MacG’s latest Podcast And Chill episode sees him discussing the recent controversy surrounding his utterances, as well as why celebrities such as Thando Thabethe felt it necessary to weigh in on the matter.
MacG’s latest episode of his YouTube series, Podcast And Chill, premiered on Monday, 8 February 2021. The episode saw the media personality speaking out about his recent controversy, which saw him being labelled transphobic by some because of his utterances in a recent podcast episode. The Monday night video saw MacG expressing his outrage at the cancel culture on Twitter, as well as how some celebrities jumped on the bandwagon as a way to stay relevant and trend on social media.
In particular, MacG spoke out about Thando Thabethe, who was amongst the many celebrities who lambasted him for his comments. He shared that he recently saw the viewership numbers for her podcast, TV&R, which he described as dismal because no one wants to listen to her, according to him. MacG then went on to reduce her career to her revealing images on social media, suggesting that her popularity is based on her looks and not her talent.
Thando’s fans shared their outrage at the host, with some accusing him of trying to shift the negative attention to someone else from himself. Others felt that he was being disrespectful to a working woman, and that he needed to be reprimanded for his utterances. One user tweeted, “Thando Thabethe is booked and busy and him? He doesn’t have a career. He said Thando was moved to graveyard, but he was fired. The jokes write themselves.”
