Cape Town - TV host and actress Bonnie Mbuli has deactivated her Twitter account after facing backlash over her tweets about rapper Sho Madjozi’s thread addressing xenophobia.

It all started when Bonnie accused the John Cena hitmaker of not writing the thread herself. "What about the fact that these are not your words," Bonnie commented in a since-deleted tweet. 

She then implied that Sho’s PR team were behind the thread, saying: "It’s so obvious when your mainstream faves are tweeting think threads on current issues written by their PR."

The rapper didn't take kindly to Bonnie’s comments and was quick to point out she has a degree in African studies and creative writing, and was more than capable of writing an eloquent thread.

"You have to reflect on why you think a young African woman can’t write for herself. Don’t know if it’s internalized racism sexism or what? I have a degree in African studies and creative writing, and also you don’t know me, so this is very weird, [sic]" she snapped back at Bonnie.
