A new Miss South Africa has been crowned, and she is the beautiful and articulate Sasha-Lee Olivier.
The ‘plus size’ beauty was officially awarded the title (the first ever to hold the crown) on Wednesday by pageant organisers after her successor Zozibini Tunzi won Miss Universe in December.
Miss SA made the announcement on social media, but instead of the focus being on praising our new queen, the news evoked a reaction we didn’t see coming.
Many tweeps were unimpressed to say the least – they strongly felt that Zozibini should continue her reign whilst juggling her Miss Universe duties.
“Zozibini” meaning 2 of them. She clearly can wear both crowns. Nxa! You must Aaaks! Miss SA pic.twitter.com/c84xopPM1m

I don’t recognize sosha Lee. Zozi is and will remain our miss South Ah🙄. She can run this country from the towers of New York City, she just needs advice and counsel of his excellency president muhammadu Buhari😐

Others felt she won by ‘default’ and took nasty and unnecessary swipes at her;
Who was waiting for this?

While others still wondered if she would reclaim the pageant prizes from Zozi;:
I also want to know, where are the prizes? https://t.co/yvA8KqE2gF

On the flipside, some fans came to Sasha’s defense and called for an end to cyber-bullying;
I Honestly did not expect such backlash regarding Sasha-lee being Miss SA , i was under the impression that people knew the pageant rules and that one cannot reign using 2 titles simultaneously, Zozi will always be the best Miss SA, a game changer, a trailblazer but dont do this.

SAns are special people. Suddenly they acting as if they not familiar with beauty pageant rules lol. Zozi belongs to the Universe now. Let’s allow Sasha-Lee to fulfill her new responsibilities as Miss SA in peace.

Laws knows I love this app and grateful because it has contributed immensely to my career. It changed my life.
But, the people here can be vile. The vitriol being spewed towards Sasha-Lee is disgusting.
