In true Lasizwe style, the star portrayed how women from different ethnicities would react to DJ Black Coffee's historical win.

The white woman seemed to understand the importance of the gong and was very calm while supposedly congratulating Black Coffee. The coloured woman was portrayed to speak in a rather angry manner while the black woman was illiterate and did not even understand what the Grammys were all about.

Lasizwe was dragged by Twitter users who felt that the star is always degrading black women in his skits.

"Maybe this is your opportunity to teach LaSizwe and other content creators who emulate black mothers in satire, about why referencing black mothers, as illiterate, harmful. The same way we were later taught about Leon Schuster’s movies after years of finding them funny. Teach!"

@PhoenixMcforley noted:

"Lasizwe, like other black men in "comedy" built his career off the humiliation of black women and twirling for the A4 page folks. I'm glad that he's finally getting dragged for this shit. His entire content is rooted in anti-blackness."

@notaytae added:

"I called Lasizwe out on his content and how he has none without mocking black women over a year ago and he blocked me. here we are still."
