MacG stands accused of being a “homophobe” and Thuso Mbedu is being dragged for that hogwash.
“I deleted a previous post as it seems to have offended some. I didn’t know why so I went to someone that I trust & who I knew could give me better insight. Others chose to educate me and it’s out of care and respect for them that I deleted my post,” said Thuso Mbedu.
Additionally, Thuso Mbedu said “Please note, “Delete this” and throwing side comments doesn’t educate anyone on anything & as a result, little to nothing is changed.”

A cancel culture clown by the name of Melusi Dhlamini said that Thuso Mbedu is a Hollywood star and will be held to the same standards.
“Thuso Mbedu knows. She’s choosing to interact with tweets that agree with her and ignoring those correcting her. A homophobe. This could go south very quickly. She’s now a Hollywood star and will be held to the same standards. Someone needs to talk to her. Now,” said the cancel culture clown.
