Somizi Motaung has said that he will not apologize to the journalists
Media personality Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung has said that he will not apologize to the journalists he doxed after he approached for comments.
It all started when Julia Madibogo of City Press approached the “Idols SA” judge for comment on allegations that he was divorcing his husband, Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo.
Responding via text to the request for comment, Somizi said: “Please make my year and write the story as I will sue the living hell out of you and your publication for this crap you are asking me….get your facts right or go join Sunday World”.
He then took a screengrab of the text and posted it on his Instagram account saying “So @city_press has become a tabloid…okay…two can play that game…”, he then went on to ask his followers to dial the journalist’s number.
Somizi also took aim at an editor at Sunday World, Kabelo Khumalo.
The “Somizi and Mohale: The Union“ star was approached for comment after allegations that production on his cooking show, ”Dinner at Somizi’s“, has been put on hold amidst legal proceedings instituted by Hastings Moeng
Although he has since deleted the posts, the South African National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) has called for action to be taken against the star saying he must unreservedly apologize to the journalists and the public on all his social platforms for his unbecoming behavior.
“I don’t have a problem with my stuff being out there but I have a problem when things are not factual.
“This journalist wrote a story that my marriage is on the rocks and that I found out my husband cheated on me with a married man who has kids and I am protecting this man.
“I have no idea what she is talking about.
“I am not apologizing for what I did. The only thing that I know I did wrong was to post her private number but I did that deliberately”, he said.
