- Pearl Thusi came under fire for her comments about Kanye West’s visit to Uganda
- The media personality was responding to the rapper’s recent meeting with President Museveni
- She fired back at one tweep for criticizing her trip to the USA
Pearl Thusi has been in the industry for over a decade and while she has a massive fanbase, she has also earned herself a few haters along the way. In a recent exchange on social media, Pearl clapped back at a tweep who came after her.
The media personality shared some of her thoughts about Kim and Kanye’s trip to Uganda. The rapper needed to clear his head, so he thought that making a trip to Uganda would help him get back into his music.
During their stay, the couple caused an outcry when they visited the country’s president, who is strongly against equal treatment for members of the LGBTQ community and presented him with a pair of sneakers as a gift.
After hearing about this, Pearl took to social media to ask why Kim and Kanye visited President Museveni and if they put any thought into their trip.
Briefly.co.za learned that a tweep responded to Pearl’s questions by taking a dig at her and her many trips to America.
The social media user asked her if she read up on all of America’s issues before any of her visits to the United States.
According to ZAlebs, Paerl fired back at the troll by pointing out that she had in fact done her homework, but she was not going to be visiting President Trump.
She ended off her reply with ‘uyadina’, which in English, loosely translates to ‘you suck’.
