THE RIDICULOUS REASONS THESE DStv CARTOONS GOT BANNED

As rape allegations swirl, shocking misconduct is once again marring Mzansi Magic's Big Brother Mzansi as male contestant gets expelled.


M-Net continues to court controversy with its Big Brother Mzansi franchise as it yet again expelled a contestant in the latest season following rape allegations - with Adams (Siyanda Ngwenya) immediately dumped from the house and Bexx (Axola Mbengo) also removed for her own well-being.

It's not clear exactly what happened between Adams and Bexx but in a terse statement release just after 23:00 on Monday night by Mzansi Magic, the M-Net run TV channel said "Adams has been expelled from the Big Brother Mzansi house for misconduct".

"Another housemate, Bexx, has been removed for her own well-being. Both these contestants have been debriefed by the resident psychologist. Their partners have been given the option to remain in the competition."

Adams and Bexx partners, Tembi (Tembela Magandela-Mthupha) and Soxx (Sokhana Ralane) will now form a pair.

As a result of the two contestants now out of the reality show which is once again becoming controversial, there will be no eviction.

A year ago a male contestant was expelled for physically assaulting a female contestant in Big Brother Mzansi.

Then M-Net told TV with Thinus that its an "isolated incident" and that "viewers understand that these isolated incidents do not represent our brand".

While South Africa has a huge societal problem with violence against women and rape, M-Net continues to run the show, produced by Endemol South Africa and broadcast on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform, which appears to offer very little protection to women.

M-Net and Mzansi Magic has now twice - once each season of Big Brother Mzansi - failed to protect female contestants and placed them in a physical setting where things were done to them which should never have happened.

Is M-Net as a South African pay-TV broadcaster, Mzansi Magic (DStv 161) and DStv which runs 24/7 Big Brother Mzansi TV channels perpetuating and condoning violence against women?

M-Net, Mzansi Magic, Endemol South Africa and MultiChoice all keep doing seasons of Big Brother Mzansi and Big Brother Africa and keep placing women in a TV place where they are made victims again and again and again, with shocking incidents every season.
