Betty’s ‘Sex Act’ On Big Brother Continues To Cause Backlash

Filed under: BBA8 Gossip |

SEXSierra Leon’s Bolt and Ethiopia’s Betty became the first couple to engage in a “sex act” in Big Brother Africa – The Chase.  Sex isn’t really anything new to BBA, many of you may still remember BBA Housemates Keagan and Talia’s romping during The Stargame.

Hailing from Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian communities in the world and where the majority of the population are Orthodox Christians; Betty, 26, a translator and teacher from Addis Ababa has definitely ruffled some conservative feathers.

Social media and bloggers were set afire, including prominent radio presenters in Betty’s home country, Ethiopia.

Facebook pages like “Betty Didn’t Represent Ethiopia on Big Brother Africa” have sprouted, condemning Betty’s very-open “hook up” on live television.

Fans from the Ethiopian disaspora have also shown mixed support with some feeling ashamed and worried about their reputations as “loose” people. Some comments even go as far as comparing Betty to a prostitute.

Many Ethiopians online have voiced their varying levels of disapproval, citing that Betty was representing Ethiopia on Big Brother Africa, and should have been more considerate to her culture.

Betty supporters continue to defend her sex act.

In Betty’s latest Diary (June 11/Day 16), she revealed that if Bolt were ever to be evicted, she would have to go on: “People nominated should be proud because they obviously are a threat. Bolt being nominated; I would be sad if he is evicted but its a game so I’ll still have to go on…Loyalty is very important so I’m trying my best to be loyal. Apart from Bolt, I’m loyal to everyone and the game.”
