Natasha Thahane has released a video coming to the defence of her boyfriend, Thembinkosi Lorch, in light of Orlando Pirates’ loss to Kaizer Chiefs this past weekend.
Natasha Thahane took to Twitter on Monday, 2 August 2021, to share a TikTok video reflecting on the Carling Black Label Cup final. The match took place on Saturday, 31 July 2021, with Orlando Pirates losing to Kaizer Chiefs 4-3 during the penalties. Thahane was elected as the mascot of Orlando Pirates, which the public believes to be a result of her relationship with striker, Thembinkosi Lorch. Therefore, after the loss, Thahane received backlash as it was suggested that she was to blame for his supposed loss of form.
Thahane’s post reflected on the loss through an excerpt from Skeem Saam. In the clip, Thahane rates the performance of the Orlando Pirates players, with the only person to receive the highest mark being Lorch. Soccer fans immediately called out the supposed bias of the Blood & Water actress. Soccer aficionados suggested that the biggest contributing factor to the loss of the team was the bad form that Lorch was supposedly in.
