South Africa's controversial vlogger Slik Talk is once again doing what he does best – opening a can of worms and taking the subsequent verbal beating that comes with it.
In his latest tirade, the YouTuber took aim and fired shots at actress Natasha Thahane and her rumoured beau, Orlando Pirates soccer player Thembinkosi Lorch, after the former announced her pregnancy, much to the thrill of her fans.
The 26-year-old Blood and Water Thespian posted an image on Instagram on Tuesday morning that showed her donned in only a maroon cloth, exposing her baby bump.
Her industry peers, among them Pearl Thusi, Ayanda Thabethe and Minnie Dlamini, all gushed and showered her with congratulations over the unexpected revelation.

Lorch's Pirates form questioned
While she is yet to confirm whispers that she and Lorch are indeed a pair – as she chooses to keep the truth of the matter close to her chest – Slik, as with many other social media users, was quick to conclude they were expecting the child together.
"Natasha Thahane, this is one of the worst mistakes you've ever made in your entire life. You don't bet on a guy like Lorch. [He] is a complete liability, a fraud, an overhyped media darling. This man will disappoint you every time," the YouTuber said before laying into the soccer star's dismissal season on the pitch.
In the video shared by a Twitter user, @ThisIsColbert, Slik continued, saying:
"This man is on the downward spiral of his career. His career is not the same; his stats are garbage. He has two assists and zero goals in eight games. What have you just done Natasha Thahane? Lorch is no longer a football player. He's an influencer. He doesn't care about the game but the likes and the views.
"You don't make a baby with a guy like Lorch. He's an embarrassment. I'm a Pirates supporter, and do you know how much money I've lost because of this clown? His career is no longer the same – he's an overhyped media darling, there are songs about him, and he likes the clout, he likes the fame."
As with many other previous occasions, his latest rant earned him a place on Mzansi's Twitter trends list for the better part of Tuesday afternoon and evening. There were plenty of reactions to the video on the streets as Saffas, mostly, laughed over the whole thing.

But there were also plenty more bashing the vocal armchair entertainment industry critic, with others calling him out over his "patriarchal" comments. Briefly News takes a look at some of the wildest reactions to Slik's comments below.
"Must be nice living in a patriarchal society. This boy is free free."
"When they impregnate your crush."
"For some reason, many of us had wished silently she wouldn't take the pregnancy step with Lorch. Soccer players have a negative reputation when it comes to relationships. Things will change after this baby, they won't last. Nonetheless, she looks amazing. Congratulations to her."
Slik Talk marks return with jab at Minnie Dlamini
Elsewhere, Briefly News previously reported that Slik Talk was laying low since his humiliating defeat to rapper Cassper Nyovest in their #FameVSClout boxing match in December. That is until the news of media personality Minnie Dlamini's divorce.
The controversial YouTuber appears to have had bones to pick with Minnie for some time. But after waiting for almost two months for the fire in his belly to be returned, Slik seemed to have finally found his voice.
A video of Slik's rant spread like wildfire on social media. The material was viewed at least 70 000 times at the time of publication after a Twitter user, @ThisIsColbert, shared it shortly after it was published on Slik's channel.
