Thando Thabethe has reported on the insults that have been hurled at her after she shared her thoughts on human rights.
According to her, she recently spoke out against hate speech towards g*y and transgender people because she strongly believes in the rights to respect and fair treatment for all people and wanted to give voice to this important issue.
However, she is deeply concerned about the subsequent insults and petty, albeit unsuccessful, attempts to disparage my nearly 12 years in the TV and FILM industry in response to my position on these human rights.
The post she made on Twitter reads;
“I recently spoke out against hate speech towards homosexual and t*********l people. I believe strongly in the rights, to respect and fair treatment, for all human beings, and I wanted to give voice to this important issue.
I am deeply concerned by the subsequent insults and petty, albeit unsuccessful, attempts to belittle my almost 12 years in the TV and FILM industry in response to my position on these human rights.
The personal attacks and even the resorting to “posting nudes” deserve nothing but my contempt and as such, really are of no real importance in my life.
However, what is hurtful is the attempt to minimise the work so close to my heart, that which I do for vulnerable women and children.
I am a founder not a “face”of an organisation that has, over the years, raised almost half a million rands towards combatting violence against women and children in SA.
Just so it is clear… I stand firmly by @nampree and should it not have been clear I am utterly Disappointed by the re-victimisation of @Nampree I BELIEVE YOU.. Should you need any assistance emotionally or financially let it be clear I stand by you.”
