- Pearl Thusi recently rubbed a few peeps up the wrong way when she tweeted out the lyrics to Beyonce's Brown Skin Girl alongside her photos
- Tweeps went in on the media personality for using lyrics to a song about brown-skinned girls even though she is extremely light in complexion
- One tweep took it up a notch by reminding Pearl that she lost out on Miss Teen SA to a real brown-skinned girl
Pearl Thusi came under fire for using the lyrics of Beyonce's Brown Skin Girl as a caption for one of her photo shoots. Peeps were peeved that Pearl would use an anthem that was meant to uplift brown-skinned girls when she is extremely light-skinned.
Disgruntled tweeps filled Pearl's mentions with their disapproval. One social media user took it a step further by reminding Pearl that she had once lost out on the Miss Teen SA title to a real brown-skinned girl.
@Titanbaddie posted a picture of the top 3 and wrote, "Reminder that Pearl Thusi lost Miss Teen 2003. Let's celebrate that."
Peeps pointed out that the star lost out to a dark-skinned girl and concluded that that might be the reason why Pearl might have a complex.
@dahitmkr wrote, "Also to a dark-skinned girl. That's why she's mad."
Others urged @Titanbaddie to chill and allow Pearl to be great.
Yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that Pearl received a ton of flack for using the Brown Skin Girl lyrics to caption her photos. Peeps believe it's really unnecessary for Pearl to appropriate lyrics meant especially to celebrate darker skinned women.
