Jada Pinkett-Smith took to her Twitter last night to tweet her support for Nigerians amid the sad ongoing #EndSARS drama, but she did it wrongly.
“The senseless brutality in Nigeria has me completely heartbroken. There has to be change,” the actress captioned the a strange map of Africa which is clothed in Nigerian flag.
And this drew the ire of the public despite her best intentions.
See the tweet and the reactions:

Jada really posted a map of Africa as the Nigerian map.
It’s 2020, but these people still think Africa is a country.

Africa is not a country Jada.
Nigeria is not a continent Jada.
We appreciate the thought, but do research like some of your mates. https://t.co/e7nMrSNflp
