Boity speaks after alleged photo of her private party surfaced online


Boity at South African Music Awards

South African actress and Television presenter Boitumelo Thulo known widely as Boity and for her role as Mpho Bogatsu on Mzansi Magic’s Rockville has finally spoken on the alleged photo of her ‘vajayjay’ that hit the internet on Saturday June 4 2016 during the South African Music Awards held at the ICC Durban.

The 22 years old who refused to comment on the issue that night on Monday morning in a series of tweets expressed dissatisfaction about the picture and how many have sought to demean her. According to her, many believe her line of work keeps her from commenting on the issue but she couldn’t keep silent since she’s not a robot but a human being who has feelings.

Read her tweets as put together by

“OF COURSE I have to defend myself from all the harsh things I have been reading about my dress and the negative sexual connotations created.

All created in the attempt of demeaning me. How can I not defend myself? I’m not a robot. I am a human being who has feelings.

And to pretend that what I’ve been reading has no effect on me is a blatant lie.

We are always told to “not say anything because you’re in the public eye”, “Let them talk but don’t respond.” Well…

My line of work does not make my feelings immune to the negative words I read. And when necessary, I will respond.

The picture going around of my “supposed private parts” was created/photoshopped by people who revel in cyber bullying…

It was also created for the sake of trying as hard as possible to guilt a woman into feeling like she has no control over her body.

I’m truly disappointed as I’ve realized that most of the shaming comes from fellow women. It baffles me.

This is a fight we should be fighting together in order for society to break the chains of controlling how women should look, feel, behave..

I can’t possibly be fighting for how I want to look. Feeling imprisoned, enslaved in my own body?

I cannot and I will not allow your projection to force me into disliking MY body, how I treat it and how I dress it up.

The obsession and double standards of the female body/anatomy, what should be done to it and how it should be treated is exhausting.

I will not wear something that does not satisfy me for the sake of pleasing people who are angry at how comfortable I am in my skin.

I encourage and stand for women to dress as they please, in whatever they feel comfortable and good in.

You do not share your body with anyone. It is not your business to please someone else because of their own discomforts.

If I have a problem with my thighs, my breasts, my ass, my legs, my scars, my hair…let me be the one to worry about them.

Please stop encouraging the behaviour of making your anger and projection another person’s problem.

Stop encouraging women to feel enslaved by who you think they should be instead of allowing genuine freedom of self-expression.

Stop policing how women should dress. My body and how I dress it should not effect you in any way. It does no harm to anyone.

How are we still this uncomfortable and ignorant about something as natural as the human body?

We do not share the body nor do we make a joint effort in clothing it and taking care of it.

I will personally dress as I please, I will express myself the way I see fit and I encourage everyone to do the exact same.
