Ghanaian actress, writer, and producer Lydia Forson has reacted to issue regarding seven female students of Ejisuman Senior High School who were expelled from boarding over a controversial video they shared on social media.
In a video shared on her platform, the actress was not in support of the punishment meted out to the students perhaps for a feminist side of things.
Ms. Forson suggested parents and authorities should have a conversation with their wards about social media and its repercussions than to go hard on them.
Management of the school sacked seven of the female students involved in the video from its boarding facility after they were deemed to have engaged in activities that tarnished the school’s reputation.
Reacting to the punishment, Forson told critics to stop pretending as if they never indulged in all kinds of foolishness when they were also young.
She noted that the difference between the current generation and generation of old is social media.
Jumping to the defense of the seven SHS girls who have been sacked from the boarding house, Forson made reference to some despicable acts some individuals have done in the past but they didn’t have camera phones to record it and share on social media so they got away with it.

Their punishment isn’t what I’m talking about here- that was inevitable. It’s how you all are discussing this like it’s the end of the world, like you’ve not indulged in all kinds of foolishness as a teenager to fit in. I’m realizing how very little these young people don’t know about the power of social media, and we’re not doing enough to educate them on this either.
