Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus took to Instagram to lambast some male followers who accused her of promoting domestic violence after she advised women to learn martial art to defend themselves from an abusive spouse.
The actress shared a video of a wife surprising her husband by beating him up when he tried to lay hands on her.
The mum-of-two said she’s “loving” the video.
This angered some of her male followers as they accused her of promoting domestic violence on men.
Stella then did a live video to address the issue.
She said the video really made her happy, because, for years, it’s always been the men hitting and abusing women and, for once, a different story has shown the reverse.
She added that perhaps, if women had learnt to protect themselves early on and men knew they wouldn’t get away with hitting such women, they will learn to exercise self control.
Some male followers came on her live video to call her out. One accused her of being a feminist.
Stella blasted each individual who commented on her live video to oppose.
“When a woman decides to defend herself that’s when all of you will come out and start talking rubbish,” Stella said.
She went on to advice women to learn martial arts to defend themselves because society will not defend them, instead it will vilify them and take the side of men.
