TimesLIVE reported Mtwesi received backlash on Monday after Metro FM’s Fresh Breakfast team posted a photo of her on Twitter.

A tweep, who goes by the handle Warrior Woman Elminie, said Mtwesi looked like a woman who works the night.

“I am determined to find this woman and teach her a lesson. I have already spoken to my lawyer and he said he will find her. It’s not that I am heartbroken, it’s that I want to teach cyberbullies a lesson,” she said.

Warrior Woman Elminie was not the only one who felt Mtwesi's outfit was not appropriate, gathered.

Diane Redelinghuys, who goes by the Twitter handle‏ @crazydoctorlady, wrote: "Good LAWD! Is that appropriate dress code for a cardiologist?"

Her post received a fiery clapback from the hot doc, who told Redelinghuys to take away her "farm mentality."

A lot of South Africans defended Mtwesi, adding there was nothing wrong with the way she dressed.

Social media user @NuraanNuri wrote: "Why not. Her style of dressing has got absolutely nothing to do with her capabilities as a cardiologist."
