A podcast is a collection or series of digital audio files that are made available for downloading or listening via the Internet. Rea is amongst other people that own a podcast, recently he had a podcast where he mentioned that everyone one knows that Bonang Mathebe introduced one of her friends to a drug called cockchein, this caused a stir on social media as everyone was talking about it, until it came to Bonang's attention that she was trending.
This matter was then taken to court, the court held that Rea will have to R300 000 to Bonang, for deformation of character, which caused a stir on social media. After Bonang posted that R300 000 is demanded from the guy one of the comments was the picture of a post, posted by Rea where he asked if anyone knows where they are selling kidneys, and suggested that they should use this option, it is quite funny that people can think this far.
the black Twitter president says that Bonang has already spent a lot of money on lawyers, so even if Rea doesn't win this case Bonang lost a lot of money in the process, and on the other hand the guy doesn't even have the money.
A lot of people think that Bonang just wasted money on lawyers, for money she will never get.
It is quite sad, how easy a career would come to an end just because of not talking properly, the guy was surely trying to make his sure more interesting but he should have said the news is allegedly, instead of saying he knows for sure. In my opinion Bonang shouldn't have entertained this matter as it was just coming from a guy we bearly know, and the guy should have just apologized to Bonang.
I hope trough this story we will learn to verify our facts before publishing anything. What is your take on this? Do you think Bonang is right by taking this matter this far? Let me know on the comments section below and don't forget to follow me.
