Lalla Hirayama was forced to address the rape accusation against her ex, Chris Nkosi - she opened up about the abuse she suffered while in a relationship with him. Comedian Jason Goliath dragged her into a mess with a social media post in which he tagged her.
Popular presenter, Lalla Hirayama, received a lot of support after she had opened up about very private matters from her past.
Comedian, Jason Goliath, basically called Lalla out for being aware of the abuse that her ex, Chris Nkosi's wife suffered at his hands and she responded by issuing a lengthy and detailed statement.
Most people felt that Jason was wrong to drag Lalla in - she isn't the one accused of rape, after all.
Following this, celebs rushed to Lalla's defence, and they were not at all impressed with the comedian.
Briefly.co.za gathered that ladies like Thando Thabethe, Boity Thulo and Dineo Moeketsi all had nothing but love for Lalla.
Their feelings towards Jason are a lot colder, to put it mildly.
Thando didn't approve of Jason's apology:
Meanwhile, protesters, including rape victims, got the shock of their lives when they were confronted by an offensive male municipal employee.
IOL reported that a male employee of the Msunduzi Municipality had told participants in a march against woman abuse to move out of his way, allegedly referring to them as 'sluts'.
With behaviour like this, South Africa has a painfully long way to go before women will get the proper treatment they deserve.
