Mzansi media personality Pearl Thusi has criticized those body-shaming fellow media personality Anele Mdoda.
Anele Mdoda had long described Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland as the ugliest of the girl band, and although she had been asked several times to apologize to the American, she was adamant she wouldn’t.
Just recently, Kelly Rowland had rocked the same swimwear Anele Mdoda had worn on her vacation to the Maldives, invariably bringing up the conversation about Anele’s opinion of Kelly.
Also, by this time, Americans had taken notice of Anele disparaging their icon, and they denounced Anele in social media comments, with some loudly calling her unreasonable.
Amid the storm of criticism dropping on Anele Mdoda’s had, some critics had body-shamed her. Reacting to the body-shaming of Anele, Pearl Thusi had stated she thought people had outgrown body-shaming others.
While some fans agreed with her, others thought Anele got what she deserved, as she had no reason to make Kelly Rowland feel bad about herself in the first place. A Twitter user with the handle @_SonOfMars commented: “Yes, let’s call people ugly then pull out the body-shaming card when it backfires.”
So this thing with Anele has gone straight to body shaming. Intense.
I thought there was a universal agreement that we’d all outgrown that.
