Dineo Langa has revealed that she was fired from hit telenovela, The Queen.
Dineo, who played the character of Kea Khoza, has just spilled the tea on Instagram.
The actress had commented on the soapie's Loyiso Macdonald's post about shooting more episodes when a fan asked her when she was coming back.
"Ang'buyi mina ngaxoshwa (I'm not coming back, I got fired)."
When more of her confused fans inquired about the return of her character, she set the record straight.
"I'm not. My character was removed from the show. The character will be dying soon soon."
One of her fans, mballytoxxic, said she thought this was just a rumour.
"I thought this was just some false rumour. I cannot accept this. I am no longer interested in watching The Queen unless they bring you back."
Another fan, dineodolce, commented:
"We've heard about their ill treatment towards the cast. They seemed like good people but I won't further support them."

Briefly.co.za reported when the soapie's show runner, Laura Nell, told IOL that Dineo had not been fired.
"Dineo's contract was not terminated. She is still on payroll until the end of May. Dineo was released to go and shoot her movie. Scripts had to be rewritten to accommodate this as she was on an 'A' story line. She was scheduled to return in April, but due to the lockdown, everything has changed."
Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that the Fergusons had written Rami Chuene out of the soapie after she sided with fellow actress Vatiswa Ndara against them on social media.
