#ZodwaCancelled:Pantless dancer Zodwa Wabantu under fire over comments about gay guys

Zodwa Wabantu, the popular pantless dancer is back in the news again over her comment about gay guys, days after showing off more than usual at the Durban July event.

 

The dancer has been dragged on social media over her comment in an episode of her reality show which aired last weekend. Zodwa had taken a dig at South African gay celebrities, who she said have all had a fight with female celebrities even though they accomodate them more. Highlighting her opinion on the stereotypical characteristics of homosexual men, she said;

“Gay people are naughty. Name a gay person in the industry who has never fought with a girl. They are convinced that they have a vagina, they have a penis. We have vaginas. We accommodate you guys so that you feel that you get to wear makeup. When we talk about me, you’ll get a chance too.”

Is Zodwa WaBantu’s homophobia and transphobia gonna remain unchecked?

28 people are talking about this

Reacting to her claims, Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela wrote;

 “You teach people how to treat you. Ya’ll worship hetero celebs too much! We are the only country in the world that has a LGBTQI awards event that literally serves to praise straight people for just being famous. People who have done nothing for the community. And you ban gays!” While actor Nokuthula Mavuso said: “Before a show goes on air, the tape goes through so many people for approval. Nobody, absolutely nobody thought ‘this is not it,’? @MojaLoveTv and Zodwa Uncensored should also be called out.”

Hate speech starts with these kinds of attention-seeking histrionics.

Zodwa just set feminism back a good couple decades.

Slow clap👏🏽#LBGTQ rights are human rights, not special rights.#ZodwaCancelled #ZodwaUncensored

At the same time though we grew up with these kinds of statements. ESalon this was the standard line I’ve learnt it is problematic but I don’t believe Zodwa intended it as hate speech. If she were to learn it & continue then I will have to concede. I hope she learns.

The problem is she has no restrictions to what she can or can not say and sadly we promote it with without realising that we having children been subjected to this…I wonder how long it’s gonna take to realize that she is a rotten apple spoiling a whole lot of us #ZodwaCancelled

Don’t downplay Zodwa’s homophobic violence. Anyone with any kind of platform should be smart enough to use it responsibly. If they aren’t, disconnect their microphone #zodwacancelled

Homophobia doesn’t have to claim a life to be considered homophobia. @Zodwa_Wabantu – your comments were not only homophobic in nature, buh they were transphobic too considering the existence of gay trans men with vaginas!!! #ZodwaCancelled 🙅🏽‍♂️🚫 https://twitter.com/passeks/status/1147576101784444929 

P.M.@Passeks

Ehhh Zodwa. The homophobia jumped out. 💀 #ZodwaUncensored

Non-negotiable.

Freedom doesn’t come free. Freedom comes with responsibility. Freedom of expression cannot exist without freedom of dignity. Gay rights are human rights. 🏳️‍🌈
