Ayo Makun, Nigerian comedian, has cursed some unidentified individuals who hacked ‘Merry Men 2’, a movie written by him, on its debut on Netflix, US media-services firm.
The action-comedy thriller premiered on the streaming platform on Friday.
Shortly after its debut on Netflix, the movie however, appeared to have been hacked with several non-authorised download links appearing on social media platforms.
Taking to his social media page on Saturday, AY condemned those behind the development, describing their action as a criminal act.
He went on to curse the hackers, noting they would also witness setbacks in their different endeavours for attempting to bring down the efforts of others.
“It would have been okay to hack or access Merry Men 2 as a criminal that your are, but sharing the link on social media and asking everyone to go download it outside the licensed Netflix platform is criminal. Do note that as you bring down the hustle of another man, yours will never grow,” he wrote on Twitter.
