Khanya Mkangisa had the social media streets buzzing when a video surfaced showing her arrest of two weeks ago.

The actress was taken into custody for drinking and driving, and her fiery interaction with a female Metro Police officer caught a lot of people's attention.

While there are some of her die-hard loyal fans who defended her, a lot of people criticised Khanya's behaviour.

Her drunk driving is especially upsetting to South Africans who have been affected by accidents caused by drivers who were under the influence of alcohol.

IOL News reported that Khanya shared her side of the story during an interview with Metro FM.

She explained that she was taking her nail technician home when she was stopped at a roadblock in Witkoppen, Johannesburg.

“I was in the wrong, no one should be ever driving under the influence, for whatever reason... That shouldn’t have happened, that I acknowledge but keep the same energy, treat me like you would everyone else."

Despite her remorse, most of Mzansi isn't impressed. Briefly.co.za gathered just a couple of the tweets that have come into life with the #khanya hashtag.
