The Queen actress Zenande Mfenyana has Black Twitter divided after she issued a strongly-worded response to a fan who offered her pregnancy advice
The soapie star was ridiculed on social media after her DM with a fan leaked online.
The fan sent Zenande a message encouraging her not to pay any attention to trolls mocking her pregnancy appearance, but to laugh it off as “you will be back to normal again”.
But Zenande – known for her sharp tongue – did not appreciate the unsolicited advice – and let the woman, who also happens to be pregnant, know exactly that in what many deemed a savage clapback.
Take a look at their interaction…

But the jury was out on the incident.
Some tweeps dragged the outspoken star for being ‘rude’.
Zenande didn’t have to be rude cause I think the lady was trying to be supportive. pic.twitter.com/qG66Zy32Ru

Zenande is rude and the fact that she said “tsek” to another pregnant woman makes her krwader!

Others claimed she had every right to respond the way she did and slated the fan for ‘not minding her own business’.

#ZenandeMustFall people think celebrities are not human beings. No one is perfect and if #Zenande what she said is wrong let it stays between themselves. Respect others regardless of social status. She owes nobody nothing.. pic.twitter.com/1WyxambleE

Meanwhile Zenande seemed to respond to all the fuss via her Instagram stories, where she posted messages from her fans speaking out about body-shaming pregnant women.
Do you think Zenande spoke out too harshly or was she justified for her choice of words?
