Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju, controversial internet personality and cross-dresser also known as Bobrisky, says he woke up in “mentrual” pain — craftily adopting “mentrual” for “menstrual”.
The menstrual cycle, which may come with pain, is the regular natural change that occurs in the female reproductive system that makes pregnancy possible.
While this biological phenomenon is exclusive to women, the self-acclaimed transgender took to his Instagram page on Tuesday to claim that he “woke up with mentrual pain”.
His post has since generated a lot of attention on the social media platform with many followers visiting the comment section to offer their help, albeit in sarcasm.
While some of his fans called his attention to the grammatical flaw in the post, others were simply amused.
The 27-year-old Snaptchat celebrity, often referred to as “male Barbie doll,” has always made the headlines for several controversial reasons.
From pricking Nigerians with “new-grown” cleavages to flaunting the curves and buttocks, Bobrisky has continued to pull unprecedented stunts in his quest to be a woman — or a transgender.
As if previous social media stunts didn’t suffice, the controversial public figure also bewildered his fans and internet users after he claimed to have severed his genitals in pursuit of a more feminine appearance.
Some months ago, he also took a critical shot at detractors who refused to acknowledge his feminine status, having continued to refer to him as “bro”.
In an expletive-laden video rant, he had said:
“I post pictures and some people will tell me ‘You look good, bro.’ Who is your bro? I’m a beautiful girl. When I post and you want to comment, you can say ‘You look beautiful, baby girl or pretty woman’. Don’t come to my post and tell me ‘bro’. Let’s learn to respect ourselves.”
He went on to ask fans to “accept” his new look while speaking to Broadway Africa TV.
The cross-dresser has had a stormy ride recently following strings of backlash from security operatives and prominent figures in the country.
TheCable Lifestyle had reported how Zubairu Muazu, Lagos state commissioner of police, ordered 100 security operatives at venues in the state where he had planned to celebrate his 28th birthday, to prevent a potential “breach of public peace”.
Bobrisky would later lament the loss of over N19 million spent on putting together his birthday following the invasion by police.
In September, Olusegun Runsewe, director-general, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) had described him as a national disaster who poses a serious hazard to Nigerian youths.
Runsewe’s statement was, however, met with a plethora of backlashes from Nigerians on social media, especially on Twitter.
