Big Brother Naija star and influencer, Angel Smith, has opined that babies and toddlers should not be allowed on flights.
She made this submission in a tweet shared on Monday, May 8, while complaining about the noise and tantrums children throw during flights.
According to her, airlines should ban children from flights for the sake of other passengers. She further told parents to leave their ‘noisy’ kids at home, instead of taking them along on their trips.
“They need to ban babies/toddlers from being able to board flights. Leave those noisy coco felons at home”, she tweeted.
The tweet has sparked outrage among people, especially parents, who felt the reality TV star was being insensitive to suggest that airlines should impose a ban on young children.
