- Popular radio host Phat Joe has walked away from his most recent radio gig on Radio 2000
- This move was met with disappointment from his fans who adored hearing him every day
- It is believed by Phat Joe's followers that there is more to his resignation than meets the eye
SABC has announced that Phat Joe, the popular and cheeky radio host, has resigned from his work at Radio 2000.
He has been with the station for less than a year after starting in April 2019, bringing listeners his breakfast show, 'Phat Joe and The Family'.
Peeps are not happy and think there's is a lot more to the resignation. Some think that Joe was told to leave because of his unfiltered mouth, and others are sure he left because he was being censored.
Joe has gotten himself into hot water with the things he says more than once. Briefly.co.za reported previously that he was 'unscheduled' after making comments about the LGBTIQ+ community.
The radio personality had asked listeners to share their thoughts regarding Zodwa Wabantu comments about gay people on her reality TV show.
In the episode, Zodwa made comments about gay people being too dramatic and “forgetting that they don’t have vaginas”. He added his own views on the debate and allegedly asked why gay men would not accept how difficult it is “for most people to accept their lifestyle”.
There was also the heat he got for his remarks about Anele Mdoda. Joe expressed that he believes that Anele only got the gig because of the colour of her skin, not because she knew anything about being pretty or a Miss SA.
"Anele Mdoda's appointment as Miss SA 2019 judge panel is affirmative action, just to balance the equation, she knows she doesn’t deserve the position, how is she gonna justify her judgement?"
These, and many other instances, is what has peeps believing Joe left the radio station unhappy in some way or another.
