South African’s Angry Nigerians Made DSTV Remove Transgender Caitlyn Jenner Show
Some South African subscribers of the popular DSTV have reacted angrily to the network’s removal of the transgender show, I Am Cait.
Multichoice Nigeria has pulled down the popular transgender-themed reality TV series, ‘I am Cait’ which centres around Caitlyn Jenner, a transgender woman formerly know as Bruce Jenner, from Nigerian television due to complaints from viewers across the country.
South Africa’s Channel 24 entertainment site reports that the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) allegedly ordered that the show be pulled, effectively censoring it for African viewers, and this is making some South Africans annoyed.
The angry viewers took to instagram to express their grievances and blame the Nigerian Broadcast Commission for the removal of the TV show.
This is the second time a transgender themed show had to be cancelled in the country. A reality docu-series following a transgender teenager ‘I am Jazz’ was also cancelled last year.
