Former presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, is currently under fire for his brazen article on the recently concluded Big Brother Naija reality show.
In the article, the veteran journalist and former chairman, Guardian editorial board, probably thought it was cool to write a piece- which is meant to be a think piece, by dissecting a lady’s breasts.
May be he was just trying to spice up the article but got in the wrong side of Nigerians.
For those who missed the article, this is the part that has got many people talking.
He wrote: "TBOSS and the other girls kissed and got groped by the boys on live television putting their upbringing to shame. TBOSS, who claimed she didn’t need the money even exposed her breasts on live television more than once. I have seen better breasts, TBOSS. I am not too sure those private jet owners will be excited by your fluffy, South-looking, slightly bigger than mangoes breasts. If the same men see bigger assets, I mean, those interesting Ojiakor-like ones that look like papayas, pineapples and watermelons, they will not send private jets, they will deploy submarines and fighter jets!"

Mr Reuben Abati just hit an epic low with this post. A secondary school student will be asked 2 pick pin 4 being this dumb. Smh pic.twitter.com/AISVq1mwvH— Susan Jide (@f1rstlaydi) April 11, 2017
For once, I agree with Reuben Abati. Well... Apart from the boobs aspect though. The article is a perfect summary of the whole show. pic.twitter.com/QvPoZFqen6— Wale Adetona (@iSlimfit) April 11, 2017
While everyone was all anxious about who would win the BBNaija show, Uncle Reuben Abati's attention was on a Tiwa's waist and thigh. pic.twitter.com/o55E0Udljv— Socdaily (@thesocdaily) April 11, 2017
