Mzansi celebs have taken to social media to share their views on the controversial Twitter user Tracy Zille.
Tracy claimed that black Africans have abandoned their own customs to adopt European traditions and culture.
In one post, Tracy pointed out that black people spend so much money "to be like whites" by wearing "white people's hair". She questioned why black people like throwing white weddings.
Some of the country's entertainers have weighed in on Tracy's views.
Generations: The Legacy actress Manaka Ranaka slammed Tracy for her claims. Manaka, in an open letter to Tracy, accused white people of trying to replicate black African culture for the longest time.
The star also shared pictures to back up her claims.
"Dear Tracy Zille... Your brothers find us exotic. Your so called Messiah has been trying to take over Umvelinqangi nedlozi (ancestors) for the longest time without fully succeeding. Busy calling us demonic for sticking to our roots and culture."
Actor Fana Mokoena also got into a debate with Tracy, urging her to use her energy to "return the land".
"You might want to start telling white people to return the land they stole from black people."

She accused South African xenophobes of being scared of the "whites". Ntsiki said in a video she posted on Twitter:
"You leave the white people who are actually stealing from you, from your economy because you're scared of whites and now you rather attack the black people. What the f*ck is wrong with you."
