Advice is something you could take wholeheartedly or with a pinch of salt unless you share that advice on social media. A local man, who goes by 'Dr Chauke' on Twitter, sparked a fierce debate on the app after advising tweeps to "stay away from unemployed women".
His tweet has already been liked over 7 500 times since it's upload earlier this week. The debate in the replies is quite intense. While a lot of men agreed with his advice and took it to heart, a lot of women fought the idea.
Many women have defended themselves by saying that unemployment is not a choice as they are qualified but are unable to find a stable job.
Take a look at the tweet that started it all below:
This young lady tried to defend unemployment but didn't survive the typical "this you" response:
Take a look at some of the other responses to Dr Chauke's tweet:
"But unemployment isn't a choice though, I know many graduates who are not working and entrepreneurship isn't for everyone, kodwa ke I guess y'all should stay away as you're told."
"I'm unemployed with a qualification, I'm looking for a job, I ain't ashamed... Reading this makes me so proud of myself for being my own person, doing things for myself and not bothering anyone. The kind of love that's given based on what you do can miss me."
In similar news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a woman who sparked a debate by saying the "ANC needs a five-year break". The African National Congress (ANC) has been judged and criticised for years by many South Africans and @Ma_LoJ is the latest to share her thoughts on the party.
Her tweet quickly gained traction on the social networking site with many South Africans in full agreement with her statement. Her tweet was posted over the weekend and is almost on 2 000 likes.
While the majority of Saffa tweeps shared reasons why they agreed with her statement, there was a few who shared reasons why a lot of people would disagree. She unintentionally sparked a fierce debate with topics such as corruption and social grants being brought up.
