Media personality and South African rapper Boity Thulo took to Twitter on Monday morning to issue an apology for homophobic tweets she made almost a decade ago.
This comes after a Twitter user dug up Boity’s old tweets that she tweeted almost 10 years ago.
In a series of tweets, the #WuzDat hitmaker is bashing some of the local soapies for showing gay couples.
“This dude is exactly like Senzo. How creepy. And I think he might be gay. Lord forbid. Death,” – the SA celeb made a reference to the former Generations actor Thami Mngqolo, who portrayed a gay man character.
In another tweet she wrote, “What is up with the gay shit on these soapies??” she also described the gay couples as “undecided lesbians” and “niggas sucking tongues”.
“A decade ago, I was naive, homophobic, young and didn’t know better. I was 19 and my views on sexuality were warped. We grow, our views change and we do better. It’s gut wrenching and embarrassing to see them now however I am not the same person I was 10 years ago,” – she tweeted.
“I’m very sorry to every person that felt offended by those tweets,” Boity Thulo wrote in an apologetic tweet.
