Al Jazeera Article:Nigerian Women Are Prostitutes!gets Nigerians Angry

An article published online this morning by international news medium Al Jazeera has elicited furious reactions from Nigerians.

The offending article, which was posted on Al Jazeera English’s twitter handle, was headlined: “Nigeria’s first female mechanic provides a way out of prostitution for Nigerian women”.

The article…

Many Nigerians who took to social media to express their anger at the article, questioned the choice of words used by the headline writer and wondered how the media organisation got to know that the subject of the story was the first female Nigerian mechanic.

They equally vehemently berated the news organization for suggesting that all Nigerian women were prostitutes.

Al-Jazeera messed up big time, what survey dis they conduct that made them ascertain that that woman is the first female mechanic? Secondly, generalisation of Nigerian women being prostitutes is totally unacceptable.

Bleep all of you taking sides with Al-Jazeera here on Nairaland

Any Nigerian abroad is looked at by the host citizens as a bad societal element judging by what they’ve been hearing about us
