Brooke Boney replied: This is the best country in the world, no doubt. But I can’t separate the 26th of January from the fact that my brothers are more likely to go to jail than they are to go to school, or that my little sisters and my mum are more likely to be beaten and raped than anyone else’s sisters and mum, and that started from that day. This prompted a harsh backlash, mixed reactions from some viewers, and much commentary in the media.
