• Eric hasn't commented on the furore his video caused online.
• Most Kenyans wondered why he would post such a private and intimate moment.
While Eric Omondi should be getting collective sympathy from Kenyans after the sad news that he and his girlfriend Lynne had suffered a miscarriage, that isn't what is happening online.
The reason Kenyans online are upset is the manner in which the comedian shared the news online.
To be exact, the issue isn't the news that they had miscarried, but that he had not only recorded the whole event of his torn girlfriend furiously mourning but that he also posted the video to Kenyans online.
(The video is still on his Instagram page at the time of writing this article)
The issue has gained so much traction online that it has made Eric trend on Twitter, with most Kenyans online calling him out.
Some of the comments can be best described as unprintable while others are asking for him to be cancelled the way Americans normally do stars they believe have gone down the deep end.
Check out some of those comments below;
MissOwira Just trying to understand before Eric Omondi sent that video online, did he even think twice. Does he even care about the people he loves?

GUSTAVO The most cringe and sad thing I've seen on the internet today is Eric Omondi posting a video of him and his wife crying by the bed after they lost their kid
Do you agree with Kenyans overwhelmingly lampooning Kenya's most followed comedian?
Is there such a thing as too much sharing for a popular figure who has made his name based on his oversharing nature?
Whatever the case, the question now is whether the comedian's behaviour online will change based on the backlash.
Hmmm. Your guess is as good as mine.
