Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has been given a dose of how inconsiderate social media can sometimes be, after seeing his seemingly harmless tweet totally backfire.
The star actor who is currently in London to take care of some personal business, was baldy trolled by former UK High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin.
Dumelo took to Twitter to post on what he was up to at the moment, deciding to let his fans in on his travels and enjoyments.
In a harmless tweet, Dumelo wrote: “.....woke up at the Dead Sea, had lunch in Turkey and now landing in London. What a day!”
However, upon being sighted by Jon Benjamin, the tweet became an instant troll, with the UK Diplomat taking the time to remind Dumelo of some past ‘history’.
Jon Benjamin quickly replied: “In London? If I see a freshly repainted V8 with its own private siren heading down The Embankment, I’ll give you a wave. Enjoy our city!”
But the actor did not allow the UK Diplomat’s tweet to weigh him down and responded with one of his own, saying: “Yep....that’s me. I’m picking the Queen up for tea.”
Now that’s some real banter!
