Briefly News reports Pearl Thusi took to social media to defend Anele Mdoda. The Mzansi media personality has come under heavy attack from American Twitter after they heard that she roasted one of their fave, Kelly Rowland.

Anele has also been shaded by Mzansi fans of the US superstar. Anele's name is trending high on social media this Friday evening.

Taking to Twitter, the Queen Sono star shared her thoughts on the whole saga. According to ZAlebs Pearl said:

"So this thing with Anele has gone straight to body shaming. Intense. I thought there was a universal agreement that we’d all outgrown that."
