Mihlali Ndamase's name is on many social media users' tongues after she accused a flight company's staff of racism. The make-up artist claimed she and her friends were treated unfairly before they were removed from their flight.
It was reported earlier how popular make-up artist and beauty vlogger, Mihlali Ndamase, took to social media to rant over 'racist and unfair' treatment she and her friends suffered.
She claimed that she and her group were called animals by the staff of FlySafair and said she was disgusted by the alleged racism shown by the company's flight attendants, according to ZAlebs.
Since getting wind of the incident, social media users have flooded the Twitter streets with their opinions on the matter.
In general, Mzansi is divided between accusing of Mihlali of misbehaving and using the word 'racism' unnecessarily, and defending her against the treatment she says she received.
For the most part, though, it looks like people aren't very impressed with Mihlali.
Facebook user Sonja Venter, one of Briefly.co.za's readers, says she was on the flight and the make-up artist and her friends were misbehaving.
I was on that flight last night and I know the truth..her friends throwing trash in the isle...having their cellphones on when requested to put it off. Asked by the hostess not less than 3 times to not be so loud. No racial comments was made by the hostesses at all. There are more witnesses that can verify it...
In addition, one tweep shared the text conversation between them and one of the flight attendants who were part of the distasteful incident:
