Chillers Over The Moon As MacG Bags A New Sponsor. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. The past few weeks have not been easy for MacG. A month ago, MacG and his co-host Sol Pheduka infuriated the LGBTQ+ community after sharing their views about transgender people. There was so much pressure on social media after the episode was aired resulting in Podcast and Chill with MacG losing their Old Mutual sponsorship. This was not enough for a lot of people, wanted him to be cancelled.
A statement was the released , in which the Podcast and Chill with MacG apologized for their homophobic remarks. This took a different turn though, when MacG aired another episode to address the selective cancel culture. He called out celebrities for telling off certain people publicly when they err, but being mum when their faves are on the wrong side of the law. He mentioned how the likes of Thando Thabethe and Mantsoe were quite the time DJ Fresh was accused of alleged rape, but were vocal when his transgender episode aired.
Within a few days after the episode, MacG lost his second deal, this time around with SupaBet. The gaming sports group SupaBets was responsible for licensing his content on SupaTV. They suspended the airing of all MacG’s content on its channel while an internal investigation is being conducted. Although this didn’t look good for MacG, and his podcast, he continued pushing.
