Somizi has been trending on Twitter over the comments he made about Black Twitter…
The Idols SA judge has become the latest star to ‘fall’ after he was dragged by tweeps for telling South African social media users not to be negative and have a bad attitude
But instead of paying heed to his advice, tweeps decided to ‘cancel’ him instead.
Somizi is heard saying in the video, “Stop with your Black Twitter mentality…
“And this Black Twitter thing must also end to have a negative connotation… Black Twitter should be about black excellence… black support… black celebration.
“Black Twitter should be about nothing but positivity… let’s change the narrative in thinking Black Twitter is only about dragging.”
Watch what he had to say below:

The video has since gone viral and #SomiziMustFall has been trending since Wednesday.
Surprisingly, many tweeps agree with Somizi’s sentiments and have created their own hashtag #SomiziMustRise, which is also currently also trending
Take a look at what tweeps are saying about the whole debacle…

Somizi should know that we don’t take orders form him, we also don’t interfere when he redicule contestants at Idols SA. His connections won’t save him this time #SomiziMustFall pic.twitter.com/3Qvbs7O9o4

Somizi is one of the gays that stood out and made it possible for other gays to be confident about their gender type in the entertainment industry! #SomiziMustRise

#SomiziMustRise Lockdown really created a nasty black Twitter, some people are good at criticising others but yet there’s nothing that they bring on the table. To Somizi, Shine black child #malambanemustfall. pic.twitter.com/tKGmPwF0rD

Seems like the jury – or should we say Black Twitter – is out on this one!
