Thandiswa King and Langa Mavuso have raised their voices in support of LGBTQI+ community against Podcast king, Mac G.
Mac G has been trending since Tuesday morning due to an episode of his podcast, where he was seen making some transphobic jokes.
While a few persons condemned him saying he made derogatory comments, others defended him.
Instead of trying to cancel MacG, the LGBTQI+ community should be using this as an educational moment to teach people what's offensive and what's not. cause I honestly can't see the offense in this video https://t.co/Z8rdAmSpnn— Mntungwa (@Sandile_K14) January 26, 2021
However, Thandiswa a.k.a King Tha and Langa expressed their dissappointment in Mac G and how he's negatively used his platform.
"Transphobia and homophobia is violence. the lives of trans people matter. when platforms like MACG's podcast invalidate their existence with 'jokes' & derogatory terms many intolerant people feel comfortable to violate & endanger those lives too. it is dangerous & intolerable, singer Langa tweeted.
"Dear straight person. Don't talk about us (queer people) on public platforms without us being present to speak for ourselves. There is a lot you don't know or understand so it's best to seek education rather than talk from ignorance. #TransLivesMatter," Thandiswa tweeted.
Aparthied was a “normal” part of society, in fact it was law (which informs what is deemed as right in society) but that doesn’t mean it was okay. Stop trying validate BS because it’s a norm to you. https://t.co/VCBwpCrTmr— Langa Mavuso (@LangaMav) January 26, 2021
