Miss South Africa 2021 Lalela Mswane posed for pictures with Jerusalem's Deputy Mayor Fleur Hassan-Nahoum. A post of the two was shared on Twitter by @StandWithUs, an organisation "supporting Israel around the world".
The post has angered many South Africans who are fighting against the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Social media users have labelled Mswane 'Miss Apartheid' due to Israel being considered widely as an apartheid state.
Many Saffa netizens have stood strong by their words that Mswane does not represent them. This follows the Government's withdrawal of their support for Mswane's participation in the Miss Universe pageant.

"All the best @Lalela_lali. SA has a relationship with Israel, you are not the one to change that. SA has a duty to cut ties with Israel, don’t you dare allow politicians to use you."
@mabonelton responded with:
"Wena Miss Apartheid don't come back here. #FreePalestine."
"She’s not representing South Africa!"
"Not Lalela embarrassing us."
"Exactly the type of behaviour one would expect from a Miss Apartheid South Africa. It only makes sense when you use her full title."
"Wishing her all best and enjoy your stay in Israel."
Miss SA Lalela Mswane thanks Mzansi for "overwhelming love" as she prepares for Miss Universe
Previously, Briefly News reported that Lalela Mswane thanked Mzansi for their support. The beauty queen is currently in Israel for the Miss Universe pageant. She has received tons of flack for wanting to participate in the pageant, even losing Government's support.
Mswane expressed her deepest gratitude for the peeps who overwhelmed her with love and support. She further thanked the people of Mzansi for "embracing" her warmly and allowing for her journey to be "incredibly special".
She shared behind the scenes snaps from her first photo shoot as Miss South Africa to accompany the heartfelt post. For the first time in a while, Mswane did not deactivate the comments section under her post.
