Uncle Waffles has again defended herself against rumours that she is transgender, saying social media has left people feeling "entitled".

The amapiano DJ took to her Instagram stories to address the matter after pictures of her and her dancers at the Cotton Fest sparked rumours about her sexuality,

"When do you guys step back and evaluate? Why do you think conversations like these or saying things like these to strangers is normal? Social media has really made you all feel so entitled to s**t. Let's respect each other." 

She said people were taking advantage of celebs choosing to stay silent.

"You all are used to public figures having to keep quiet and be the bigger person and that being considered some sort of "maturity". That's made people on social media get away with being s**t individuals.

"Where do you get the audacity to say things like this? Then go on and show your transphobia through it? I don't usually say anything, but now a whole community is getting affected. Please, it's important to learn when you're overstepping."
