Chimamanda Adichie has (once again) sent the internet into a frenzy.

While speaking with former US presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton at a PEN World Voices Festival lecture at the Cooper Union in Manhattan on Sunday, the opinionated author asked Hillary why her Twitter account begins with “wife”.

“In your Twitter account, the first word that describes you is ‘Wife.’ And then I think it’s ‘Mom,’ and then it’s ‘Grandmother. And when I saw that, I have to confess that I felt just a little bit upset. And then I went and I looked at your husband’s Twitter account, and the first word was not ‘husband’,” she said to the former FLOTUS.

To which Hillary responded, “When you put it like that, I’m going to change it.” She however quickly added that women should be able to celebrate both their personal and professional achievements quoting the late former First Lady Barbara Bush, who said: “At the end of the day, it won’t matter if you got a raise, it won’t matter if you wrote a great book, if you are not also someone who values relationships.

The internet is currently divided over the author’s comments. See some of the reactions below.

There were some who didn’t understand the backlash, as according to them, the author was merely asking a question.
