Media personality, Lerato Kganyago, took to social media to offer clap back on hypocrisy on social media after tweeps started dissing #MrPrice on Monday.
The hashtag topped Twitter trends lists but it all started after a vlogger dissed people for wearing clothes that looked too “Mr Pricey”. The debate raged more as some defended the retailer and the personal choice on where to purchase clothes, while others continued to criticise.
Lerato decided to give people a piece of her mind after seeing the trending debate, but to more importantly stop people from making others inferior for supporting the “cheap” store.
“There’s nothing wrong with Mr Price and Shoprite! So what sits your pockets, not what suits social media my children, ba’ska lehlanyetsa!!”
Lerato then went on to explain that most people who make their business to diss others on Twitter were hypocrites.

Lerato also went on to say stores like Shoprite and Mr Price has great products at affordable prices too.
But as usual, there were afew trolls who thought they could take Lerato on for her opinion.
One tweep called her a ‘sell-out’ for giving the retail stores free advertising but didn’t extend the same courtesy to black-owned shops or products.
But Lerato clapped back and set him straight too.
“My whole house was renovated by black people, my entire house has custom made furniture, a shop owned by black females. I wear local brands, my makeup gets done by black women, I buy hair from black women, should I continue or you want to do some quick research about me?”
Let's hope this lent some perspective to social media users to just let people wear what they what and what they can afford.
Meanwhile a month ago, Briefly.co.za reported that two weeks after the first reports of a Twitter war between rapper, Cassper Nyovest, and media personality, Lerato Kganyago, they were at it again. Lerato called Cassper childish and he responded in kind.
Media personality, Lerato Kganyago, and rapper, Cassper Nyovest, clearly do not see eye-to-eye.
Two weeks before this, the celebs apparently had an argument, according to SAHipHopMag, and were at it again, this time over music radio charts.
