Mohale recently asked for prayers as he and Somizi struggle to cope with the passing of Somizi's mother, Mary
He tweeted, "I've never seen my husband like this. Please pray for us, guys. I really need to be strong for him."
Some peeps thought that Mohale was doing too much by taking his grief to social media and rudely let him know.
Soon, #Mohale trended as fans rushed to the young star's defense.
@CarolPalay wrote, "Some of you here lack emotional intelligence, but that's a discussion for another day. Be strong, Mohale. You are in my prayers."
@_MaDlams said, "Mohale lost his mother-in-law and his husband lost his mom. Even if he was to come here every single day and express his grief, just let him be. Ave ningena zwelo (You are not empathetic) and it's disgusting."
On Saturday, Briefly.co.za reported that Mary Twala had passed away aged 80 years old.
Last year, Briefly.co.za reported that Mama Mary had received a presidential honour for her contribution to the arts.
The veteran star had been on Mzansi screens for decades, and she'd been seen in TV shows like Skwizas, Muvhango and Hopeville to name a few.
