South African media personality, Somizi Mhlongo, is the latest celebrity to join in the global challenge which aims to highlight women who are supporting women. However, seeing as the Somizi is a man, his participation did not sit well with some of his fans, who called him out for discrediting the meaning behind the challenge.
The video showed Somizi dressed in full-on drag, complete with a dramatic wig and corset dress. He added a black and white filter as part of the challenge and captioned it with, “#challengeaccepted thanks @moneoa for nominating me…..I dedicate this post too all the women of the world.”
Dominque Coleman commented with, “I’m a fan. But this is not cool. You are not a women, you don’t understand the struggle. This is like a white person taking part in a black-only challenge. Wouldn’t fly would it?”.
What do you think about Somizi joining in?
