- Social media users have dragged Somizi for "poverty-shaming" one of his stans
Somizi has left Mzansi unimpressed after he dissed one of his followers' "weak" bank balance. The media personality threw shade at the social media user who asked him about his friend Vusi Nova's sexuality.
The question by the tweep rubbed the reality TV star the wrong way. Somizi decided to hit back at the fan but Mzansi tweeps were not so impressed by his response.
Somizi took to Twitter on Thursday 3 December and posted a snap of himself and Vusi Nova being pampered while enjoying a glass of champagne. The tweep @NdwandweP28 took to his comment section and asked which team the musician plays for. Somgaga replied:
"I was gonna answer that if the answer was gonna improve your tekateking bank balance."
Other tweeps took to Somizi's comment section and dragged him for his "rude" response. Check out some of their comments below:
"Bank balance is just a possession, nothing less and nothing more. His question remains. Y'all SA celebrities should erase this bullsh*t cr*p mindset of attacking your fans with their financial status and be in need of their support afterwards Jerr!"
"How do you know his bank balance minister of TV?"
"You're out of line now, money got nothing to do with that question. Khona uyazelaphi ibank balance yakhe (how do you know his bank balance)?"
"You seem to be forgetful that you’re releasing a song at midnight and you expect the very same people with tekateking bank balances to stream it, ugugile Somizi for le k*ka maan (you're too old for this)."
"Always ready to poverty-shame other people. South African celebrities and reminding their 'fans' of how poor they are."
