Nollywood actress Ruth Kadiri has a message for African men who have continued to ridicule American actor, Will Smith for the way he handled his wife, Jada Pinkett’s affair with singer, August Alsina.

Few days ago American actress Jada Pinkett opened up about her affair with the 23 year old singer and referred to it as an “entanglement”. Her husband Will Smith who is also an actor eventually forgave her and they moved on. But some netizens felt he was too lenient with his wife and that he shouldn’t have easily forgiven her like that.

Reacting to this in an Instagram post, Ruth Kadiri said the larger percentage of men who have ridiculed Smith since the actor and his wife sat down to talk about their marriage are African men who find it hard to forgive men.

“Have you noticed that its mostly African men who ridiculed Will Smith for forgiving his wife’s situation. To the women who laugh at Will and her situation, you know you wish you had a man who got you like that, but you don’t and shit hurts,” she wrote.

The actress went on to stress the importance of forgiveness in a relationship.

“Forgiveness should be both ways. #respect, love, and forgiveness should be reciprocal. If you think otherwise go and lick Tomtom. (Nobodyshouldstressme),” she added.
