- A recent post on social media of a girl carrying maize meal on her birthday posted by the controversial @AdvoBarryRoux has once again divided Mzansi followers
- While many argue that the mother is teaching the young girl good manners, some allege the mom is a bit harsh on the kid
- On the other hand, some have expressed their opinions on @AdvoBarryRoux whom they believe doesn’t know the whole story behind the girl and the mother
A birthday is regarded as one of the most special days for all of us where one expects gifts but it's a different story when your mom doesn’t seem to recognize or care about the day's significance.
This has divided the South African Twitter community after an image on the social media application depicting a mother and her daughter on a shopping spree.
However, it seems to be a different shopping spree where one can expect that of new clothing outfits but this one is of groceries.
The poor little girl is robed in a stylish outfit and a ribbon across her top body may suggest it’s her birthday but the fact that she is carrying a sack of maize meal has caught the attention of Mzansi users.
Some believe the mother is a bit harsh as some have related to the way the mother is treating her kid, but some also believe the mother is responsible, to buy food and feed the little soul.
Briefly News takes a look at the humorous comments as the picture by @AdvoBarryRoux has ruffled some feathers.
“I would take that thing off.”
“Lol I love this mom reminds me of my late mom...even if it’s your birthday, you will clean and even prepare food for the family.”
“So the family must starve because it’s her birthday? You don’t know the whole story for heaven's sake!! What if she lives with her old grandmother and young pre-school kids?"
“It’s probably for her braai aw.”
Briefly News also reported on a story where a young woman bought herself a car on her birthday - one lucky South African lady did not need to imagine.
The beautiful young woman with the Twitter handle @Thlolo15March recently headed online to celebrate her birthday.
In the post, she also shared that she had bought herself a new car in celebration of the special day.
Her heartwarming post includes a clip of herself unveiling her new baby at the car dealership earlier today.
