Simphiwe Dana was involved in a spicy twar with a social media user after she called #BlackTwitter out for being toxic. She said the social media platform needs to stop tearing others down and show more love.
The songstress said the tweets on the platform were negative and should be used to build each other up instead.
However, a social media user named SphaMthethwa said her post was hypocritical because she had, according to him, also posted negative content over the last few months. He went on to say that he had lost respect for the muso. Dana clapped back immediately and said those posts were calling out misogyny and deadbeat fathers. The tweep, however, continued with his criticism, saying that she was rambling. Simphiwe forced the tweep to produce proof these ramblings, but he did not. Instead, he responded:
"Like I said, at no point I disputed your efforts but I simply pointed out that you've tweeted some negative stuff for no apparent reason, then boom you started rattling off about all the stuff you've done."
Twitter user Fal01Mat agreed, saying:
"You took words out of my mouth, I support love and will continue supporting her music big time but I have been very disappointed by her outburst here on Twitter."

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Simphiwe Dana is not happy with Mzansi government's decision to open schools when the country moves to Level 3 lockdown. The songstress said it was wrong to "force" parents to send their precious children to school amid the "highly contagious, fast-acting and airborne virus".
