Kenyans’ rib-cracking reactions to Eric Omondi’s viral video are the best you’ll see all day

By Robert Abong'o | March 1st 2018

A video of popular comedian Eric Omondi bare-butt surfaced online, sparking wild reactions from netizens.

In the video that has since gone viral, the comedian is seen playing with kids in a river in his birthday suit.

The CEO of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) was among the first people to react to the video, saying that it was wrong for him to expose himself and was saddened by the fact that some people look up to Eric as a role model.

Eric Omondi's video is in violation of kenya Film Classification Board's classification guidelines under Cap 222 but also the Children's Act. The parents of minors should sue Eric for the gross abuse and indecent exposure of their kids. @InfoKfcb @Khagali_M @NellyMuluka— Dr. Ezekiel Mutua (@EzekielMutua) February 28, 2018

Using children in a manner like Eric Omondi did in the name of comedy is wrong. How sad that anyone looks up to this clown for a role model! @InfoKfcb @Khagali_M @NellyMuluka @KibetBenard_ @ConsumersKenya @Ikoajekenya

Mutua’s reaction was just the tip of the iceberg.

Netizens flooded Twitter responding to the viral video, most of them sharing rib-cracking comments instead of bashing the comedian.

Though Eric has already apologized for his actions, it’s not too late to take a look at some of the jaw-dropping reactions on social media. Here is a sample:
