Gorgeous Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi, had a minor wardrobe malfunction and a man (who is assumed to be part of the Miss Universe pageant staff) made a joke that did not sit well with Mzansi.
According to News24, some of the beads on her outfit came loose and she explained to a man with her that she caught it on something.
The man then apparently jokes about reporting Zozi to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, the South African beauty queen who was crowned Miss Universe 2017.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the man also joked about sending Zozi back to SA for the malfunction.
Boy, did South Africans get upset over this joke. Admittedly, it wasn't a very good joke but was still meant in good spirit.
