With the country in a state of jeopardy, Pearl Thusi has taken to social media to advertise a mobile phone for the brand Huawei.
Yesterday might be the most dramatic day in 2019 for South Africans. A teenage student was murdered by a 45 year old man and the same day multimedia showing killings of foreigners in South Africa went viral. Xenophobic attacks in out Africa is not new.
Twitter users came for Pearl Thusi on the neck after the TV star posted about a phone instead of lending a voice to end femicide and xenophobia in South Africa.
I really miss my Amber Sunrise P30 Pro (even though I only had it for 24 hours 💔😢😔)
Together with Huawei I have decided to put together an amazing REWARD for whoever helps me find my Smartphone.

Check out the social media reaction to her tweets below
While many South African celebrities have lend a voice against femicide, a lot of them have remained quiet over the xenophobic attacks in the country leading many to believe that their silence may be a form of solidarity with the attackers.
Babes, you are a South African Woman, a celebrity. Your voice could really make a difference for us. But you crying for a phone. We crying for our lives. Timing.
