Nigerian Twitter Reacts To Tyler Perry’s “Acrimony”
Not every film that is shot in eight days can generate so much attention around the world like Tyler Perry’s Acrimony is.
Acrimony is a psychological and intriguing story of a faithful black woman (played by Taraji P. Henson) who feels enraged after being “betrayed” by her husband (Lyriq Bent).
While we are wondering why the film which was released on the 30th of March just sparked a conversation on Twitter, we are enjoying the mixed reviews it has garnered from viewers.
Acrimony taught me:
👉 Money can’t heal some level of Pain.
👉 Don’t let Family opinions, influence core decisions in your Life.
👉 A man with ambition may do crazy things, but crazy things are what makes the wealthiest people in this world.

I started off Acrimony hating the husband
But ended it conflicted
That man was a good man.. even after the divorce he came back to look for her.

The reactions from highly conservative women after watching Acrimony really amuses me. Were you expecting him to not love the woman who took him in when he was kicked out by his ex wife and turned his dream into a reality?

The movie “acrimony” simply reinforces the fact that investing in people without investing in yourself is stupid. You helped them out of your free will and they can decide to exercise their free will by shitting on you. Having said that the woman is mad.

People who don’t understand why Taraji’s character in acrimony was so mad don’t recognize emotional and mental labor. You can give her $10M but can you give her womb back? Her time? Someone else was literally living the dream he sold to her for years. I can see why she flipped.

That lady in Acrimony was given $10 million and a house and she still couldn’t forgive/get over the guy. Should an Ex who wronged me give me 1gb data I’ll forgive her,get over her and even help her look for a good guy.😂😂

The real person at fault in the Acrimony movie was Mel’s elder sister. If not for her, she’d have stayed to enjoy the fruit of her labour.
Awkward opinions all over the TL yo!

Everyone is at fault for watching Acrimony because of the Anger they exhibit. The only problem here is #Anger.
Anger is like fire, if you don’t control it you are heading towards disaster.

Acrimony is seriously overrated.

Watched Acrimony and I’m so pained that Melinda got $10M & a house and refused to give herself brain and change the course of her life.
Bitterness is dangerous.

Acrimony might be a social experiment. How ever you think of the story reveals a lot about you than you think. Ebi deep like that.😂😂😂😂😂

I think the man’s fault in the Acrimony movie was refusing to do anything else apart from pursue his dream. You have a family to take care of so you can’t sit at home & wait in anticipation for when the dream “hits”. You need to be able to do both. It is necessary

The woman in Acrimony didnt want half of the 150m
She wanted the life the man was now living. The money was never the issue
She felt she was entitled to him
— Cinderella Man (@Osi_Suave) July 7, 2018
Funny thing about Nigerians’ reaction to Acrimony, is the fact that most people saw the movie with gender-based preconceived bias.
That’s why I’m seeing arguments about who was wrong and who was right.
Just pick the lessons and move on. Stop this Nollywood behaviour.

You caught your man cheating on you.
You knocked down his trailer with your car, got injured and lost your womb in the process.
Yet you still went back to that nigga.
Guys, I’m sorry but the woman in Acrimony was dumb from that point.

Guys. If Acrimony was a Yoruba movie, the title would be Surulere

Don’t argue “Acrimony” with your girl, man. pic.twitter.com/wY6fMPWFpK

Most of you are blaming Melinda in Acrimony.
That woman wasted her years on that man.
Lost her Virginity, womb, money and all to him and you expect her to move on just like that???

Tyler Perry in Acrimony didn’t direct that movie for us to say 1 person is okay n the other isn’t he did that for us to think critically how our behaviors and non behaviors affect our friends n loved ones and what could happen when they have had enough
— Tope (@sinzubaba) July 7, 2018
Acrimony both the husband and the wife are at fault
Me myself I’m at fault for watching it
— J (@justjoojo) July 8, 2018
Who do you think is to blame?
