How SA Black Twitter Defended Lasizwe On The Homophobic Attacks After Speaking Out On The Zim Crisis! As we know, many celebrities and many South Africans at large have been showing support to the people of Zimbabwe using the #ZimbabweanLivesMatter hashtag.

Comedian and reality star Lasizwe was one of these celebrities who took initiative on twitter. “I STAND WITH ZIMBABWE“, Lasizwe tweeted in solidarity. In response, the tweet was met with homophobic attacks from a few Zimbaweans on twitter.

Lasizwe reacted to the homophobic tweets with disappointment saying, The homophobia I am currently experiencing from my fellow African brothers and sisters is heart breaking! We still have a long way to go for the LGBTQI community to be free in Africa!”

“Yoh! I really thought this homophobic thing wasn’t going to affect me but damn!… it got me hard! But I still stand with Zimbabwe! I wish for the violation of human rights in Zimbabwe to STOP and the rights of the LGBTQI+ to be treated equally! WE ARE HUMANS TOO,” he later added.
