- TV host, Pearl Modiadie, shared a snap of herself in the zoo, and sent the rumour mill buzzing
- Trolls started to congratulate her, thinking she was pregnant from the clothes she was wearing
- But Pearl wouldn't have any of it, and clapped back at the trolls, and Terry Pheto also weighed in
Mzansi media personality, Pearl Modiadie, clapped back at trolls insinuating that she was pregnant on social media on Monday.
The pregnancy speculation followed after the TV host shared a picture of herself at the zoo. But it immediately sent the rumour mill into overdrive.
Pearl was wearing a crop-top in the snap, and the trolls commented that she looked like she could be pregnant.
But Pearl was infuriated and quickly cautioned fans on social media.
She tweeted: “Wait for someone to make a pregnancy announcement before you start congratulating them. There are health conditions that can make women appear to be ‘pregnant’! It’s insensitive and rude to simply assume they are just from their appearance.”
But many people came to Pearl’s defence. Even actress, Terry Pheto, said she had given up correcting people.
“Babe I’ve been ‘pregnant’ for two years now. I’ve stopped correcting people. It’s insensitive and tiring… if only they knew what most women go through with fertility issues.”
Pearl agreed with Terry saying a person shouldn’t have to explain everything to everyone.
“There actually shouldn’t be a need to! Urrgh, it’s so tiring! (Love) to you babe!”
Meanwhile, seven months ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Pearl Modiadie seemed like the type of woman who laughs when life starts throwing punches, but she's only human and also suffers heartaches and difficult times like the rest of us.
The beautiful entertainer recently shared with her fans that she had her heart broken and was left without a home - she had to live with her sister and then find a hotel to stay in.
However, instead of feeling sorry for herself, Pearl decided to learn from the experience and shared the lesson she learnt with her followers on Twitter.
