While stating the facts according to her, Buhle advised Phil Mphela to seek the truth from reputable sources before presenting such claims. Her clarifying tweet was followed by a mini-rant that sought to clear her name from a diva reputation. She said:

“I was also “fired” from my last job! A job I left because I felt I needed growth and didn’t feel it was possible in that environment. Next thing I’m labelled hard to work with, “a diva.” I have never been that person. People in any production I have worked with can attest to this!”

“So in essence you were fired or "relieved of your role" like he said?”

@TuChelsea12 added:

“Technically what she explained there is the same as what Phil said. If you decline the job am giving you I will have no option but to fire you. Coz she didn't resign she just didn't accept the role given to her (technically insubordination).”
