One particular reply caught everyone’s attention:
I’ll say this real quick, calling Nigeria “the greatest nation”, especially when you’re in the 0.5% mega privileged bracket, is an insult to every Nigerian who has to suffer every single day because of the REAL and unnecessary challenges they face. https://t.co/HHKwFmEh1E

Johnny Depp is still surprised at claims he abused Amber
Johnny Depp has broken his silence on former wife Amber Heard, after a lengthy court battle following her allegations of domestic abuse.
Depp, 55, was accused of lashing out at Amber, 32, whom he met on the set of The Rum Diary, when she filed for divorce in May 2016 after 15 months of marriage, allegedly hitting her with an iPhone.
While the case was eventually settled, Depp, insisted the allegations against him ‘couldn’t even sound’ like something he’d do.
He added: “Twenty-five feet away from her, how the f*** am I going to hit her? Which, by the way, is the last thing I would’ve done. I might look stupid, but I ain’t f****** stupid.“
