Founder of Brian Jones Outreach Ministries and Ghanaian Pastor Brian Amoateng apologizes after celebrities took to social media to criticize him for his unacceptable response towards the pandemic.
Majority of the celebrities such Efia Odo, Sister Deborah, Eddie Nartey, Rapper Edem and many more expressed their disappointment towards the Pastor. Stating that the coronavirus epidemic has presented itself to expose fake and greedy pastors.
Eddie Nartey wrote, “Nkwasiaaaaaasem! You give money to God. Is God standing at the church receiving that money??? even my unborn child knows that money is for you!!! If you can’t help humanity in these trying times, then just SHUT UP!!!”
“Christians give offering and as he said, to receive a blessing, so why can’t the blessing be in the form of preventive materials like sanitizers especially in these #covid_19 times? Jesus Christ would’ve never asked us to buy our own sanitizers. This is far from Christ-like behavior. This is disgusting. He should be ashamed of himself,” Sister Deborah wrote
“We give to God u say, have u seen God before? Or when you collect the offering do u personally go to heaven and give God the money!!! GERRARAHERE.” Jasmine Baroudi also said.
After a series of criticism and backlashes, Brian Amoateng came out to apologize to everyone for his previous post. He stated that it was misconstructed.
“I want to clarify that this was an hour video that I was making with my audience. I was actually teaching them how to use hand sanitizers and what to do in this season. And personally, the iYes Foundation has plans that is helping the people behind the scenes.”
“But I want to say this that if my comment came as insensitive, I want to apologize to you. I’m very sorry about it. That’s not what we stand for. We do a whole lot of things behind cameras. So, please, I want to apologize to each and everyone that feels offended by this video.” brian said
