Khanyi Mbau is one of the most trolled celebs on social media. The media personality recently took to Twitter to let her fans know that celebs are human too.
Trolling public figures amid the Covid-19 lockdown has become a norm for some tweeps who spend most of their time at home doing nothing since most industries have shut down.
Khanyi was roasted for "bleaching" her skin a few months ago but that did not stop her from continuing to post her pics on her social media platforms. The star recently advised a fan, who admitted that she's one of the tweeps who dragged her for her skin, to remember that she's also human too. Khanyi replied to the tweep:
"We need to normalise humour as public figures. But also our followers need to remember we are human too and not perfect. Everyone in this platform just wants to be heard and seen. No love lost but gained."
Social media users have taken to Khanyi's comment section to praise her for her mature response to the tweep.
"You are such a great human, keep it up."
"Wow sisi impendulo yakho (your response) shows so much maturity. I'm learning a lot from you."
"From me, I just torment you to get your attention cos I so love you and when I start I cross my fingers that you don't block me. But hey your maturity is of high level my celebrity crush."
"I'm in tears. You have many hearts. To be able to handle cyber bullying in that manner."
"One of the most chilled celebrities in SA, I always said."
"This is too beautiful and true."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Ntando Duma has mopped the floor with a troll who came for her forehead on social media. The star served the tweep with a spicy clap-back on Twitter recently.
The Queen star shared a collage of her stunning snaps on the micro-blogging app on Monday, 7 September. She described herself as a skin glow representative. The stunner also joked about her forehead in the same post. She captioned the post: "Sphongo (forehead) nation and skin glow representative."
Many of the stunner's followers flooded her timeline to compliment her for looking gorgeous and glowing on the pics. But one troll, @RolandSavage7, decided to shade the star's forehead. The troll wrote: "Does the sun set on your forehead?"
The stunner came back with a vicious response. Ntando replied to the troll, who has a dreadlocks haircut:
"Does the bush grow on your head?"
