Due to the reported cases of body shaming against housemates that have been going on in the Big Brother Naija house, there are some actions the organizers of the show can take to curb the practice.
During this year’s Big Brother Naija show, some of the female and male housemates have been accused of body shaming their fellow housemates.
Notably, some male and female housemates have been accused of body shaming Angel, possibly due to the kind of clothes that she wears.
Seeing that body shaming has very negative effects on the victims’ mental health, it is very needful that the organizers of BBNaija do some things to stop body shaming.
One of the things that Big Brother Naija organizers can do to put a stop to body shaming in the Big Brother Naija house is to give strikes to defaulters.
Big Brother Naija may decide to start penalizing any housemate who body shames another by given them strikes.
As it is well known, one of the many penalties that Big Brother Naija housemates can be subjected to is strikes, and a housemate who receives three strikes can be disqualified from the show.
Accordingly, the organizers of the show can inform the housemates that anyone of them who body shames another, would be punished with a strike and possible disqualification.
Secondly, the organizers can put games and shows together among the housemates that will sensitize them to the dangers and negative effects of body shaming.
Sensitizing the housemates in this season and subsequent seasons on the negative impacts of body shaming and how its victims can be affected by it.
Such a move from the organizers will not only put a halt to body shaming inside the Big Brother Naija house but may also educate the public on why body shaming should be stopped.
