Johannesburg - Sonke Gender Justice on Tuesday expressed concern over some of the negative comments shared online on Bongekile "Babes Wodumo" Simelane's video depicting her alleged assault at the hands of her boyfriend Mampintsha.
On Monday morning, Simelane live-streamed what appeared to be an argument between her and Mampintsha, real name Mandla Maphumulo, during which the latter can be seen hitting Simelane repeatedly. The video sparked outrage and calls for the Big Nuz star to be arrested.
Simelane has since laid charges at the Westville police station in Durban.
Sonke Gender Justice in a statement said it was concerned by some of the reactions to the video.
"Sonke notes Simelane has received criticism for her decision to share the alleged abuse via Instagram Stories.
