Readers Blast Punch Over Post on Actress

Punch Newspaper published a post in the early hours of today titled “Jennifer Eliogu goes to the doctor”…oh, in case you are not familiar with the name ‘Jennifer Eliogu”, she is an actress, one of the old faces in Nollywood. So this is the story

Celebrities are human like the rest of us. They eat, sleep, and fall ill like everyone else.
Some days ago, popular Nollywood
actress, Jennifer Eliogu Uchenna, was sighted in a hospital at Ogba,
Lagos. The popular actress known for her radiant smile was not in a
smiling mood as it was obvious she was in pain.

A nurse checked her blood pressure and
sought to know what was amiss. The actress, who was not her usual bubbly
self, said she was having a throbbing headache especially at her
frontal lobe and neck ache too. The nurse asked if Jennifer was
hypertensive and she said she wasn’t.
The actress was advised to cut down on
thinking and generally take things easy. She later entered the
consulting room to see a doctor. We wish the actress speedy recovery.
The post got some readers angry, while others were disappointed at the post, they didn’t see it as newsworthy.
See their reactions above. Left to me, I see nothing wrong with the post, it’s just that people are not used to reading such posts from Punch…it’s basically blogs that put up such stories! What do you think?
