Speaking about the movie, Jim Iyke said, “It’s a conversation that I think is lagging behind in our society and we did extensive research before putting out this movie. The social media space isn’t being utilized positively and this is tragic. Social Media is supposed to be a space where people can find their dreams and shortcuts to exhibit what they really are. It’s become cool to project cruelty and hatred online and Bad comments speaks to this, we hope to show some of the perils of social media, we worked hard on a powerful production which has something for everyone.”
