DJ MacG lives a war of criticism for his racist remarks

MacG, who hosts Podcast and Chill with MacG, and radio host and friend Sol Phenduka were chatting about their “confusion and misunderstandings” regarding the LGBTQI+ community. Sol had some questions on why transgender women transition if they’re interested in women.

“You are getting to have a chance just to be with women? Now she’s lesbian. Why can’t you only be a person and be with a woman?” asked Sol.

MacG said he “can’t keep up” when it involves the trans identity. They then discussed celebrities who have allegedly dated transgender women. The hosts were joking around and laughing about ‘the logistics’ of being a trans woman.

“So a trans woman, a lady with a d*CK,” said Sol.

The hosts were also making light of their conversation, with laughs all around.

Twitter caught wind of the comments and hit back at the podcasters. Many accused MacG and Sol of being transphobic and against LGBTQI+ people with their comments.

“I’m so uninterested in people and their causal violence towards trans people. what’s so hard about leaving people alone?! How has any trans person’s existence affected you in any way? Y’all are vile for fun and it literally gets people killed,” wrote one tweep.

Founder of LGBTQI+ Feather Awards Thami Kotlolo also hit back at the comments, calling on the sponsors of the podcast and letting MacG know they “need to talk”.

Despite several attempts by TshisaLIVE to urge comment from MacG, didn’t respond by the time of publishing. this text is going to be updated should comment be received.

Here are a number of the reactions from Twitter:

However, Macy’s supporters came to his defense. Fans said that no matter their ‘unfiltered’ comments, they still love him.

This isn’t the primary time the podcast host has come under attack for his comments on the LGBT+ community.

In 2010, the star began the air on station YFM for enjoying clips of Ugandan chairman of the National Task Force against homosexuality Pastor Martin Ssempa fuming about “sodomy and homosexuality being forbidden in Uganda”.

Listeners complained that the audio clips incited homophobia and hate speech.
