According to her, health care professionals shouldn't be portrayed in that light and nurses have worked over the years to portray a positive image.
"Dear @mrmacaronii, The Nursing Community attention has been drawn to your Recent videos promoting Nurses as Sexual object. It's funny until health care professionals start trending as "sexual objects", raunchy and uncultured. Obviously your comedy centers around playing with the mind of viewers by using sex*ually provocative images of endowed women (both subtly and direct) and though you passes some messages to those in power which you can call your own "sauce"...Albeit... This is uncalled for and shouldn't be taken as a light joke."

In a reply on Twitter, Macaroni affirmed that his 'freaky freaky' videos won't stop because that is not the only role he plays.
"Let me use this opportunity to address those always pushing the narrative that most of my contents are with women. First thing you should know is; that won’t stop!! I play other characters. Why be say na only the one with woman you dey watch??"
However, after what seemed to have been a long time of dragging, the skitmaker offered a lengthy apology and assured everyone affected by the skit that he had taken it down.
Nigerians react to Macaroni's actions
"I just love this guy! See matured response."
"Y'all taking fiction too serious."
"Everybody will just be triggered unnecessarily. It’s a fucing joke!!! ♂️♂️♂️"
"One thing about Mr Macaroni he’s always gonna do the right thing."
"What do y’all think comedy is? Every profession should start taking offense then. He did great by apologizing tho."
