@EdwardMaps said:

"Any guy or lady who protects an abuser is definitely one. As long as the police confirmed the bruises, then it is true. It's good she went immediately without waiting to heal."

@Kene_M_ shared:

"It is shocking and disappointing that the men on Twitter are calling her names and have already concluded that she is lying. South African men have normalised violence against women to the point that they get defensive and more disrespectful when called out for it."

@DuragActivist posted:

"They are dragging her because she didn’t report to Twitter detectives."

@FulufheloMakha2 replied:

"It's so sad to see how most men here on Twitter are questioning her experience. Police confirmed her bruises, but they are still calling her names. I really wonder if these men have sisters."

@dima_onzima commented:

"A good move. I'm glad she went to the police with proof. I hope she will not drop charges later and go back to him. Women in abusive relationships do that most of the time "
