US Election: Nigerians Blast Femi Fani-Kayode For Calling Kamala Harris ‘Jezebel’
He made the comment on Monday while expressing his disappointment again over the outcome of the United States presidential election via his Twitter page.
FFK, who is an unapologetic supporter of incumbent President Donald Trump who lost the election to Democrat Joe Biden, had on Saturday said it was not over yet for the Republican candidate until US Supreme Court decide on result of the election, despite Biden being declared winner by US media.
Fani-Kayode, however, lauded Russian President, Vladimir Putin, for waiting for the official results before congratulating the winner of the keenly contested poll.
Harris, who is the first female, African and Asian-American vice-president-elect in the history of America, has been praised locally and globally by social and political figures including former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo, who said she has the Nigerian DNA.
FFK however thinks differently about Harris, tagging the VP-elect a ‘Jezebel’ in a tweet on Monday.
I know Jezebel when I see her. Look into Kamala’s eyes. Kaballa + Kundalini = Kamala. Biden is a puppet and a smokescreen. A Biden presidency is a Kamala Presidency. A Kamala Presidency is satan’s Presidency. May God deliver. #CountEveryLegalVote
Jezebel, a biblical character who was the wife of King Ahab, who ruled the kingdom of Israel.
According to the Biblical narrative, Jezebel, along with her husband, instituted the worship of smaller gods, Baal and Asherah. Subsequently, she violently purged the prophets of God from Israel.
The word ‘Jezebel’ is now often used to represent a wicked, satanic, sexually promiscuous and controlling woman.
This however drew the ire of many Nigerians on Twitter, who slammed the ex-minister for resorting it to name-calling over political differences.
See some reactions below;
I hope you people are seeing the amount of tweets talking down Kamala Harris. Calling her Jezebel and saying she slept her way to the top. I doubt we’ll be seeing any of that if Biden chose a male VP cuz some people actually believe a woman can’t get to higher places on her own.

So disrespectful to call someone’s mother and wife a Jezebel! No matter our political inclination, there are certain words or statement that shouldn’t be used to address women mostly responsible mothers!

Dear chief FFK, I think it’s okay not to be part of the support base of the POTUS-elect and his vice, it’s your right. But resorting to name calling in that regard isn’t statesmanly. The choice Americans have made unprecedentedly must be respected.

When a man suffers from a string of bad marriages he begins to fancy himself a connoisseur of women, not wanting to believe that he is just what he is- a failure.

I know a drug induced hallucination tweet when I see one. FFK jumping from DT will prevail to KH Jezebel bla bla bla is a classic example.
Someone get this druggie’s stomach pumped urgently.
