- There has been an ongoing debate about black girls and the hairstyles they're allowed to wear to school
- One girl was sent home after her braids were deemed too long and people were deeply upset
- Ntsiki Mazwai joined in on the debate and went after the mother, mocking and criticizing her
Ntsiki Mazwai is making peeps' blood boil every now and again - it's become something that she's used to.
The most recent incident was when the poet and activist joined the controversial debate about women wearing weaves.
A student was sent home after her braids were deemed too long and this sparked an online debate. Ntsiki added her opinion, and it's one that not everyone agreed with.
Ntsiki stated that the mother is complaining about her daughter not being allowed to wear her hair the way she desires while hiding her own natural hair.
Ntsiki also went on to say that black women are the only ones to wear 2 hairstyles at the same time.
"You're a mother in fake hair and complaining that your child can't have her real hair at school? Are you serious? Exhibit A is in the mirror. That's the person who gave whites permission to disrespect our hair.
"They brag about the Afro they are 'hiding' under a weave. You're wearing a set of hair, sisi. You're the only woman on the planet who has two hairstyles on one head at the same time."
Briefly.co.za gathered some of the responses that Ntsiki garnered from upset tweeps:
"Ntsiki, can't you just focus on yourself and leave other people to also do as they want with their lives? Your obsession with other people 's hair is really becoming a yawn"
"Let’s unpack that yaz Ntsiki. So if ur growing a “healthy Afro” under your wig, what r u growing it for because with some, you NEVER see them without that wig. So what’s the point?"
"People should not take offence when they told the truth about “their” hair..stop defending bs. Wear your hat with confidence mntase or if unentliziyo encinci don’t wear it at all"
"Her money, her life, her head, her choice! Women will never stop wearing weaves or wigs."
"Can't she leave people alone. They do what they want with their lives akere. Why is she annoying kanje vele????"
"And u don't think BRAIDS is fake hair?"
