UPDATE – This article has been updated since it’s original posting to include the apology K Naomi issued.

IT hasn’t taken long for influencer and media star K Naomi to establish herself as one of the country’s leading popular figures. One of the reasons for this is that she takes her fans and her online followers into her confidence when she is experiencing something. Like the time K Naomi lost her mom around 7 years ago. Fans and followers appreciated being part of her healing journey getting over the pain her late mum left behind.

Another time K Naomi opened up to her online following was about her battles with depression and anxiety. “So… This year I’ve been suffering from minor depression. As small as it may seem I hit rock bottom and felt like I couldn’t handle or wasn’t in control of my life. With the help of family and a psychologist I’ve been pushing through. Thought I’d share ♥️,” she wrote.

But in the early hours of this morning, the star tweeted the following:

And now the Twitterverse is calling her out for her insensitivity against those who suffer from this form of mental illness, with others saying they believed it was something of a stunt to get her name trending.

Others, however, came to her defence, claiming that perhaps she didn’t know what bipolar truly is, or that she wasn’t referring to the mental illness itself, but rather people who have personalities that seen to flip from one extreme to the next.

UPDATE – This article has been updated since it’s original posting to include the apology K Naomi issued.

At around 10h00 this morning, K Naomi took to Twitter to issue an apology for the tweet and explain what she was trying to say.

“Apologies to everyone about my previous post. My intention wasn’t to offend anyone… I should have used different wording. I was just trying to say that I’m tired of people who always switch up. It’s either we vibe or we don’t… Apologies,” she typed, followed by another which read, “Sincere Apologies.”

What do you make of her explanation?
