Another said, “I just wanna know why people are saying that Henry Cavill’s girlfriend is racist when an east African tribe accepted her into their group and performed a ritual using ojitze… wouldn’t it be more offensive if she refused it?“

I couldn’t help but notice that there has been some social animosity of late. It’s becoming increasingly prevalent on my feed. There have been lots of, let’s call it speculation for now, about my private life and professional partnerships. Now, while I do appreciate the passion and support by those very people who are “speculating”, It has come to such a point that I needed to say something, which in itself, is a bad thing. We are living in an age of social enlightenment. More and more, people are realizing that their views may have been blinkered and that they need to expand them to encompass others. So, to you out there who are expressing your disdain and showing your displeasure through a surprising variety of ways, it’s time to stop. I know it can be fun to speculate, to gossip, and to dive into our own personal echo chambers on the internet, but your “passion” is misplaced, and it causes harm to the people I care about most. Even your most conservative of negative assumptions about both my personal and professional life just isn’t true. Let’s embrace this age of social enlightenment together, and move forward with positivity. I am very happy in love and life. I’d be enormously grateful if you were happy with me. If you can’t bring yourself to be happy with me, then at the very least try to do yourself proud and be the best version of yourself..”
