When sharing posts, caution has to be taken. It is always advisable to read through social posts before you decide to share them with your followers. Some Mzansi celebs have made mistakes that will haunt them for a life time.
It is not only important to correct typos, but to ensure that your messages do not contain any offensive comments or statement. If you do not care, then you are looking for a war.
Carelessness caused four celebrities in 2018 to have previous tweets come back and bite them! These three Mzansi celebs are haunted by their homophobic pasts.
When Cassper Nyovest was allegedly caught not wanted to take a photo with a fan that is gay, he responded denying having any problems with gay, bisexual people.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that it was soon after Matthew Whitehead spoke to TshisaLIVE saying that he had seen a 2012 post of Nyovet’s which gives the impression that he has a homophobic outlook, that Cassper’s past came back to haunt him.
This conclusion was drawn from a tweet six years ago which said that Frank Ocean shot a video having a male love interest. It went on to say that it is one thing to be gay but … well, we will leave it there.
Rapper Nadia Nakai learnt the hard way that because a tweet is no longer appearing at the top of a timeline, it certainly does not mean that it has been forgotten.
A tweet Nakai posted back in 2010, saw her apologising humbling in September for insulting the gay and lesbian community.
Commenting on a movie, Nakai wrote that it was all about a male mermaid, tagging it gay, and asked herself why she was watching it.
Starting out as a TV personality, Boity Thulo recently launch her new career as a rap artist. Again people on Twitter took upon themselves to go and dig into her past tweets coming up with some dirt.
Complaining about gay sh*t being shown on television shows, Thulo tweeted in 2009.
Responding to the comments, Thulo said she regrets what she did and those specific comments were made when she was still naïve, homophobic and still very young not knowing any better.
