- Pearl Modiadie taught a troll on Twitter some manners during a debate over the show Gomora and the character Teddy
- She schooled the troll, telling him that "we don’t speak to each other like that on this timeline of mine"
- Her sentiments were echoed by another user who has a brother with similar learning problems as the character Teddy on the show
Fans of the hit Mzansi Magic show Gomora started a debate on Twitter which caught the attention of Pearl Modiadie.
The issue was around the character Teddy (Sicelo Buthelezi) who struggled to pronounce a couple of English words in class.
Teddy is a favourite on the show and has difficulties learning in school, having failed Grade 9 twice.
“Can Teddy just be allowed to debate in his home language?＃Gomora. I get so upset when people who aren’t fluent in English are made fun of.”
A tweep responded:
“Chill, it an act.”
She was not impressed with his response and decided to school him in manners:
This is a positive space my babe… we don’t speak to each other like that on this timeline of mine."
“I know it’s a show & art often imitates life and vice versa. Now either you disagree respectfully or unfollow my opinions.”
@LusandaSomdaka echoed Pearl's sentiments:
"My young brother is exactly like Teddy and I love him, support him because I know he might struggle with Dyslexia but his so good with other things I struggle with. Let's support, encourage and love them as much as we can Red heart #gomoramzansi #Gomora"
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Pearl Modiadie is still not over the fact that she lost almost two million followers on Twitter after her account was hacked.
The Metro FM presenter had to delete her old account on the micro-blogging app after it was hacked earlier this year. The media personality's new handle only has 45k followers and she's not impressed.
"(I) was on the road to 2M, now we’re on the road to 50K! 2020 giving us curveballs from every side."
In other news, Pearl Modiadie is expecting her first child and is determined to keep her privacy for as long as possible. Fans have been begging Pearl for a peek at what must be a cute baby bump but she has remained firm in her stance.
The media personality said she would not be showing off bump or baby any time soon and she has every right to decide.
A fan took to Twitter to ask the media personality for a pic of her tummy. Pearl responded that Mzansi will only see the precious bundle once he or she starts walking.
