It's nothing new that Pearl Thusi is being shaded for her light-toned skin. The super-successful and gorgeous star has been creamed for the colour of her skin ever since she entered the spotlight.
Pearl is undoubtedly one of the strongest and most independent women ever. Having a lighter shade of skin has not made it easy for Pearl, however, she has never let it stop her.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Pearl’s name was brought up during a discussion about Sho Madjozi winning a BET where a few expressed that they feel she only won it because of her light skin.
Having suffered severely due to being ridiculed about the tone of her skin, Pearl does not take things like this lightly. So, when Pearl was mentioned in the comments, she fired back hard.
Pearl made it clear that having light skin did not get her to where she is, it actually made it a whole lot harder!
Understanding the hardship that Pearl has suffered, DJ Zinhle jumped to her bestie's defence.
Another celeb who knows the struggle of being ridiculed for being fair-skinned is Nadia Nakai. Nadia also took to social media to show Pearl some support.
Boity Thulo and Denise Zimba also posted in support of Pearl.
