- Anele Mdoda took to social media to ask journalists to put in more of an effort when looking for a comment
- Anele said that she doesn't understand why journalists text celebrities for information like they are friends
- Mzansi social media users weighed in with their comments, with most of them disagreeing with her statement
Anele Mdoda is the latest Mzansi celebrity who has taken a jab at journalists. Earlier this week, Somizi got into hot water with SANEF and Simphiwe Dana showed support to him as well.
Over the weekend, two journalists contacted Somizi for a comment on his marriage and the legal proceedings regarding his show, Dinner at Somizi's. Anele has now given her opinion on the situation.
"This thing of journalists only wanting to text to find out what's happening in our personal lives like we are friends will result in someone losing an eye," said Anele.
Anele went on to say that if the journalists really want to get some information, they have to put in more of an effort.
She made examples by saying that they should rather hunt down the story using helicopters or staking out in a tree if they really want to know.
A few Mzansi social media users commented on Anele's post, sharing their take on what she was saying. Take a look at the reactions below:
"A se mo States mo, save for anything but I don't see journalists doing stake-outs in trees for SA celebrities when we can literally run into ya'll at Woolies and still not ask for autographs and pictures."
"There's nothing "private" about Somizi's marriage. It was splashed all over the media, broadcast on TV. The word "privacy" is used by celebrities when news is uncomfortable. That's convinient. If something is private, it's private - whether uncomfortable or not."
"You want journalists to stalk you? You want them to print their conjectures based on what they saw instead of confirming the truth? Is it not better and safer for you and your family if they just ask you straight up?"
"Funny because when it suits you regardless of being friends with them, you call them right inside your houses because it's all about ching ching but the negative publicity part of of it, you don't like."
