Indigenous rapper Phyno has said that celebrities cannot be bullied if they don’t give fans the chance to.
The ‘I’m a Fan’ singer said celebrities who exchange words with fans on social media are essentially creating an opening for bullying.
“Fans will bully who wants to be bullied. Fans can’t come out and bully anybody,” Phyno told Planet TV.
“On social media, everybody comes to comment stuff and every other thing but if your mind is on fans bullying you, then that’s where you have a problem – or maybe if you do something wrong.
“People comment and you don’t even people that are commenting. I mean it’s people’s private lives but fans are fans – they know you and you don’t know them. So if you want to start exchanging words with people you don’t know, it’s your business.”
Despite being of the opinion that responding to social media comments makes one susceptible to bullying, Phyno recently reacted to the swipe taken at him by an Instagram celebrity, Hushpuppi.
The Instagram celebrity had accused Phyno and Ice Prince of showing off fake watches on social media, prompting the rapper to respond in kind.
His response resulted in a back and forth between them on Snapchat.
‘Limpopo’ singer, Kcee, would later join his fellow entertainer to slam Hushpuppi.
