A popular social activist and writer, Reno Omokri, on Sunday, October 25, has spoken about ill social activity of begging.

Reno said that while could show sympathy for widows, he does not have any for single mums. Many reactions have trailed his tweet since he made it.

Legit.ng compiled some of the comments his post got:
"Coz single moms are less of humans!? You don't need to boast about who you help or not. It's your choice and no one cares!"
"As much as I respect you and know you have a right to your opinion Sir, sometimes empathy gives room for some maybes. Some single mums had circumstances beyond their control, what if their spouses died. You are a role model to some, they might follow your steps without knowing Y."
"I'm a single mom. But I don't leech. Raising my kids alone is not a curse/burden. Kids that are already making their own money sef. Don't look for help. Find a solution."
"If you have to help pls do. No need to help or not to help based on their status. Before they became widows or single mothers, they were first human and our compassion should be towards human beings. Thank you sir!"
