Mzansi actress and media personality Kuli Roberts has come out to publicly slam a troll who posted that she had passed on. A Facebook user called Collen Bongani Maduna took to the platform to share that Kuli Roberts has passed on.
“Rest In Peace Kuli Roberts. Lala Ngoxolo Sisi.”
Kuli addressed the post head on by apologising to all those who were affected by it.
“I’d like to apologise to anyone who saw this. This boy needs to finish Matric.”
This is not the first time a South African celebrity has had to endure a hoax death. Briefly News reported that legendary musician Yvonne Chaka Chaka was left fuming when she came across her own obituary online recently.
The veteran entertainer learned that scammers were faking her death and collecting funds using her name. Taking to social media, Chaka Chaka angrily called the fraudsters out and labelled them as “mean”.
“Some FOOL posted my obituary and even asked people to contribute in a GoFundMe acc. For my burial. How mean can you be?”
Briefly News gathered that the post appears to be from an online entertainment publication. They claim to be grieving with the family of Yvonne Chaka Chaka.
The post left social media users outraged on her behalf:
“This is very disrespectful and evil. So sorry mama.”
“Sad...We were speaking about a person is foolish and foolish. You could be foolish and a bit clever. A fool who is foolish is as good as dead.”
“Shame, so sorry about that, happens at times but it's not good. I guess it's the times we living in, people have lost ubuntu.”
“ONLY GOD knows! He needs to be put to his place! May you live even longer! Playing around with the princess of Africa is dangerous! God bless!”
