Actress and media personality Pearl Thusi is at loggerheads with trolls attacking her skin colour while living her best life in Brazil. In a tweet that has since been deleted, a tweep told Thusi that she was ugly.
The excited Pearl Thusi shared jaw-dropping bikini pictures while on holiday in Brazil. Little did she know that scores of tweeps would jump on the bandwagon to attack her looks. From a tweet that has since been deleted, another tweep proceeded to claim that had Thusi been non-light-skinned, her beauty would remain questionable.
Didn’t even bother editing these!
Thank you Brazil! 🇧🇷🏽💚💛
Nothing can kill my vibe right now.
Tell anyone who’s try a bring me down.
I’m not about to act a clown.
No make up , no edits. Just me. 🏽 pic.twitter.com/f7K5zeGGrs

Firstly, the tweet complimented Thusi’s skin and beautiful natural hair before setting her on fire. The compliments felt rather backhanded as the tweet continued to take a dig at the actress and media personality by calling her ugly.
Wena you have nice skin and hair but umubi kancane🤏

Over the years, Pearl Thusi has been very vocal about how much bullying she has endured because of her skin colour. Thusi has gravely addressed the constant and continued torment and trolling of her of the way she looks. On numerous occasions, Thusi has admitted to having been told she was not pretty but only light-skinned and that she was the industry’s favorite based on her skin tone and natural, curly hair.
Taking to Twitter to defend herself, Thusi relays the amount of suffering she has succumbed to just because of the way she looks. Taking the high road, she has since wished the haters and trolls would heal from the continued hate they have towards her.
Imagine having to deal with this your entire life.
Ppl used to say this to me as a child & it was always people who were darker than me who’d say this. I never understood why someone would say I’d be ugly if I looked like them.
Self hate is the ugly thing here.
I hope sis heals. https://t.co/q7nE2f5bMe
