- Somizi Mhlongo flew to Gqeberha so he could show support to Lulu Ntuthela's family and the LGBTQI community
- Lulu was brutally murdered and it is believed that he had been killed because of his sexuality - he was gay
- Social media users are impressed with Somizi for showing support to the cause and the grieving family
Media personality Somizi Mhlongo took a flight to Gqeberha so he could show support to Lulu Ntuthela's family. Lulu was allegedly attacked and murdered for being gay. Since he is also part of the LGBTQI community, Somizi wants to be there for Lulu's family. He tweeted:
"Flew to Gqeberha this morning to give support to the family of the brutally murdered member of our LGBTIQ+ fam LULU... I'll be back on the 1st June for the court hearing."
Somizi feels that he needs to show his support as a public figure and is doing his best to show up for the LGBTQI community. Mzansi social media users have been outraged because of what happened and have been tweeting about the incident since it happened.
The man who allegedly murdered Lulu was admitted to a psychiatric centre and was diagnosed with a mental condition. Shortly afterwards, he was arrested and detained for malicious damage to property.
Twitter user @kaymane19 is impressed with Somizi for his gesture and dragged Mzansi celebrities for not being present for issues that happen in Mzansi. He commented:
"Big ups to you SomG, unlike your fellow celebrity influencers who are so mute about things happening in the country but are quick to post about things happening in America."
Briefly News previously reported that Mzansi celebrities raised awareness for bullying amid disturbing events.
After seeing a student get bullied and commit suicide for being part of the LGBTQ+ community, celebrities felt the need to make it known that love is love and this nonsense needs to stop.
From Boity Thulo to Mmusi Maimane, some of the biggest influential faces in Mzansi took to social media to have their say. What is happening is not okay and society needs to reevaluate itself. You cannot bully someone into suicide just because of who they choose to love.
