Popular Ghanaian actress and socialite Rosemond Brown, aka Akuapem Poloo has apologized to Ghanaian for posting a naked picture of herself with her son on the boy’s birthday.
The picture revealed the actress in a naked state squatting in front of her half-naked son as they held hands and looked into each other’s eyes.
The picture, which went viral on social media, was met with stiff and wide condemnation from the public, particularly from the Gender and Children’s Affairs Minister Cynthia Morrison, who stated that she would ensure Akuapem Poloo is dealt with according to law for abusing her son.
Eventually, Child Right International also called on the Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to look into the matter, following which the police invited Akuapem Poloo.
Rosemond Brown earlier made a failed attempt to defended her actions, saying “I always bath with my son naked and I posted the picture to teach my son and other children not to neglect destitute women.”
But her excuse made matters worse for her and attracted even more bashing from the public, with some saying instead of apologizing, she was trying to take Ghanaians for fools.
In her latest video, however, the actress is seen crying and asking for forgiveness, saying that she has regretted her actions.
”I have not been myself and the sadness is eating me up after I posted a naked picture of my son in front of me talking to him on his birthday. All that I want to say is please forgive me. It will never happen again. I didn’t post it for bad intentions.”
”It was out of the pain I went through during childbirth. I realized that the post was not good so I took it off. Looking at the insults and captions I am seeing on my page? I have regretted posting it. I just want to say a big sorry to whoever I hurt by posting that picture. I will never happen again,” she said.
But in her attempt to win public sympathy, she made her son appear in the video and apologized on her behalf, an acting that has also been described as a further abuse of the child.
