Boity Thulo recently took to her Twitter timeline to issue
an apology for homophobic statements she made almost a decade ago.
In the series of since-deleted tweets which were resurfaced
by a tweep, the 28-year-old actress made derogative comments about homosexual
on screen couples,
“This dude is exactly like Senzo. How creepy,” she wrote,
making reference to the former Generations actor Thami
Mngqolo. She then went on to add “And I think he might be gay. Lord forbid.
In another tweet Boity wrote, “What is up with the gay shit
on these soapies??” she also described the gay couples as “undecided lesbians”
and “niggas sucking tongues”.
After coming under fire with many of her fans Boity admitted
in a recent tweet that a decade ago she was, “Naive, homophobic, young and
didn’t know better,” before adding that she was embarrassed about her warped
views on sexuality.
“I’m very sorry to every person that felt offended by those
tweets,” Boity wrote in an apologetic tweet.
