Thuli Madonsela and Floyd Shivambu have provided Twitter users and Mzansi alike with top-notch entertainment after they publicly yet subliminally called one another out on the social media platform.

While no names were mentioned, it was clear that the former public protector was speaking about the EFF when she said in a tweet that people could see that certain "Gucci-clad" people were "masquerading" as if they cared about working-class people.

"Some of us can see through misogyny masquerading as protecting black women and a self-interested Gucci-clad middle class masquerading as protectors of the working class... #DailyThought" she wrote.

The controversial tweet comes after the EFF's Julius Malema shared a picture of himself wearing a pricey pair of Gucci loafers during a Clicks protest earlier this week.

Taking to his party's defence, Floyd Shivambu quickly clapped back and shared a scathing response directly to Madonsela's tweet by questioning her eligibility as a professor. He also tokk it a step further by mentioning her personal life.

"Some of us can also see a fraud with an arranged questionable marriage to a white Stellenbosch male and a prematurely-awarded professorship to a captured person who knows nothing about scholarship and has never produced any sound academic and research outcome. #YearlyThought!" he wrote.

@CharlotteKhuma3 said:

"Floyd is a disgusting misogynist and he's proving Thuli Madonsela's point."

@_Zwoluga asked:

"How exactly did she get that professorship? I would like to see her academic research outputs and the number of postgrads students she supervised."

RooTshepoamour said:

"Say nothing about human trafficking, drugs, hijacking buildings because most of it is done by foreigners. Luckily they will never be the ruling party. They don't care about SAns, all they care about is publicity and their expensive lifestyle. Marete a lena Floyd #PutSouthAfricaFirst"
