Instagrammer Zuki Lamani, who calls herself an “influencer”, makes her attraction to Springbok captain Siya Kolisi no secret, even sometimes referring to him as “ubaby”.
The Springbok captain’s wife posted just one emoji in response to an Instagram picture showing him and a female admirer, but it was enough to get her slammed on social media.
When she posted a pic of herself and Kolisi together, in which they can be seen smiling at each other in a way some might consider a little too familiar, she probably didn’t expect a reply from the rugby player’s wife, Rachel.
The flanker’s better-half posted just one emoji by way of a reaction.
The ‘cup and straw’ emoji is Rachel’s way of calling the Instagrammer “thirsty,” which in this case means not that she needs a drink of water but that she is unable to conceal her obvious attraction to the rugby star.
The incident has caused much debate on social media.
Some reacted to Rachel’s emoji on Instagram by calling her “insecure” and saying that she was “embarrassing” herself, and others echoed these sentiments on Twitter.
Did we forget the part where Siya Kolisi is a whole captain of the South African Rugby team? Are people not supposed to thirst over him because of Rachel? Haska
