Another drama in “radioville”. If you thought DJ Fresh’s suspension which led to his firing was dramatic, Phat Joe has also joined the party after his allegedly offensive comment about the LGBTIQ+ community on Radio 2000 show ‘Phat Joe and the Family’.
According to TshisaLIVE SABC has confirmed that the radio host has been “unscheduled until further notice” due to his comment regarding the topic.
This topic was picked up from Zodwa Wabantu’s reality show when the Vosho queen spoke about how dramatic gay people are., which led to a big debate on social media.
Joe took this topic to his radio show asking his listeners for their views regarding this. He then went on to add his personal comment and said how disgusting homosexuals are.
“I don’t understand why they (gays) can’t accept that it’s difficult for most people to accept their lifestyle,” he said.
SABC spokesperson Vuyo Mthembu said: “The SABC can confirm that Phat Joe has been unscheduled until further notice. This is a matter between the employer and employee, and we cannot comment further at this stage”.
Social media went crazy as Mzansi demanded that Joe get a suspension.
