- BBNaija housemates Esther and Thelma recently got into a heated argument
- The fight started when Esther tried to correct Thelma about not using imbecile to describe mentally challenged people
- Thelma however, tried to defend her choice of words therefore leading into fight
It appear the 2019 edition of the Big Brother Naija reality show is getting hotter by the day. If they aren't keeping people entertained with their dance moves and budding romance in the house, they are getting into fights.
Housemates Esther and Thelma got social media buzzing with their recent fight about the politically correct choice of word to describe a mentally challenged person.
They were given a challenge to come up with an educative play. Thelma opted to play the role of a mentally challenged person. However, rather than use a less offensive word, she called them imbecile.
Esther immediately tried to correct her but it appeared Thelma wasn't ready to be corrected and insisted there was nothing wrong with her choice of word. Esther maintained she needed to take corrections and it appears everything spiraled downwards from there.
Watch video below:
Many social media users reacted to the fight and very few were on Thelma's side.

Tacha who seemed to have gotten a lot of popularity given her profile on social media, appeared to be a threat to some members of the house including Thelma who subtly expressed her dislike for the already famous housemate.
So, when the opportunity presented itself, Thelma jumped on. It started after Tacha dished meals for everyone and settled to eat but a dissatisfied Thelma complained about the portion which she got.
