- DJ Maphorisa couldn't believe it when he was targeted by social media trolls on Tuesday, 1 September
- The star shared pics of himself wearing a colourful outfit he thought would impress Mzansi tweeps
- The tweeps were not feeling it, they instead compared him to a clown, SA flag and a multi-coloured jumping castle
DJ Maphorisa has revealed that comments from Twitter don't impress him that much. The musician recently shared that he prefers Instagram comments than those from the micro-blogging app.
The star's confidence was hurt by the popular app's trolls when he shared two snaps of himself in a saucy colourful outfit. Instead of praising him for the outfit that Phori believed was all sorts of drip, the trolls compared him to a clown because of its colours.
One tweep, @TaZLeeArtSA3, commented that the Amapiano producer's outfit reminded her of the colours from her creche's playground. She shared a pic of multi-coloured tyres from the playground.
Another troll @Mokgatla_Mora told Madumane that he looked like a jumping castle in his snaps.
Other tweeps also took to the star's comment section and shaded him for the outfit. Some of them compared him the national flag while others claimed he looked like a seven-coloured Mzansi dish.
Seeing all the shade his multi-coloured outfit received, Maphorisa took to the app and wrote:
"I love Instagram comments more than Twitter, Twitter ke Satan shame."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Nandi Madida was also a victim of the social media mob after an innocent post took a turn for the worst.
Madida took to her Twitter account to share how the toddlers at her son's school recognised her as Nala, the character she played in Black Is King. The tweet seemed innocent enough, until social media users started picking it apart.
Many were not convinced that toddlers would even know anything about the movie, let alone watch it. Social media users began calling Nandi out for lying. The actress eventually deleted her tweet but it was not before Mzansi social media users screenshotted it for record-keeping.
Even though she deleted the tweet, Nandi was a good sport about it all. She said:
"Even I’m laughing at the comments. Twitter is the most entertaining platform. It’s an extreme sport and not for the fainthearted. No one is safe. You have to know how to laugh at yourself!"
