Reacting to the tragic incidents via her Twitter page, actress Genevieve was critical of those – both men– responsible for the crime and called for justice on behalf of the victims.

“They either abuse their power, or have the power to abuse. In or out of uniform, we live in constant fear of men. Tina Ezekwe. Vera Omozuwa. Rest In Peace my darlings. We will get justice,” she wrote.

However, the movie star has since come under heavy fire from social media users for saying that “women live in constant fear of men”

Genevieve was slammed repeatedly by the online community for generalizing the issue, with some fearful that her words risk igniting a different hate campaign against men.
