If you can't take it, don't dish it out. Twitter users rain insults on Tunde Ednut after he insulted the Innoson Motors SUV Mercy won.

Following her victory as the winner of the Big Brother Naija TV reality show, season 4, Mercy was presented a brand-new Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), made by Innoson Vehicle Motors. Amid the whole excitement of her win, Blogger and Entertainer, Tunde Ednut, shared his opinion about the car on Twitter. According to him, the organizers could have done better by presenting the winner with a better car like a G-wagon or Ranger Rover instead of what he described as a “Nepa Motor.”

Twitter users felt the tweet was unpatriotic

For those who do not know what NEPA means, it is an Acronym for National Electric Power Authority. NEPA was the national electricity provider in the country before the institution was privatized. Given the bad state of electricity in the country, being associated with NEPA is far from being a compliment. If anything, it is derogatory. Twitter users got the shade in his comment, and dragged him for it.

Responding to his comment, some online users cussed him out, and threw jabs at him over his former musical career.

Mercy made history as the first woman to win the popular TV reality show which ended on Sunday, October 6, 2019, ever since it began.
