- The Dagga Party’s leader, Jeremy Acton, has landed himself in hot water following insults directed towards Olympic champion, Caster Semenya
- In a Facebook post, Acton, continuously referred to Semenya as “he” and labelled her a fraud
- He also called for Semenya to return all awards and prize money, but was later forced to delete the post due to the strong public reaction
The Dagga Party of South Africa automatically invokes a strong reaction in the country, but it’s leader, Jeremy Acton, took things to another level recently.
Iqela Lentsango’s leader posted a scathing social media attack on Olympic champion, Caster Semenya.
In his insulting Facebook post, Acton continuously referred to Semenya as “he” and claims she was a fraud.
Acton argues that her XY chromosomes and internal testes serve as proof of her being a male.
He added Semenya should return all of her prize money and titles.
Acton urged South Africans to “wake the f*** up” and to rather support real female athletes.
The Citizen reported that Acton removed the post within a few hours of posting it.
Briefly.co.za understands that Acton’s post was in reaction to an article entitled, “What No One Is Telling You About Caster Semenya: She Has XY Chromosomes.”
South Africans who were rubbed up the wrong way by Acton will welcome the fact that it is highly unlikely he’ll win a seat in parliament.
The Dagga Party weren’t registered in time for the elections.
