Somizi's hubby and actor Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo took to Twitter to remind fans that keeping your mask on at all times isn't as offensive as some make it out to be.

The star addressed the issue that he has been noticing in his social life. With the lockdown in full swing and society getting used to the daily use of face masks, the star shared his observations.

Mohale said that he doesn't understand why people are offended that he keeps his mask on as it is a guideline stipulated by the NICD.

He went on the mention that people try to justify keeping their masks off but man, it's the middle of a pandemic!

“I don’t get this thing of people being offended by you having your mask on — they’ll be like 'We don’t have COVID, take off your mask' ... or 'You don’t trust us'. Please No!” wrote Mohale.

Fans could totally relate to the star, with many saying that they have also met some peeps out there who just don't take the pandemic seriously enough.

Here are some the tweeps' thoughts on the whole 'when to wear a mask' debacle:

Mohale isn't afraid to get real and candid with his fans. Earlier this year, the star received backlash after landing a gig on Rhythm City. Tweeps claimed that the star got the job because of his famous S.O. Somizi.

The star addressed the matter on Trending SA.

“To be honest, in the beginning when people used to share their thoughts about what I do and where I go, it used to bother me and hurt me,”

“Now about the Rhythm City gig, people expect me to not do anything simply because I am married to a famous person. I can't blame myself for getting married to Somizi and that must now not mean I shouldn't pursue any opportunity simply because people are going to say Somizi got them for me,” he said.
