A former actor now turned politician have been on the news for a while now but for obviously wrong reasons after a video surfaced on the social media where he allegedly called for a stricter social media regulations in Nigeria.
Many of his fans and colleagues have expressed shock as to why he seems to be insensitive to many youths that died during the #EndSars protest instead have turned against same people he obviously used to furrow into the political space.
Some notable celebrities such as Davido, Scales and Footballer John Ogu have all expressed disappointment on the former actor and member representing Surulere constituency in Lagos State house of assembly.
Davido wrote; “Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious childhood memories he gave us in movies …”
Another music sensation Skales tweeted “Desmond Elliot tho… can’t trust anyone in politics. Kai e fall my hand”
Super Eagles footballer, John Ogu tweeted; “Desmond Elliot called us all CHILDREN. Just imagine!!!! I’m happy he has advised we go get our PVC. E go shock them all when the time reach.
“The same Social media you used in campaigning, the same Influencers he paid to campaign for him and the same youth who voted for him have all turned CHILDREN in his eyes. Desmond elliot wey be say Na only bucket of water he buy take use as hand sanitizer for him area during COVID wants to tell us how to use Social Media”.
Another Twitter user wrote “Desmond Elliot is more concerned about Respect, The army shooting at peaceful protesters did not annoy him, what annoyed him was people showing their anger at the event.”
@BiyiThePlug was obviously angry by the children name tag, “Desmond Elliot wey join politics yesterday dey call us children, just imagine.”
Well this is really a very wrong time to be named Desmond Elliot as plenty celebrities and fans alike continues to drag him left, right and centre for his infamous call.
