Whoooooo shem! Come for our national treasure and you’ll quickly realize that Black Twitter doesn’t play on the TL! And South Africans are hoping the tweep who questioned the appearance of Mzansi’s own Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi learned this lesson the hard and fast way.
The French tweep posted a side by side picture of Zozi and Miss Sweden, alongside the question: “Which of the two is the most beautiful, without ideology, according to you?”
If you ask me, Miss Sweden is sure pretty but she looks like a regular commercial girl. While Miss SA looks like Miss Universe! pic.twitter.com/ljJOjgiLPm

Black Twitter saw red! They quickly accused the tweep of racism and being a sore loser.
Roughly translated “Blurgh blurgh we’re racist assholes and the pretty white girl on the right should have won it’s not faaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiir SJWs are RUINING EVERYTHING AGAIN”
(Note: Miss Sweden didn’t even make the top 20)

Many tweeps claimed the South African beauty was unique and had an edge off the European one, who many believe ‘blended in’ with the crowd.
😂I’m a born and bred Afrikaans man, raised on a plaas and everything. My vote would defo’s go to our Miss SA. Miss Sweden gives you the 90’s loreal tv add vibe. 20-30yrs too late. Big ups to our Miss SA, or wait.. Miss Universe!👊🏻👊🏾

Miss Sweden looks like 70% of Afrikaner girls in Rustenburg.

Others claimed pitting women up against each other is not cool and urged Black Twitter not to resort to name-calling.
I see them both as Beautiful as they are.
Please don’t drag people into shaming the beauty of Miss Sweden by saying otherwise.
Actually, all the contestants were Beautiful in their own way. https://t.co/aCdE46xKac

Please don’t insult Miss Sweden in response to this tweet goading us. You’re playing into the racist behind the account’s strategy.
We can be better 💫💛

Every contestant was beautiful in their own way, but our Zozi was just a little extra!
