- Pearl Thusi is normally the perfect ambassador for all things Mzansi, but she went seriously offside during Jill Scott and Erykah Badu's Instagram Live yesterday
- The star took it upon herself to be a mean girl and tell Jill Scott that her face was shiny
- Mind you, this stream was being watched by the likes of Michelle Obama too
What on earth was Pearl Thusi thinking to diss the incomparable Jill Scott during a convo with the people?
The actress turned a sweet moment extremely sour when she told Jill Scott she had a shiny face.
Pearl made the comment during Jill Scott and Erykah Badu's Instagram Live music battle yesterday.
She wrote, "I wish I could powder Jill Scott's face."
Jill kept her cool and laughed off the rude comment, but tweeps were not so forgiving.
Fans instantly dragged Pearl for her mean girl antics.
Tshisevhe Mphaphuli said:
"Pearl Thusi must start thinking before she says things."
According to Monica Kolisi, this side of Pearl has always been there - we just hadn't noticed it yet.
She said, "It's cute how people get shocked every time Pearl Thusi behaves the same way Pearl Thusi has always been."
We might just have to let this one slip up slide, as Pearl usually flies the Mzansi flag so high.
Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that Pearl had landed an endorsement deal with international luxury make-up brand Mac.
The talented entertainment all-rounder was also the first Mzansi leading lady on a Neflix original series.
