South Africans have taken to social networks to express outrage after an episode of Our Perfect Wedding featured a man, who boasted on camera about preying on young girls.
702's Xolani Gwala on Monday spoke to Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, who laid a complaint with the BCCSA in what she claims was irresponsible broadcasting by the production company and Mzansi Magic.
Listen to the interview below:
...Three to four girls a day and he'd target them after school... Does that not invoke something in you?— Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, Sexual and Reproductive Justice Coalition
...We are perpetuating rape culture, and rape culture is precisely what happened last night. You expose individuals to certain crimes and you are closing it and disguising it as entertainment.— Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, Sexual and Reproductive Justice Coalition
Meanwhile, 702 callers on Afternoon Drive with Xolani Gwala shared their thoughts on the matter.
Listen to the conversation below:
This is on prime time tv... It is shocking that the production company didn't see anything wrong by trying to edit that.— Khwezi, caller from Randburg
...But the other thing I noticed that I found interesting is that the young girl seemed to be more desperate to be with the guy.— Yolanda, caller from Northriding
