Jackie Phamotse has made Mzansi shake with her recent allegations about how influencers use snakes to attain wealth. The author caused a heated debate among social media users as they shared their thoughts on the matter. Pearl Modiadie also jokingly weighed in by re-posting an old picture she took kissing a snake.
Pearl Modiadie decided to stir the pot of trending news yesterday when she took to Twitter to re-share a picture of herself kissing a giant snake. In the now-deleted post, Pearl took a light-hearted approach to the topic with an amusing caption talking about snakes.
Some social media users thought she was shading Jackie, but she was quick to put those assumptions to rest, saying:
"Don’t do this! I really like Jackie. I’ve got all her books!"
Looking back on the incident, Pearl said she did not know how she managed to snap that picture:
"I don’t know how I was able to take this pic. I hate snakes!!"
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that controversial author Jackie Phamotse is trending on social media after she dropped a video discussing some very dark things. The media personality accused certain famous faces of using snakes and witchcraft to achieve success.
Although she did not name anyone, Jackie dropped enough hints to make some social media users draw their own conclusions. Jackie said that celebs will lie about getting endorsements and selling products but actually be using dark magic to get money.
She also added that there are usually a few men behind some celebrities, funding their lifestyles. Jackie went on to say that it was the reason many women hid their boyfriends and used the excuse of wanting privacy.
Her claims rocked social media as many weighed in with divided opinions. Some social media users felt that she was just looking for attention while others shared her suspicions. Some even pulled out an old video shared by Sbahle Mpisane of a snake casually slithering in someone's house. Scary!
