Kelly Khumalo has taken to social media to slam a certain group of users who collectively call themselves ‘Black Twitter’.
The star weighed in the conversation of bullying that has been happening in the country and said that Black Twitter fuelled the bullying culture.
“I have seen how the majority of this country endorses bullying, even giving it a name: Black Twitter'. And you are surprised when your children follow in your footsteps.”
She went on to say:
“You are teaching them. If you want them to be kind humans, you start with being kind, even on the internet.”
Kelly called on people to fix themselves first before trying to fix the country.
The songstress then addressed those who cheer on the bullies.
“You are the reason it continues. You are endorsing bullying.”
Briefly News previously reported that Kelly Khumalo has never been one to mince her words. The media personality recently took to social media to share her thoughts about people speaking out against gender-based violence(GBV) only once their relationships sour. Kelly said that often people chose to be secretive in relationships while things were going well.
Speaking as a victim of GBV herself, the singer said that often they encourage people to “drink water and mind their business” when others try to intervene and help, and only choose to speak out when the relationship ends.
Kelly went on to say that GBV must be exposed even while the victim wants to continue being in the relationship. She said that way the couple can seek counselling and get the help they need.
Meanwhile Briefly News reported that Enhle Mbali has been loud and open about the horror she allegedly endured during her marriage. The mother of two recently appeared in court after she accused her estranged husband Black Coffee of abuse.
