Pearl Thusi criticised for her interview with Khanyi Mbau where she cried

Another week means another reason for Pearl Thusi to be torn down by the Twitter streets, and the good sis seems to be taking better than she has taken most of her blows on Twitter. Maybe sis is finally healing because wow; how many times can one girl get dragged?

As previously reported Pearl has a moment on the latest episode of BET’s “Behind the Story.” Pearl again addressed the matter of constantly being dragged over being team “light-skinned.” In a three-minute rant of television time that we will never get back again, Mama Pantha let trolls have it. While the clip suggests that sis was bearing her heart to the world, she still managed to drag all those that are “jealous” over her fair complexion.

The clip shared on social media might have had people questioning whether they might have gone a little too hard on the sis. It was after watching the whole interview that tweeps went back on Twitter and started the real roasting of Pearl Thusi. This was for a variety of reasons, so let us start with the first one.

Pearl’s interviewing skills were again the question. Firstly, the interview was a part two special, which meant the exposition questions on Khanyi Mbau should have been completed during the first part. Therefore the idea that even in the second part she was still asking questions about Mandla Mthembu and Khanyi’s “Muvango” days- How sway?

Second, was again, Pearl’s interview skills. A matter that has been highlighted numerous times, is the matter of who is being interviewed and who is the interviewee. More than just the rant, Pearl had more screen time during the interview than Khanyi. Khanyi’s answers were more succinct and shorter than the questions that Pearl did. And when she was not asking questions, she was talking about “we,” instead of Khanyi as it was her interview. Again, how sway?

Lastly, was Pearl’s suggested tone deaf response to the matter of her complexion. No one condones bullying, but the matter of colourism far extends just Pearl. There are many fair actresses and entertainers that do not engage, or more accurately put, deny their privilege because of their complexion. But not Pearl, and again it is a matter of how sway?

But sis has let it be known in a series of tweets that she is healing and could not care about the backlash. Well, that is until the next episode of BET’s “Behind the Story.”
