Former NTV presenter turned beautician Bettinah Tianah on Thursday evening made a thread of rants expressing anger over Daniella Atim’s reaction to a post she made.
A few days back, Bettinah made a post expressing her need to go to Europe for shopping and one Luwangula Mukaabya commented advising the fashionista to drop the thought or else she would receive the same treatment as Meghan Markle. He suggested that Tiana should rather go and shop in the areas of Owino and Kajja where she won’t face segregation.
Daniella who found Mukabya’s comment funny shared its screenshot on her Instagram and captioned: “I swear it’s a full time job being a Ugandan, not for the faint hearted,”
Bettinah, who is of a darker complexion, felt offended by Daniella’s post and replied saying she had lost all the respect she had for the mother of five.
“Dear Daniella Atim, the respect I had for you got flushed down the drain. Nothing funny here at all. I expected you to condemn such behavior, the fact that it humors you to the extent of posting for your followers to laugh baffles me. Being black aint a crime,” Bettinah responded.
Trying to clear her intentions, Daniella apologized and also made it clear that her skin complexion does not make her white. She is also a black woman.
“Dear Bettina, I am sorry you feel insulted that I am having a light moment. You are definitely a beautiful woman and I was hoping you could loosen up a little and laugh at the comment directed to your original post like I did. We can’t be serious all the time, can we? It’s okay to have a light moment and you too can have one. In any case I am a black woman too and I love every black woman. Now let’s hawk that bizigo,” She tried to explain herself.
Many dark-skinned girls did not accept Danniella’s apology. They said Daniella was very mean and It was not wise of her to share a bad comment as a joke. However, most followers were on Danialla’s side claiming that Betttinah had taken offence for something that was meant to be a joke.
