Reality TV star Lasizwe Dambuza has ruffled furthers with his recent controversial tweet about a new television show. Commenting on a Moja Love’s new reality show, “Teenage Pregnancy,” the star alluded to the situation being a result of the teenagers’ promiscuous behaviour.
This show on Moja Love called #TeenagePregnancy so interesting bathong! Nihamba ni lala! (you like sleeping around),” tweeted Lasizwe. The reality show follows the lives of three teenage girls, who are dealing with the realities of teenage pregnancy.
The trio shares their experiences, challenges and fears as they prepare for their journey to motherhood.
The “Fake It Till You Make It“ star retracted the statement and deleted the post following a massive backlash from social media users after it was discovered that one of the pregnant girls was a victim of rape.
Lasizwe went on to apologise for his “insensitive and irresponsible” statement.
“Guys I realize that my foolish statement may have rubbed people the wrong within reason due to GBV, I apologize for coming across insensitive and irresponsible with that being said I retract my statement,” Lasizwe wrote.
