Cape Town - Local entertainer Zodwa Wabantu has made a public apology following the controversial statements she made about the LGBTQ community on her reality show.
"I walked around naked and I don’t want to be abused, and you also don’t deserve to be abused" she said on the show.
The repercussions of Zodwa’s actions stretched wide and she was subsequently stripped off the Drama Queen of The Year award that she received in 2017 at the Feather Awards.
The apology comes also after the show received negative comments from the viewers and media personalities such as: Mohale Motaung and Somizi Mhlongo.
LGBTQ advocacy group, Johannesburg Pride, in a statement demanded that MultiChoice suspend the Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored series on Moja Love "with immediate effect".
"The MultiChoice Group distances itself from the commentary made by Zodwa Wabantu on independent channel Moja Love. It is important to note that, as Moja Love is an independent third-party channel, MultiChoice Group does not exercise editorial control over their broadcast."
