The latest episode of Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored saw the boisterous personality offer her sincere apologies to viewers for the offensive comments made on the previous episode.

Saturday night’s episode of Moja Love’s Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored, which aired on Saturday, 13 July 2019, saw the reality star address the controversy surrounding the notorious comments she made about the LGBTQ+ community, which caused viewers to appeal to Moja Love to cancel the show. In the scene where she addressed the comments, Zodwa sits front-facing, speaking to the audience directly. She later reposted the scene onto her Instagram on Sunday, 14 July 2019, with the caption stating, “I’m sorry”, followed by numerous heart emojis.

In the scene she states, “Fellow South Africans, Zodwa Wabantu fans. I would like to say, to every bisexual, transgender, gay… I would like to apologize from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it like that. No one must harass anyone.” She went on to quote a message from a friend, who explained the reasoning behind the backlash and how her words were misconstrued as homophobic.

Fans shared their opinions regarding her apology, with many offering their forgiveness whilst others remained firm in their disappointment. Lunathi Mcirha-Omhle Kilani stated, “[Regardless] of which party was wrong or not; or [from] which perspective Zodwa said it; the only thing I give gratitude to, is the fact that a sense of accountability and ensuring peace and tolerance has been shown”.

Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored airs on Saturdays at 20:00 on Moja Love, DStv channel 157.
