Cape Town - Radio and TV personality Phat Joe was not on his Radio 2000 Breakfast Show Phat Joe and the Family on Thursday following what most deemed to be homophobic comments he made during the show on Wednesday.
The radio host allegedly said that he "doesn’t understand why gays can’t accept that it's difficult for most people to accept their lifestyle."
This didn’t sit well with the gay community and they expressed themselves on social media.
Following this, Phat Joe was not present on his show on Thursdayand had David Mashabela stand in for him without any explanation about happened to Joe.
Vuyo, however, did confirmed that: "The SABC is aware [of Joe’s comments/the outcry] and are currently investigating the matter."
Phat Joe is no stranger to controversy or being fired from radio stations for his comments.
