- A young woman recently rubbed local men up the wrong way after joking about fatherhood in Mzansi
- In the post, the lady basically made a comment about how many absent fathers there are in South Africa
- Soon many locals were in the comment section either accusing her of having daddy issues or defending her sense of humour
It is not a secret that South Africa has a high rate of single mothers. A young woman, who surely knows this, recently headed online to joke about how South African fathers run away from their children.
Her joke came after a short clip of a small family which consisted of a father, a mother and their child was shared online. In the clip, the family stands together and then runs away from the child as a joke.
"In South Africa, the dads run and never come back," the young woman commented about the funny clip.
Local men did not like her comment and were soon sharing angry opinions. Read a few of their interesting thoughts below:
"In South Africa, the child runs to look for the real father."
@Moeketsi_Styles sarcastically wrote:
"Khumbul'khaya haven't responded to your letters yet?"
"Men assuming * . The gender that ACTUALLY suffers from daddy issues and choose to never heal from it. Masterpiece is that they actually go on to contribute to their children having daddy issues"
"Again in SA a woman would shout until the father runs to no return"
"The runners caught feelings"
