Twitter blasts Yvonne Nelson over ‘Sex for Grades’ tweet


Some Ghanaians on Twitter have attacked Yvonne Nelson over a tweet she sent on BBC Africa’s latest documentary dubbed “Sex for Grades”.

The explosive undercover documentary which aired on Monday, October 7, exposed some university lecturers who sexually harass students in exchange for favours.

Celebrities including Gifty Anti and Hamamat Montia have commented on the issue but Yvonne Nelson’s comment on Tuesday, October 8, received a heavy backlash.

According to Yvonne, ‘brains don’t matter’ anymore due to the menace but got twitter triggered when a portion of her tweet partially blamed the victims.

“Sex for grades! Sex for jobs! Sex for everything in our part of the world! Your brains don’t matter here. It’s the covered parts they want, oh wait, these parts aren’t covered anymore…it’s free on social media. Will it ever change??” she tweeted.

This angered the micro-blog users, with majority of them bashing her for the wrong reason.

“Been available for free is not a right for another person to want to abuse their power to have it. We need to reorient our attitude towards women. Intelligence is not for one gender,” user @Citizen_Gunner said.
