LOCAL Afrikaans artist Jay du Plessis has landed in hot water after he decided to weigh-in on the fashion industry moving away from gender norms.
Over the weekend, Twitter user @DaanBarnard decided to give his opinion on the current state of the fashion industry and said: “This is called ’fashion’ in the 21st-century. If there were a time machine I wouldn’t even think twice to go and live in the ’50s.
“This place is whacked and I have a suspicion it will only get worse.”
The “Afrikaans Is Groot Temalied” singer decided to weigh in on the matter and said: “Disturbing, to say the least. At least I’m raising my 4 boys Afrikaans.
“They are more manly as children than these ’men’ Woke = broke.“
Tweeps quickly pointed out that Du Plessis was a part of a boy band, Eden, where he dressed in what would be considered as being more feminine for the time.
Twitter user @fagtanica also pointed this out and said: “You were literally the most feminine member of a boy band.”
To which du Plessis replied: “You’re completely out of touch radical f*gg*t. Go play”.
Du Plessis got called out by another user for using the f-slur since he is not a part of the LGBTQI+ community and said:
“Sorry, where is this ‘radical f*gg*t’ coming from? Why is this being said? Am I missing something or is this 100% a slur that people are just ignoring?”
