- Mzansi social media users have reacted after Kefilwe Mabote lost her court case against a local publication
- Kefilwe took the publication to court after it allegedly wrote a misleading, derogatory and defamatory article about her
- Some social media users slammed Kefilwe for taking the publication to court after it reportedly called her a slay queen
Kefilwe Mabote has lost her R1 million lawsuit against a local publication. Mabote took Sunday World to court after it allegedly branded her as a "slay queen" who was on a "bedroom roll" of wealthy men.
The stunner felt that the article, published on 11 October, 2020 was misleading, derogatory, and defamatory.
Social media users have shared mixed reactions to the ruling of the court over the popular social media influencer's case. Peeps have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the outcome of the case. Check out some of the comments below:
"Kefilwe Mabote now has to pay the newspaper's lawyers for the cost of them defending the newspaper. This is basically the court saying you are wasting our time and money... And the newspaper calls her a slay queen, again. This is not the States... Instagram life."
"Why would you spend years slaying all over the world only to sue a news publication that calls you a slay queen? The law protects us all. Sunday World published the article calling Kefilwe Mabote a slay queen because Kefi herself uses similar wording to refer to herself. You don’t sue because you woke up and decided after years of slaying it’s no longer fashionable."
"Y’all are plain stupid if you think Sunday World will pay Kefilwe Mabote R1 million with that kind of statement. Her lawyers already lost that case. The demands are plain stupid. Y’all like treating these selfish slay queens like they are feminists."
In related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported that Kefilwe Mabote also weighed in on the allegations by author Jackie Phamotse that most Mzansi celebs use snakes and dark magic to attain wealth and maintain their "soft life" statuses.
The stunner indirectly shaded Jackie on social media when she shared a snap of herself living a soft life on a plane and two clips where she's holding two different snakes. The multi-award winning digital media influencer captioned her post:
"Zi-right Zi-sssnakes? People will now be scared of sabaweling a Ssssoft life and going to Ssssnake parks because bazothi 'Sssssithwele'."
When loosely translated, Kefilwe is expressing that people will now be scared of living a soft life because they'll be accused of using black magic and snakes.
Briefly.co.za also reported that DJ Fresh took to social media to share a snap of himself posing with a big python amid the trending topic of Mzansi celebs being accused of using snakes and black magic to attain their wealth.
Fresh took to Instagram last Monday and shared the old snap he took when he was still at 5FM. The veteran radio host captioned his post: "Welcome to #FreshOn947, WE have been expecting you!!!"
