Churchill, resonating with the post, reposted it on his verified Instagram page, emphasizing that cyberbullies and blackmailers are worse than witches and wizards. He expressed disappointment in how some are exploiting Mohbad’s tragedy for attention and pretending to show support publicly.
He wrote, “Pretty Mike of Lagos is one of the smartest people I know in the industry. He literally took words out of my mouth with this post. As we’re seeking Justice for Mohbad, let’s stop being cyberbullies ourselves.”
Churchill stressed that there is no distinction between cyberbullies and the alleged attackers of the young artist. He underscored that blackmailers and bullies are even worse than witches and wizards, expressing sadness that they exploit tragedies for attention.
In conclusion, Churchill urged everyone to refrain from pulling people down while hiding behind keyboards, promoting a more compassionate and empathetic approach to online interactions.
