Nigerian controversial On Air Personality, Freeze, has joined the social media frenzy to react to the removal of Nigerian actress, Funke Akindele from the cast of an upcoming Marvel movie, Avengers: Infinity War .
Recall that it was reported that the inclusion of the actress’ name was the work of a hacker.
In reaction to the hack, Freeze stated that Marvel should indeed compensate Funke Akindele with a role in the upcoming movie and further added that the hacker should be paid for the publicity stunt.
Freeze took to his social media page to write:
“Apparently Funke AKINDELE was not billed to be a part of the latest #Avengers Infinity. The latest gist is that her pic was put there by a hacker…..
If only Marvel studios knew what the hacker had done for them, they would have found him paid him and quickly contacted @funkejenifaakindele, found a role for her, shot her along with the cast and with the publicity and sales in Africa alone, possibly doubled their income.
I was heart broken when I saw that she was taken off the list…”
Additionally, a colleague of the Nigerian actress, Tonto Dike, also shared her thoughts on the issue; “Sad, was so happy) well,she is our Star and we love her regardless..it will happen,this just paved the way I sense it..”
The upcoming American superhero movie based on the Marvel Comics superhero team, the Avengers, is expected to be released in May 4, 2018 in the United States.
