“Love Island SA” is nearing its final stage, but one of the islanders, Millitel Blanche, has landed in hot water to make a rape joke.
In one of the recent episodes, Tania Kera was shown in the fire pit with Millie, discussing her situation with Ross Marshall, who she is currently associated with.
Ross is very open to the show that he is a virgin and is waiting for marriage before having sex.
In a conversation with Millie, Taina said: Many will save themselves at the age of 20. “
Millie begins to laugh and then responds by saying, “Rape him.”

Fans of the show were very dissatisfied with Millie joking about rape and shared their dissatisfaction online.
Millie needs to know someone in production as there is still no way for this girl to survive so long and continue after making those rape jokes #LoveIslandSA

Making rape jokes and laughing is not fun. It’s sad to know that they’re on TV and don’t care what they say. I haven’t seen this show unless Millie and Tania are removed from the show.apology @LoveIsland_SA#LoveIslandSA

Millie made a rape joke and Love Island edited that part from the episode, so no one notices it? 😟

Love Island in the UK kicked off someone by saying “pussy punt”, but Millie makes a rape joke, and is she still on the show and prosperous? In the rape capital of the world? Producers should do better.
