Petronella has won over Mzansi with her charm and wit on ‘The Queen’ but on the latest episode, her creative use of the English language is what got the most attention.
Tweeps have been flooding social media with memes after Petronella gave some interesting advice to Vee.
She had been begging Vee to give toy boy Zack another chance and to not be so quick in jumping to conclusions but saying that he is ‘guilty until proven innocent’ has ruined her argument.
Petronella was meant to say that he is innocent until proven guilty but by this time it was too late, viewers had heard her faux pas and immediately headed to Twitter to roast her.
Briefly.co.za learned that fans have decided that Petronella, who is played by Thembsie Matu, makes the show and it would not be the same without her.
Petronella is always giving out advice and she has become the main person that all the characters on the show turn to in their time of need, but sometimes her pearls of wisdom get lost in translation.
TimesLIVE reports that fans stopped paying attention to the show after Petronella’s slip up because they were too busy roasting her on Twitter.
