In a diary session with Maria, Big brother asked for her opinion on Angel’s relationship with the male housemates in the house. In response, Maria berated Angel, describing her as untrustworthy and disrespectful. Maria also said that Angel doesn’t respect boundaries and flirts a lot with the male housemates.
Biggie responded saying, Don’t you think the boys should be held responsible for not rejecting Angel despite being in a ship.”
“I totally agree with what you’re saying Biggie but I think at the end of the day boys will be boys. If anything easy comes their way, they run with it”, Maria responded.
Biggie however responded in Angel’s defence, saying that “If boys will be boys, then Angel will be Angel”, a response which left Maria in awe cos she didn’t see it coming.
Angel’s father, who happens to be handling her Instagram account did not take Maria’s comment against Angel likely, as he took to Instagram to tackle her statement. He criticized Maria’s comment ‘that boys will be boys’, saying society should learn to hold men accountable for their actions.
He also noted that a woman should not be judged or slut-shamed as being easily accessible because of what she wears or how she’s liberal with her body but the men gets away with ‘You know how boys are’.
His post reads, “We live in a patriarchal society where men are not held accountable for their actions in the name of ‘men will be men’. Who made these rules?
“A woman is not easily accessible because she chooses to be liberal with her body. It’s important that men are held accountable for their actions the way we hold women also, isn’t that what equality stands for? To excuse grave mistakes with the phrase ‘boys will be boys’ has to stop’
“That being said, Angel will be Angel in Big Brother’s voice.”
