Two months ago, Anita Nderu found herself on the receiving end after hosting two gays in an episode of her Overdressed Cook YouTube show. In the 18+ rated episode shared on her IGTV, Anita and her two hosts; Victor Maish and Romeo the Bossy were seen whipping up an eggs recipe.  It was not long before keyboard warriors pounced on the TV presenter and a cooking oil company whose product appeared on the show for allegedly promoting homosexuality.  In response, an unapologetic Anita explained that she supports the LGBTQ community and that every human deserves to be loved.

“I will never be bullied into silence. As human beings, we have the right to refuse to be defined by what other people think rather we must define ourselves. As people, we should celebrate our differences, encourage authenticity and wonder at the diversity of humanity. We all have a right to love and be loved however and whenever.”
