MacG under fire for ‘out of line’ comments about Boity
While MacG is known for his unpredictable and often unfiltered comments about SA celebs, his recent comments about TV personality Boity Thulo resulted in him receiving a backlash on Twitter.
The Podcast and Chill host landed on the SA Twitter trends list alongside Boity after he released a video clip of him taking part in a question-type feature in which he had to answer if he would “marry, f**k or kill” a certain celeb.
In the caption of the clip, MacG said the crowd had asked him who he would marry, have sex with or kill if his only choices were Bonang Matheba, Boity and Thando Thabethe.
In the clip the podcast host immediately said he would marry Bonang. He hesitated between his two remaining options when asked who he would have sex with. MacG’s co-host Sol was surprised by the hesitation, knowing how MacG has slammed Thando in the past and implied that “killing Thando” seemed like an obvious option.
That’s when MacG made the “distasteful” comment about Boity.
“The problem is everyone has f***** Boity,” MacG said and everyone around laughed out loud.
When TshisaLIVE reached out to Boity’s management for comment on the matter, her manager Bash said they did not wish to comment at the moment.
After the video made its way to Twitter, many slammed the comments".
“Watching these clout chasing acts in disbelief. Is this us ? Not like this bafethu,” Cassper tweeted as MacG and Boity trended.
Others felt MacG’s comments were fuelled by a grudge he’s holding against the TV presenter-turned-rapper because she’s been blue-ticking his invites to have her as a guest on his show.
This after MacG explicitly said Boity was ignoring his invites and that the rapper always gave him excuses like she has not got time when confronted about the invite.
However, a few fans defended MacG, saying “what’s the point of having podcast if the guy can’t say what he feels?”.
Here are some of the reactions from Twitter:
Watching these clout chasing acts in disbelieve. Is this us ? Not like this bafethu.— Don Billiato (@casspernyovest) April 19, 2021
There's freedom of speech and there's disrespect, that MacG comment on Boity was out of line. Mad disrespectful.— Mnisi But Not Rich (@MnisiJulius) April 19, 2021
That guy needs to respect himself and other people for people to respect him.
What MacG said about Boity is disgusting. That was a vile comment. A lot of women walk around with self-esteem issues because of such comments, some go as far as committing suicide or having to relocate from one neighborhood to another. We grew up in the hood, we’ve seen this.— Tshepo Ranko (@Tshepo_Ranko) April 20, 2021
