This is not the first time Anita has trended because of posting about the LGBTQ community.
About two months ago, in one of her episodes on Instagram ‘The overdressed cook’, she hosted two members of the LGBTQ community and her post attracted mixed reactions from fans.
During an interview with Massawe, Anita said she will not apologise for hosting members of the LGBTQ community on her cooking show, ‘The overdressed cook’.
“They were just being themselves and nothing on the show was scripted,” she said. “What I know is they won’t love you all the time, some things you do, they will celebrate you, others, they will not. It is a right of expression and so I respect people’s opinions,” she said.
“I refuse to apologise for choosing to allow my friends to be who they are and for airing the episode ‘coz it is my channel and I am allowed to do that. I just hope people will be open-minded.”
On whether she is a member of the LGBTQ, Anita said that is private.
“When I’m ready to share, I will,” she said, adding she will have another episode on the same.
