A recent episode of Mzansi magic show, Our Perfect Wedding has been reported to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa after a scene showed a young, pre-teen boy drinking from a can of beer.
Even the host, Thembisa Mdoda, who was interviewing the couple at the time seemed to have missed it.
Eagle-eyed viewers pointed out the incident on social media during the episode.
According to Sowetan Live, Nondumiso Mabece, head of M-Net’s public relations for local entertainment channels, told the Daily Sun that the broadcaster does not condone underage drinking.
“We are aware of the images on social media and would like to state that Mzansi Magic does not condone underage drinking,” said Mabece.
Castle Lite also released a statement on the matter and shared it on Twitter, stating that they do not condone underage drinking and what happened was unacceptable.
