As we were planning to jump into the weekend, Anita Nderu was trending on social media and many said she was under siege.
In her weekly segment, Overdressed Cook, she had two guests on her show who identify as LGBTQ . The content of the simple and hearty conversations they had got many Kenyans up in arms and upset. In fact others rebuked Anita and her friends.
She did not speak of it when many threw stones at her but rather let things cool off and then dropped a long post.
Anita Nderu stood her ground and said she is not sorry for creating such content and made it clear she will not be harassed because of what she stands for.
"I was told to overdress the nation, so I shall😄🏳️🌈💕I am pro-freedom of expression! Most of you chose to throw me under the bus because of being pro LGBTQ🏳️🌈 I remain unapologetic 💕Do what makes you happy! You are only here for a while💕You call us a Christian state/too conservative, yet excuse lies, cheating, corruption and murder? Your hypocrisy is well noted.P.S Even the people who introduced you to Christianity accepted it! We have people who should be in jail yet they walk our streets but your biggest issue is how someone wants to be loved? If only you could redirect your anger! In the past few months the whole world has been shaken to the core. Each one of us in one way or another has been adversely affected by this pandemic. There’s been no better time to celebrate and live to the fullest. Each one of us owes it to ourselves to live, laugh and love authentically. I as a content creator stand by this, that is why I push boundaries on the content I post simply because it's a true expression of who I am. As such I would like to thank Kenyans for expressing their authentic views on this matter. That said I remain unapologetic, just as I respect each view I expect the same respect in return❤️🏳️🌈💕All the guests who have been on my show will tell you our one rule is be yourself, there is no script. We cook and hope for the best 😂 I cannot believe I am here defending my friends for being their authentic selves. Whoever is reading this, I hope you never have to be defended for being yourself, live you! Always💕Also🤦🏽♀️ it was not an advert in any shape way or form, even we didn’t notice the brand under fire was in the video. We as usual posted as we cooked, you will see the same in all our previous The #OVERDRESSEDCOOK videos. Give them a break, thank you💕" Anita Nderu said
