Once again, Phat Joe is causing upset with a comment he uttered on-air. The radio presenter is getting a lot of negative vibes from Mzansi after starting a debate on how men can be victims too. People felt his timing was just way off.
Phat Joe is known for causing controversy and he has done it again. This time, the Radio 2000 presenter rubbed South Africans the wrong way when he started a discussion on how men can also be victims of abuse.
People felt the debate may have had valid points, but the timing was terrible. There was also one caller with whom Joe interacted that ticked off listeners.
The caller claimed that 'women have too many rights' and Joe engaged with the man - this was not good according to the public.
Briefly.co.za noticed that Joe got the bad end of many insults after his show. Check out what some of the milder comments were:
Earlier this year, Joe was taken off-air after making remarks about gay men, and he got roasted after some negative comments about Anele Mdoda after she was chosen as one of the official judges for the 2019 Miss SA pageant.
He has since apologised.
Sometimes, it looks as if Joe excels at putting his foot in his mouth.
This debate comes on the same day that the #WithoutUs movement took place. The aim of the movement was to show men what SA would look like without women, and it very much talked-about throughout the country.
Local celeb, Bontle Modiselle, was a proud supporter of the idea, although she feared it would not do much to change things in Mzansi.
