I'm no traitor, I'm just doing my job says Generations Connie Ferguson

“We got a lot of flak for taking this job. We had people swearing at us and calling us traitors,” Ranaka said. “I was forced to block two of the 16 fired actors from my social networks for being in support of people tweeting us hate messages.”

The soapie disappeared from television screens for two months after producer Mfundi Vundla fired 16 main cast members in August during a pay dispute.

Ranaka was unfazed by the accusations, saying she did not “give two sh**s”.

Ferguson, who returned to the soapie after leaving in 2010, said she had received “hate tweets like one-liners saying ‘Connie Ferguson is a traitor'”.

“I always delete these tweets and don’t even entertain them because I know who I am and why I am doing this. I am not doing this to betray anybody. This is my profession.”

One Twitter user, Kagiso Mathaba, wrote: “I feel like Connie and Rapulana are sellouts. Support fellows actors, not profit from their loss.”

Lebogang Ngubeni wrote: “I guess all these new actors of Generations are traitors.”

Generations: The Legacy had millions glued to their screens on Monday. The South African Audience Research Foundation said the launch episode attracted more than 10million viewers. The original Generations had 7.4million viewers at the time it was canned.

But the reaction from some fans was lukewarm. Shane Morwane wrote on Twitter: ” … it’s just so boring … why bring back an old storyline … start something new. Plz.”
