Katlego Maboe and his girlfriend Monique Muller revealed this week that they are expecting, but not all his fans were jumping for joy
The Expresso presenter shared their baby news in a sweet post on Instagram on Wednesday.
“We are excited to announce that there will be a new addition to our family. Thanks to everyone who has wished us well and continues to pray for our little prince’s safe arrival #ProudParents #June2018 #BunInTheOven” he wrote.
Instead of sending messages of congratulations, some of Katlego’s fans commented on social media that they thought he was gay, while others slammed “black brothers bonking white chicks”.
The comments didn’t go unnoticed by Monique, who took the time to respond to several haters on Facebook
“Food for thought… I did not ask for any of this. If you see one of the other girls comments. You will notice Kat has previously removed all our pictures which I asked him to do. If you’re wondering why, because I don’t like seeing things like this,” she wrote.
Monique, who was called irrelevant by one Facebook user, explained why they went public with their pregnancy.
“I’m happy for my man and he is great at what he does, and it so happens to put him in this position for people to think they have a say. I for one did not want this to be public at all, which is increasingly the reason seeing this is so frustrating. But we were advised to do so, so media couldn’t put their own spin on it. I am quite irrelevant so then please refrain from commenting on my (this irrelevant persons) pregnancy.”
Some users came to Monique’s defense, describing the haters as “jealous”
Others encouraged her to ignore the haters, and not bother responding to them, but Monique continued to address her haters.
“I’m tired of people thinking they can talk sh”t all the time, but in public kiss Katlego’s a** for a picture,” she wrote.
