She criticized the online mockery of such serious matters and made her remarks on Nairobi Gossip’s Instagram page:

“Going through comments and I’m in utter shock… this is why people never report this shit, post this shit… ’cause y’all make people actually want to kill themselves after all they’ve been through… have a laugh… enjoy… bye.”

Nairobi News contacted J Blessing for a statement, but he declined to discuss the matter.

He laughed it off hinting that if he chooses to address the issue, he would do so through his social media platforms.

Avril’s phone number was unreachable at the time of contact.

Concerned Kenyans took to various online platforms to express their distress over the photos, with many condemning domestic violence and calling for accountability:

Abol Ger: Unfortunately, this is an open secret. Very sad. I hope she gets help!

Craig Austin: I’ve never understood why you’d put hands on someone. If it’s no longer working, walk away. And this goes for both genders because I’ve seen some serious GBV perpetrated by women too. Don’t tolerate abusive partners. Expose them!
