A journalist who works with Adom TV has come under severe social media bashing for asking a question to later-born Christian Atsu’s son at the funeral.
The journalist had asked one of the player’s sons how it felt for him to lose his father at such a young age.
While Christian Atisu’s wife and kids were making their way to the forecourt of the State House for the funeral, the journalist posed the question.
Although he did not give an answer, he was full of laughter as he was ushered to his seat alongside some members of his mother’s family.
The act has been seen as unprofessional, making Ghanaians descend on the media and journalists for such acts.
@pris__cylla: “Nobody should go interview them today !
Is a sad day for them.what do you expect them to say again?that they’re sad🤷🏽♀️ even us who are not related to Astu in any way can’t hold our tears 😭 how much more his wife and kids 😒😢
