Good Hope FM radio personality, Celeste Mitchell, has found herself in hot water after a screenshot of a remark that’s been seen as homophobic made the rounds on social media.
A Facebook user by the name of Antonio Maggot Watson first posted a picture of what appears to be a male model wearing a white crop top from ASOS, a British online fashion retailer.
The post includes his caption: “1st skinny jeans and now this shit? Are they trying to take our manhood away next? If any of my family or friends wears shit like this, you are no longer a friend of mine.”
Mitchell then shared the post and, to make matters worse, added her own dubious and potentially homophobic views on the matter, writing: “We are indeed living in the end of times”.
She later deleted her post, but screenshots of the comment soon started circulating on social media – and it was not well received.
Brandan Fix, the radio station’s manager, told Mambaonline that the matter is being investigated but otherwise had no other comment.
Mitchell was also unavailable for comment at the time of publication.
