South Africa reacts to insinuations about Somizi having HIV

Somizi Mhlongo

Last night, the public got to see the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi for the first time and although there have been multiple warnings issued about the no-holds-barred subject matter of the roast, many still found themselves quite offended. 

The most offensive joke of them all seems to be jokes insinuating that Somizi has HIV. This after he revealed in his book that he is living with one of three major terminal illnesses but said that he will never reveal what it is. 

As such, the roast panel took carpe diem with that information and made several jokes implying that the star is living with HIV. One such panelist was the best roaster in the business, Skhumba. 

*AGAIN: Please be aware that the following video contains strong language:

The jokes illicited strong reactions from viewers and made others laugh: 

No word about when the repeat will air on Comedy Central but we will be sure to keep you posted.
