Tinashe Mutarisi Speaks Out on Photo Scandal: “I Was Used for Clout”
Zimbabwean tycoon, Tinashe Mutarisi, has come out to clear the air regarding a controversial photo of him and his former schoolmate, Jossy, that set social media ablaze. The picture, which showed Jossy leaning on Tinashe, sparked speculations that the two might be romantically involved.
In a Facebook comment, Tinashe refuted the claims and set the record straight. He disclosed that Jossy was merely an old friend from their school days and that the picture was taken after they met up, and she opened up to him about her current struggles.
“I had no idea that she was going to lean on me like that, and it came as a surprise to me. I do not take those kinds of pictures because I know that they can be misinterpreted, and people can use them to hurt others,” Tinashe clarified.
The businessman also expressed his disappointment at being used for clout, saying that he felt violated and taken advantage of. He urged people to be cautious about what they post online and to avoid jumping to conclusions without getting the full story.
It is not uncommon for people to rush to conclusions based on a single photo, especially when it involves public figures. The internet is rife with people looking for their fifteen minutes of fame by starting online debates and controversies.
However, it is essential to remember that there are real people behind these stories and that they have feelings and reputations that can be easily tarnished. It is important to exercise caution and seek the truth before jumping to conclusions.
Tinashe Mutarisi’s statement serves as a reminder to the public that not everything posted online is true, and we must exercise caution before believing and spreading rumors. The incident also highlights the need for people to respect each other’s privacy and avoid using others for personal gain or clout.
