It’s a protest that has gone viral and celebrities around the world are pushing to bring back the hundreds of missing schoolgirls who were allegedly kidnapped by Boko Haram on April 16.
It has been an emotional nightmare for the families of the missing children and many Hollywood heavy weights have taken to Twitter to express their deep sadness and sympathy for the victims loved ones.
Porsha Williams: “Help bring these girls back. Sign the petition on www.change.org #bringbackourgirls :(”
Mary J. Blige: “It’s been two weeks since the kidnapping of 234 Nigerian girls and they still aren’t home #bringbackourgirls.”
Ja Rule: “So sad pray for Nigeria!!! #Bringbackourgirls.”
Kerry Washington: #bringbackourgirls
Chris Brown: “Nigerian girls ages 16-18 were kidnapped from their schools in Nigeria 2 weeks ago when an armed terrorist group broke into their school, shot the guards & kidnapped over 200 girls because they attended school. Lend a voice by asking authorities to #BringBackOurGirls.”
Keri Hilson: “How can we get the Nigerian school-girls back home????????? The world cannot be this cruel!!!!! She added, “Nigeria, you are in my heart … #BringBackOurGirls.”
According to reports, the number of kidnapped schoolgirls missing in Nigeria is now at 276, while 53 have escaped. According to several reports, it’s believed that some of the victims have been forced into marriage with their extremist abductors. Halite Aliyu of the Borno-Yobe People’s Forum tells The Associated Press that the students are being paid 2,000 naira ($12) to marry the militants.
A Borno state community leader tells The Associated Press that the Boko Haram terrorist network is “negotiating over the students’ fate and is demanding an unspecified ransom for their release.”
‘Black Panther’ Sequel To Focus On Okoye & Dora Milaje?!
A Billi, A Billi, A Billi … when your movie nets a billion dollars OF COURSE there’s going to be a sequel!!
As Black Panther continues to dominate the box office, talk has already turned to a sequel. Marvel president Kevin Fiege confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that they will definitely be returning the Wakanda stating, “we absolutely will do that.” But when asked what direction the movie would take, his answer was intriguing:
“I think there’s lots of potential. It’s a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named. I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe. Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye. I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them.”
Yessss, be intrigued! We all need more Danai Gurira (who plays Dora Milaje leader, Okoye) in our lives.
