"Some of the responses to this tweet...you lot understand victim blaming when it is physical abuse but suddenly it's "and you allowed it?" when it's spiritual manipulation/emotional abuse.Your ignorance stinks," @RianaRiya said.
"I’ve come back to this, trust me when I tell you, it is not as simple as ‘just saying no’ the depth of manipulation and scaremongering that goes into this will blow your mind and it’s further backed by the twisting of scripture," @dbcxptures said.
