Lerato Kganyago was one of the many popular personalities that indirectly lambasted actress, Bonnie Mbuli, following her dismissive tweets allegedly directed at Sho Madjozi.
Bonnie Mbuli topped the trends list on Twitter on Sunday, 8 September 2019, after indirectly accusing rapper, Sho Madjozi, of not writing her own thread on the recent violent unrest in Johannesburg CBD. The former Afternoon Express host has since received social media backlash. Media personalities that are close to model and actress, Pearl Thusi, also used the uproar to remind social media users of their reaction towards Bonnie Mbuli “bullying” Pearl Thusi.
One of the first personalities to lambast Bonnie was friend and popular female hip-hop DJ, Ms Cosmo. She tweeted a rhetorical question during the backlash that Bonnie was receiving on the alleged tweets towards Sho Madjozi, asking, “Why is Bonnie so angry all the time? Where did your light go my sister?” Rapper, Reason asked which Bonnie social media users were referring to, to which another user replied, “Bonnie (M)bully.”
Babes Wodumo’s allegedly hacked account that has shared its scathing opinion on a variety of topical issues and media personalities, added its commentary on the Bonnie Mbuli and Sho Madjozi saga. The account labelled Bonnie Mbuli as “biltong” and a “used teabag.” The latter was in response to Lerato Kganyago’s alleged dig at Bonnie.
On Sunday, 8 September 2019, the Metro FM radio personality took to Twitter to state, “Told you your Twitter feminists are bullies!” Lerato did not name anyone specifically. However, the comments on the post implied that she was referring to Bonnie Mbuli. The common comment referred to “m-bullies,” while another follower shared in the ridicule, writing, “I see what you did there.”
However, a follower asked Lerato to, “Please name the person who is the bully. There are so many feminists online who are allies and who help women, who fight for women, who advocate for women; online and offline.”
Told you your Twitter Feminists are Bullies!!!
