We admire Sizwe Dhlomo for being one of Twitter’s most vocal users. However, it frequently gets him into problems, and he is now under fire for remarks he made regarding Slik Talk.
Following the historic boxing bout between Cassper Nyovest and Slik Talk, the Kaya 959 radio DJ, like many others, took to social media to express his thoughts. While everyone was applauding Cass or criticizing Slik Talk, Sizwe used the opportunity to give his fans some advice.
He addressed a letter to young guys encouraging them to take care of their bodies. He claimed it didn’t make sense for someone in their early twenties to look like Slik Talk and think they’d have a chance in a boxing battle.
The message sparked outrage on social media, which was fanned by individuals who stan the YouTuber. Sizwe going for his build, even though he doesn’t like him, didn’t sit well with them.
Tweeps have speculated that if he had said the same thing about a woman, Sizwe would have found up in serious trouble. They believe it is a double standard that he would get away with body shaming because he said it about a guy, particularly given he is a man who is disliked by many people.
He even cruelly body-shamed Kamo Mphela, saying she was too old and foolish to wear crop tops. He told her she looked pregnant, despite the fact that she wasn’t, and then went on to say a lot of hurtful things about her physique. Tweeps believe that Slik Talk’s body-shaming is retaliation and that he deserves it. Fans of Kamo Mphela regard it as vindication, and they will not forget what Slik said, despite the fact that he later recanted his remarks and apologized to Kamo.
