In this period of political tantrums, one is definitely going to be aggrieved by certain comments politicians pass and even comedians are not taking lightly what politicians call a joke.
In a three day campaign tour of the Eastern Region, the Vice President, Amissah-Arthur is claimed to have said short people need to be carried to see Mahama’s achievement. This angered Lekzy, who prides himself as the shortest comedian, as he took to social media to express his disgust. In a post he wrote: I know the ballot box won’t be too tall for us to cast our vote too. Politics should deal with issues not attacking physical looks of people. It’s an insult to me as a concerned short person.”
In recent times, the ruling party NDC, have made comments on short people which are aimed at the opposition leader, Akuffo-Addo. According to the comedian, politicians need to mind their language. They need not use such platforms to insult Ghanaians.
Talking to Comedy Empire he said, “I pride myself in being short. But it’s offensive for a public official none less than the Vice President of the land and his minister to make mockery of our height cos of politics. So are they saying short people aren’t humans? They really owe us an apology.”
