Sasha-Lee Olivier was officially named the new Miss South Africa on Thursday, but not everyone was excited to see her wearing the crown. The 26-year-old took the reins from Zozibini Tunzi, who won the Miss Universe title in December.
“What reflection is the new Miss South Africa to the majority black girl?” she asked her 137-thousand plus followers.

Some Twitter users clapped back at Ntsiki’s post, telling her that Sasha-Lee was reflecting that “natural beauty and brains wins”.
One tweep accused the controversial poet of finding fault with just about everything.
“You have issues, you fight just about everything…” one man wrote
You have issues, you fight just about everything…u’re reflecting

I don’t understand the tweet. Does it mean what do young black girls see in Miss South Africa?
