Actresses Thuso Mbedu and Flo Masebe have spoken out against the mistreatment of actors during the Covid-19 pandemic. According to Thuso, a certain actor tested positive and was written off the show he was working on.
The conversation began when Thuso was commenting on a Twitter thread by Florence Masebe. The veteran actress was talking about how her niece, who is an actress, was shamed for testing positive for Covid-19.
“I won't even go into how they shared her results with the entire cast on a WhatsApp group without her consent."
Thuso then revealed that an actor who tested positive was written off a production so they could continue filming.
“Kubi. It’s not fair"
Social media users were horrified by the conversation between the two actresses. Twitter user thandymatlaila said:
"Nooooooo... And then we blame these artists for keeping quiet."
"Flo this is happening so much. I'm still baffled by anybody thinking it's okay to share a person's results. Yoh."
"I'm really glad that you are speaking out about the injustices in this industry."
"That is sooo not right tjo. Where is the love, respect and right to privacy bathong. What have we become?"
"That's not ayoba at all."
"That doesn't sound right."
