Since we are exclusive, I talked to my girl about it after the first day we used a condom and she agreed we can skip them after her menstrual period - when she is safe. And since then, we have been enjoying ourselves bareback. It feels really good. I always ask her as well if I'm hurting her and if

Actress whose semi-nude pics broke the net blasts blind student for 'correcting' her

Remember Bibi Bright? She is the Ghanaian actress whose braless and pantless 30th birthday photos sparked controversy because of their very explicit nature.

Ms Bright has sparked controversy again when she commented on a Ghanaian show, that God does not create disabled people. She put all the blame for physical defects on parents rather than the Creator.

After watching the show, one visually impaired student of the University of Ghana wrote a letter to the actress attempting to point out the inaccuracies in her statement, perhaps get her to realise how such a sentiment as that she espoused might be cruel to the sensibilities of people with disabilities and their parents.

Bibi Bright's response to the blind student was very shocking, and described by some as cruel.

She wrote:
“You got some nerves to send me a message”

“It’s my views if you don’t like it then keep your views to yourself!! Stay out of my dm’s…. Stay in your box brain and leave me to be in my open mind.. Never ever in your life dm me again! Thank you!

And visually impaired? Well ask your mama what she was taking in when she was pregnant with you… There you have your answer! You left your number for? FOH!!”
Below is the letter the visually impaired student wrote that sparked so much tactless words from the actress. Read and tell us if there is anything provocative about the letter
