Why are you asking for an audience with homophobes? They won't like you even if you give them a platform to bash us https://t.co/yGtHee7iax— Mega Mind (@tshwaaz) May 31, 2020

The biphobia and homophobia has jumped in the comments. Whenever a man cheats on his woman partner with another man, it is often— Lindile Zanyiwe Ndwayana 🇿🇦 (@ndinguLindile) May 31, 2020
assumed the guy is gay. But what if he is just bisexual and is not struggling with his sexuality? Bisexuality is here and it exists. https://t.co/huGmfAt0qX
At some point you're going to have to realize your role and responsibility as gay black man in this country.— Tshepiso Modupe (@blkmotswana) June 1, 2020
It's not enough that you're openly gay, when you also use stereotypes attached to black woman as a comedy. When you also use your page as a space for Homophobia.
Homophobes are going to have a field day with this tweet. Smh 🤦🏽♀️— Lebogang (@Ley_Mokotedi) May 31, 2020
