- Penny Lebyane responded to a social media user who pointed out a spelling mistake she made
- The radio and TV personality wasn't in the mood for 'grammar Nazis' and said she doesn't think less of herself for a spelling error on Twitter
- She also told people who have an issue with spelling mistakes where to get off
Popular TV and radio personality, Penny Lebyane, was expressing her annoyance at being delayed on a shoot when someone thought it was a good idea to tell her she made a spelling mistake.
She clearly wasn't impressed and responded accordingly. Those grammar Nazis have a way of rubbing people up the wrong way.
Penny said she wasn't going to lose sleep over making a spelling mistake on social media and that things like that don't mean you're stupid.
TimesLIVE reported Penny said:
“Lose vs loose, you know what I mean. I really don’t care hey. I type fast, the phone does what it does. I don’t lose sleep over it and my heart rate doesn’t change. I don’t think less or highly of myself because of a spelling error on Twitter. Sorry if I embarrass you."
Oh, we so love a classy clapback!
Penny also told people to mind their own business.
“It (the spelling error) says nothing about my IQ or EQ, so quite frankly I’m not bothered. Angina ndaba mina. Abantu ba ya dina futhi ba ya hlupha. A ba new meetse.”
As a successful woman, Penny knows how to let unsolicited comments roll off her back and focus on dealing with important matters.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that she opened up about the truth about how things work in the entertainment business, and black radio in particular.
She expressed how she feels the brutality in the industry has very negative effects on people's mental health, hers included.
