Sri Lankan Girl Slaps Street Tout 6 Times For Insulting Her Outfit

Posted in: ,

This is said to have happened at the Wariyapola bus stand, a popular gathering point in Sri Lanka. The man insulted the young lady for wearing skinny jeans and a blouse with open sleeves and she challenged him. As she got progressively more angry as she spoke, she slapped the guy and kept slapping and hitting him.

Many have said she went overboard in showing her anger, and that calling him out or insulting him back, or at most one slap would have sufficed to teach him a lesson. They point out that the man could have attacked her back, and she's just lucky he took the beat-down like a gentleman.

I say a gentleman wouldn't have insulted a lady in the first place. See the video below and share your thoughts...

Posted in: , , ,

In his latest blog post, Charles Novia writes on the death of actor Robin Williams, who reportedly committed suicide due to severe depression, noting that mental illness sometimes goes hand in hand with creativity. The filmaker also makes reference to legendary Nigerian reggae musician, Majek Fashek, who he says is currently battling with depression.

Read what he said below:

I was having a conversation a day before Robin Williams’ suicide with my daughter, Nosa, about Majek Fashek and how I managed him and his career for 6 years (2005-2011) and released his hit album ‘Little Patience’ on my label, November Records.

When she saw visuals of how handsome and vibrant Majek used to look and his recent visuals of his emaciated and scraggly look, she was touched and pained. Especially when I told her that Majek is battling with a form of depression and other ‘spiritual’ stuff he has openly confessed to in some media interviews.

"During my high school days I was bullied for several years, I would get jumped on the bus, head flushed down the toilet and so on, it got so bad that I did something drastic and life threatening because I was so depressed.

Of course they would joke and laugh but my mother was always so calm and reserved and she would take me home, cook me Naija food (we were living in london at the time) and she would make me realize how loved I was and how rich my culture is, how beautiful I am being a nigerian girl (I was bullied for being African, skinny, dark and I had a strong naija accent) what my mother didn't do was fight, shout or argue with the other girls or their parents (who were at times very rude and disrespectful) Instead she showered me with love and reminded me where I was from.
