Becca‘s attempt to offer an explanation to her tweet which was seen as insensitive and unnecessary has landed her into fresh trouble on the Ghanaian Twitter space.
The explanation she presented sought to suggest that many of her followers took her tweet out of context because she was looking at the ‘bigger picture’.
In that clarification tweet, Becca stated that she wanted to make the point that Ghanaians and Africans, in general, should try and deal with issues of racism in our settings before they poke their noses into what is happening on different continents.
Don’t take it out of context ‼️ pic.twitter.com/dzAPBaSATT— Becca (@beccafrica) June 4, 2020
Apparently, her followers feel she is still wrong, and as such, they have been dragging her on the bird social media app.
See some of the reactions below

‘What are we doing to combat xenophobia’ but you have never started a conversation about it or done something until people started talking about racism. You had to wait for a man to die before wanting to start a convo? https://t.co/1ATfyonEKT https://t.co/mDGlJX7FcS— Miss Brobbey (@_Sandra_Gh) June 4, 2020
The mistake you did was to sort of condemn the fact that Africans home are using their voices for what is happening in the USA and not doing same for what's happening here.. You could have just say as we using voices for what's happening out there let's use same energy here too— Kwame KaTaGa (@SolomonKingArt2) June 4, 2020
Ironic how the person who sang the “African woman” song is now obroni. U snitched on the lyrics of the song😩.— CONTINENTAL KWAME CAPPOCHINO🇬🇭🇳🇬🗯 (@KwameNanaba) June 4, 2020
When South Africans were killing other Africans did you address xenophobia? You have to do the right things at the right time. Don’t jump on a movement to talk about a different issue and label Ghanaians as hypocrites. I’m glad you’ve rectified your statement though— GhConfidential🖕🏾 (@Majesticalys) June 4, 2020
