South African Twitter Responds to Jack Parow's Homophobic Tweet Promoting His Brandy

The South African rapper took to Twitter to promote his brandy and the homophobe in him jumped right out.

Zander Tyler, better known by his stage name Jack Parow, a South African Afrikaans rapper known for his outlandish style and humongous caps, is in trouble after he recently took to Twitter to promote his new brandy in an explicitly homophobic manner.


In the tweet, Jack Parow compares two images. In the first image, are the three Jonas Brothers with the words "moffies" next to them. "Moffie" is a derogatory Afrikaans term used to refer to homosexual men. The second image is that of three bottles of Jack Parow's own brandy with the words "die manne" next to it, which, translated from Afrikaans, refers to "the men." The tweet accompanying the images reads, "fokkit, this needs no caption."

Although the rapper has since removed the tweet, many South Africans have lashed out at him on Twitter, providing receipts of the deleted tweet and calling him out on his homophobia. While some have condemned his tweet him and warned against how he is further endangering an already targeted community in South Africa, others have expressed how disappointed they are, but are hardly surprised.

Jack Parow is yet to release a public statement or apology.
