Khanyi Mbau Slams ‘Rapey’ Trolls


Khanyi Mbau has taken to social media to call-out men who have rapist tendencies under women’s posts. The star is know for her thick skin, in fact many have drawn to the conclusion that she was born with it. She has faced the wrath of keyboard warriors but she still remains tall.

The reality TV star decided to ignite a conversation on Twitter with the aim of trying to find out why some men sexualise and troll women on social media, calling them weak.

“The level of abuse on Twitter is scary , I can only imagine what those with out thick skin deal with. The most alarming part is that it’s the Men that actually troll women and sexualize everything. Have men become this weak?!! ” she tweeted.

A tweep tried to defend his gender by saying the women who throw themselves at these men do not get the same treatment as the mean.

“When thirst traps are posted to lure the same men you’re silent because the women who’re posting at that time are benefiting from it. This is like you saying rich men lure young girls with money as if some aren’t throwing themselves at them. Strange smh,” he commented.

Khanyi downplayed his statement by likening it to men who rape victims but blame them for their “misconduct.”


The tweet from Khanyi comes a few days after she had publicly declared that she is ready to date again, but there is a certain criteria that is needed: handsome and rich!

This did not sit well with a lot of men who resorted to name calling whilst throwing insults at Khanyi.

Khanyi was ready for all of them and came for them guns blazing. Insults were hurled at her but she fought back.

Khanyi has probably experienced this treatment of being overly sexualized, but it was her daughter Khanukani who caught the heat. She posted a picture of her gushing over her child in school uniform. But that still did not stop men to fantisize over a 13-year-old.

Attempting to acknowledge Khanukani’s beauty, some men took it too far by sexualising her and made disturbing and inappropriate comments; comments that are not fit for a teenager.

Considering how women and children’s safety is disregarded in the country, many women requested that Khanyi takes down the picture of her daughter as it might pose a threat to her safety – especially because her schools’ information is vivid in the photo
