The actor wrote:

Just walked inside a garage and the guy standing next in line greets me like ‘Eyy ke wena rapist ya #SkeemSaam’. Kinda felt something inside hey. I’m just an actor bro,” writes Buthelezi.

In the storyline, Toby took advantage of his girlfriend Ntswaki (Lethabo Mekoa) when she had a change of heart about being intimate with him.She conveniently “misses” calls from the Maputlas and casually informs Toby that she needs to head home. However, her unsuspecting boyfriend proceeds with the plan, completely unaware of her age and without obtaining her consent.

Viewers of the show reassured the actor that being “harassed” by fans for their character is actually a compliment, as it shows how convincing their performance is.

Sicelo’s co-star Hellen Motsuki, who portrays Melita on the show, has unfortunately faced unwarranted criticism from certain viewers of the educational soapie. These individuals, in a rather unkind manner, labelled her as a home wrecker in public.

Fans show their support

@NtlharhiSambo: “I thought about how you are being perceived after tecent scenes. it’s a very sensitive topic with hardly any faces to it and a huge sacrifice in order to educate others. I don’t know you IRL but so proud of you for getting us talking about it so much!

@sharon_dikeledi: “Milita once said a woman hit her with a trolley and said “o cheate’r le Mr Kgomo wena”?”

@purple01leopard: “You’re crushing it. Obakeng from e.tv Scandal! used to be insulted for DV because he triggered people with his performance. Job well done.”

@AfrikanChefZA: “At least you didn’t get slapped like Pamela Nomvete for her role as Ntsiki Lukhele.”

@Timothy1923: “They don’t remember the brilliant “Teddy” but a character that will stick with you for some time now.”
