Ama Konadu Abebrese, a British-Ghanaian actress, says she feels “sorry” for the wife of Counsellor George Lutterodt, following her husband’s “misogynistic” rhetoric that has sparked public outrage.
She has, thus, urged persons close to Abigail Naa Yemoley to check on her well being to affirm she’s safe.
Abebrese’s advise comes after Lutterodt Wednesday, July 8, claimed in an interview on a local TV station that victims of rape always enjoy the act.
“I actually feel sorry for the woman married to Lutterodt. With such misogynistic views and his vile rhetoric in relation to rape. I wonder if she is safe with such a man. If anyone knows her, they should check on her wellbeing,” she wrote on Twitter on July 9, 2020.
Lutterodt’s comment has been greeted with lots of condemnation from celebrities including Nana Aba Anamoah, Juliet Ibrahim, Lydia Forson, Sister Deborah.
Abebrese had also shared her two cents on the issue.
Many have referred to him as a “rape apologist” who must not be given a platform to spew such unsavoury and insensitive remarks.
There have been incessant calls on social media to bar him from the media airwaves, with a petition put forward to the Ministry of Communication, National Communications Authority.
Meanwhile, the Minister for Gender, Cynthia Mamle Morrison has described the comments as “insane”.
