Comedian Eric Omondi slammed for ‘thief on the cross’ stunt
Comedian Eric Omondi was on Thursday roasted online for posting an image of himself on a cross as the thief who was crucified alongside Jesus.
Despite captioning the photo with a biblical excerpt, Mr Omondi was accused of blasphemy by his Instagram followers.
