This upsets me - Lexi

Former Big Brother Mzansi runner up Lexi Van Niekerk has weighed in on the recent  disqualification of Big Brother Nigeria's Ekemini "Kemen" Ekerette on Sunday after he was accused of touching female contestant T-Boss inappropriately while she was sleeping.

Taking to social media Lexi said that the unacceptable behavior was something that wasn't new and she had seen it before.

"This upsets me! Trust me, I know a lot of men like this," Lexi said in a tweet. "TBoss should stay strong. It gets lonely in there especially when housemates gang up on you! She needs support right now," Lexi added.

Over the years there have been stories were women hadn't been treated well by fellow contestants in the Big Brother house like in 2010 when Ugandan housemate Hannington Kuteesa hit South Africa's Lerato Sengadi.

In a statement speaking on the recent event MultiChoice Nigeria said  that Kemen's actions were inappropriate and serious.

"M-Net and the show producers Endemol Shine Africa, are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all housemates in the Big Brother house at all times. We view the actions of Kemen as inappropriate behavior, and as such we considered this in a very serious light and will continue to take necessary disciplinary action against housemates who break the rules of conduct in the Big Brother house," the statement read.

Ekemini or his representatives have not said anything about the incident.
