Few days ago Trevor Noah interviewed Nigerian famous Author Chimamanda Adichie, but the interview raised many eyebrows due to Chimamada comment about men opening doors for women.




“I think gestures like holding the door shouldn’t be gendered; I have a problem with men holding the door for women because they are women “  – Chimamanda Adichie while on the daily show with Trevor Noah.


Chimamamda said that she disagree with the idea that women are somewhat weak, and they need to be protected, she thinks there are many women who are stronger than men, she also thinks that only people who are weak need the gentle gesture and the protection.


She move on to discuss and share her views about disaster plan,  “when there is a disaster, the first plan would be that women and children should leave first; I think the people that are unwell, the weak should be helped first regardless of their gender” – she said.


Twitter users had mixed reactions following her statements… See what they say below.


Chimamda is known for making unexpected statements, her last encounter with former United State presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appears disruptive because she asked why did Hillary’s bio says wife first?  Few days later, Hillary Clinton rearranged her bio, she did not remove the word Wife, but she moved it around.


Below is the exchange between Chimamanda and Hillary Clinton.


“In your Twitter account, the first word that describes you is wife. And then I think it’s mom, and then it’s grandmother,” Adichie said at the event.



“And when I saw that, I have to confess that I felt just a little bit upset. And then I went and I looked at your husband’s Twitter account, and the first word was not husband.”

Clinton replied, “When you put it like that, I’m going to change it”. During the interview, Hillary Clinton stated that she believes individuals should be able to define their accomplishments in ways they feel satisfied.

                                Hillary Clinton’s bio was later rearranged to this.
