Kamene Goro Blasted for Insensitive Post

Media personality Kamene Goro is facing heavy backlash after posting a tone-deaf post about mental health. On Thursday, the KISS FM radio presenter shared a now deleted meme which read “Mental health na hamna akili,” sparking outrage from fans.

In a statement to Kenyans.co.ke, she said that the post “was a joke about people who are ‘mindless’. I didn’t mean to troll people with mental health. I don’t take mental health issues lightly because it’s something I was once diagnosed with”.

Netizens have since called for her sacking at the Radio Africa-owned station, as was the case with former presenters Shaffie Weru, DJ Joe Mfalme and Neville Musya back in March.

Twitter Shuts Down Fleets

Fleets will no longer be available on Twitter after August 3rd, less than a year since its launch. According to the microblogging platform, the feature failed to register an uptake of new users as it had hoped.

Twitter will, however, test updates to the Tweet composer and camera to incorporate features from the Fleets composer – like the full-screen camera, text formatting options, and GIF stickers.

The social media platform’s live audio feature, Spaces, will still be available at the top of the timeline to highlight what’s happening in the moment.

HBO Max Releases FBoy Island Trailer

The reality series follows three women, Nakia Renee, CJ Franco and Sarah Emig, who move to a tropical island where they’re joined by 24 men – 12 self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” looking for love, and 12 self-proclaimed “FBoys,” there to compete for cold, hard cash.

The women will navigate the dating pool together with the hope of finding a lasting love connection. By the finale, all will be revealed – who is a Nice Guy, who is an FBoy, and who the women ultimately choose. FBoy Island is a social experiment that asks the age-old question: Can FBoys truly reform or do nice guys always finish last?

FBoy Island arrives on the streaming platform July 29. Check out the official trailer and poster below.
