressive act.

Producers are said to have panicked after they were left with a decision of whether to send the hopeful through or cancel Bruno’s second buzz.

A source told The Sun : ‘It was madness. The buzzer worked but there was no glitter in the cannon above the stage as it had already been used up.

‘Then there were discussions with the top execs and Simon [Cowell], who had his head in his hands.’

The source said Bruno then admitted he had never actually watched Britain’s Got Talent before, claiming he did not want to be influenced by the judging styles from previous series.

Luckily, the audience saw the funny side and Bruno is remaining on the panel as the new big money signing.
