KOT Cancels Miss Mandi over ‘Accountability’ Tweet

The internet streets are once again on a cancelling spree.

On Wednesday, media personality Miss Mandi tweeted, “I truly dislike people who aren’t big on accountability. You can’t go around doing things that hurt people then are afraid to be accountable to your actions. You’re stunting your own growth.”

The tweet generated mixed reactions with particular interest from one Koome Gitobu, who accused her of hypocrisy. “Just sitting here watching the person who constantly terrorized & brutally bullied me the entire time we worked together talk about accountability,” he quoted Mandi’s post.

Gitobu further explained incidences where Mandi made him feel inferior including making fun of his dressing and carrying packed lunch to work.

This further escalated the tension online where public figures such as Michelle Ntalami and Vinie O chimed in on the conversation. Take a look at some of the reactions below.
