The image in question, depicting the anchor in a compromising position among colleagues, has generated widespread debate on social media.

Though the image was posted with the intent of catching cruise. This could have been overlooked if posted by a random individual but surely not from a personality such as hers.

The modern society today has embraced lots of controversial acts in the name of freedom of expression and the uniqueness of every individual. Forgetting or damning all consequences of actions and the impacts it has on the society. We should always bear in mind, at times message intented is not usually message perceived.

It is paramount that one considers the acceptability of his acts in the society he lives or the context of where it is done to avoid unforeseen penalties and discourteous judgement. Different laws guards different activities in different places.
