UK NEWS: EASTENDERS STAR BUNMI MOJEKWU (MERCI) AND RAPPER AMPLIFY DOT ‘TRADE BLOWS’ VIA TWITTER
I came across our latest UK Twitter “spat” over at Pappzd.com earlier today, and from what I gather it all started when female emcee Amplify Dot tweeted that Eastenders star Bunmi Mojekwu (who plays Merci in the soap) “is wedge” (meaning thick). But this didn’t go down too well with Bunmi. Click HERE to read.
Then came the insults and to my surprise Bunmi held her own. Click HERE to read more.
But it was the remarks below from Amplify that caught my attention.
I can't wait for Eastenders tonight I'm gonna throw bananas at my TV—

Admittedly when I watch Eastenders I cannot help but complain loudly and despair over Merci’s ill advised weaves, but you would expect remarks of that nature (above) from racists and National Front/BNP members, not from a fellow black female.
*shaking my head*.
