The heat is rising in the MacG saga. It all started when the Radio Host was called out for making transphobic comments on his show- Podcast and Chill with MacG.
Celebrities and Mzansi's alike called him out on social media platforms and were quick to criticize. The radio presenter also had to deal with the consequence of losing a partnership with Old Mutual, the insurance giant who sponsored the show. And now MacG is lashing out.

The rant wasn’t pretty

The podcaster said he was positively put off by celebrities’ “biased cancel culture” and how they choose to call out wrongs based on who’s making the mistakes. The Podcast and Chill team did issue a public apology to the LGBTQI+ community for their discriminating comments but the drama is still sizzling away in the online neighborhood and with MacG’s latest rant, the dust is far from settling.

In the latest episode that went viral, MacG clapped back at celebrities who were quick to judge him, saying that when DJ Fresh was trending about rape allegations the week before, everybody stayed silent because they all in it for something.

“But they can say sh**t  about us because we’re nobodies”, the star said.

Mzansi and celebrity reactions were interesting though
What’s attention-grabbing are the reactions this rant is getting form celebrities and the Mzansi and it looks like MacG has more supporters in the matter than we imagined. This is because while many didn’t approve of his transphobic slurs, they couldn’t help but agree that the celebs are very selective about who they choose to call out in public.

TV presenter Lerato Kganyago and others gave him their full support.

Many also didn’t approve of MacG’s singling out of Thando Thabethe after the actress tweeted in disgust about his transphobic comments last month. But Thando, having seen why she was trending on twitter, held back a response to his rant and posted some laughing emojis instead.

And some still stick to their original opinions, criticizing the Podcast and Chill Show host for hiding behind the guise of being “ raw and unfiltered” and spreading LGBTQ phobia.

There’s no telling when this drama will end. The Podcast and Chill team refuse to back down and the online community is quick to react. Guess it’s a good thing everyone’s being honest!
