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.

When confronted by another Twitter user, who is also a victim of rape, Lasizwe apologised again and offered to pay for therapy for them.

He said: “I am offering to pay for your counselling… DM me your details and let’s see how I can help you. I am so sorry.”
