UFC fighter Themba Gorimbo knocked out by Winky D’s fans

Winky D

MMA fighter Themba Gorimbo faced significant backlash and temporarily deactivated his social media accounts following a contentious post about Zimbabwean dancehall star Winky D. Gorimbo, known globally for his MMA skills, suggested that Winky D’s fame was limited to Zimbabweans, sparking outrage among fans who accused him of belittling the musician’s achievements.

Gorimbo’s post, which was later deleted, ignited immediate criticism, with fans interpreting his remarks as an overestimation of his own popularity after recent MMA victories. Attempting to calm the situation, Gorimbo claimed his comments were intended as a joke, but this failed to appease Winky D’s supporters, who continued to criticize him until he opted to deactivate his accounts.

Despite a loss in his UFC debut, Gorimbo rebounded with three consecutive wins, including a notable victory over Ramiz Brahimaj in Las Vegas. However, his online behavior drew further scrutiny when X user The Instigator @Am_Blujay criticized Gorimbo for allegedly changing his demeanor after gaining financial success in MMA.

Controversial blogger Shadaya Knight weighed in, suggesting that Gorimbo needed professional management to navigate his social media presence. Knight accused Gorimbo of becoming disconnected from reality since gaining fame, insinuating that he had become arrogant and disrespectful to both fellow celebrities and his supporters.

The incident underscores the challenges celebrities face in managing their public image and interactions on social media, with Gorimbo’s case serving as a cautionary tale about the pitfalls of unchecked online behavior in the age of instant communication and scrutiny.
