Some Twitter users have also accused the LGBTQI community of being tight-lipped about Boity and Bujy’s incident.
Here’s how social media has reacted:
@ShadayaKnight “The war is against straight men NOT gender-based violence….Somizi free as a bird….Bujy free as well….wake up straight black men, we are an endangered species, they want to see you either broke, in jail or dead. Masculinity is under attack”
@JasonKhumalo2 “Boity was allegedly hit on the face with a bottle by Bujy. This happened a week ago and no GBV activists called for the cancelling of anybody. Mara had it been, say Cassper that allegedly hit Boity, Cassper would be cancelled by now. The standards are just double.”
@landback_ “When Mohale ALLEGED domestic violence against Somizi everyone was against Somizi and he was removed from idols. When Bujy Bikwa ACTUALLY assaulted (to death) Boity there is silence. Everytime foreigners rape, assault or kill ..nobody calls them trash! Amakwerekwere r lucky!”
@jessy_jessss “Mohale didn’t get the support he needed from the masses, people even tagged idols pleading with them to bring Somizi back but were very much okay when Katlego basically lost jobs.”
@joy_zelda “Somizi was said to have attacked Mohale while still in a relationship he was called to be cancelled,even on #idolssa he was removed,today Bujy Buji has done the same to Boity everybody muted LGBTI community MacG too why so”
In a twist of events Bujy, released a statement and said he has opened a case of common assault against “the culprit” for physically attacking him.
“After being in pain from the injuries I sustained for 7 days, being held in police custody, I have received medical attention and have filled my medical records towards my counter case.”
