Tbo Touch drove pass a beggar on Tuesday, and decided to tweet some words of wisdom

He suggested that the man should change his “mental disposition”.

“The only difference between the guy I just drove pass begging in streets and myself is our mental disposition. Let’s change how we THINK,” he tweeted.

Twitter users slammed the media mogul for being “insensitive”.

“People like Tbo Touch need to understand that poverty enslaves and entraps the mind. It’s always easy to talk from a point of privilege,” one user posted.

Some Twitter users reminded Tbo Touch that he sold out the ‘Data Must Fall’ campaign just so he could get a deal with MTN for his online radio

“When I saw Tbo Touch trending I was like “thanks data has fallen”, kanti is about some piece of rubbish he tweeted,” one Tweep posted.

Tbo Touch trended on Twitter for his comment, but he has yet to respond to the backlash.

Instead, he celebrated a major Touch HD milestone.

That’s one way to ignore the haters!
