Pearl Thusi just can't seem to catch a break on social media. The actress was recently dragged by Mzansi after she posted a gorgeous picture. The reason seemed to be that she quoted a song which talks about brown skin.
The song Brown Skin Girl by Beyoncé was made popular after the singer revealed that it was dedicated to dark-skinned black women.
Some social media users believe that Pearl Thusi does not qualify as she has lighter skin. She was roasted for trying to include herself in a narrative that was not about her.
Poor Pearl looked stunning in the said photo, clad in a teeny tiny bikini, showing off her gorgeous body. It's unfortunate that the caption has led to division among social media users. Twitter user Zoemkoena said:
"You're not brown sis. Use some lyrics from songs about light-skinned girls."
"Sis Pearl, this one is ours. Please let us have our moment of fame in peace, thina bo DARK CHOCOLATE! Yellow bones have had their chance, there are so many songs about them and we didn’t complain, so please let us have this one hle."
"You’re literally only ever relevant when you’re taking away from dark-skinned women."
"Guys when Beyoncé said brown skin, she literally meant all shades of brown skin. I don’t know why y’all are fighting uPearl. Angazi ngoba ‘Yellow bone’ is a made-up term. There’s no such thing."
"Beyoncé was talking about dark-skinned women, it's evident in the song as well. If it's not as clear to you, look it up there's an article where she clarifies everything."

The media personality recently debuted a short hairdo and sis is looking fiercer than ever. Pearl took to Instagram to share the photo and the feedback was amazing. It seems fans love Mama Panther in whatever hairstyle she rocks.
The actress has never been shy to experiment with her crown. She has rocked her natural afro, weaves, braids and not short hair and looks amazing in every style.
