Johannesburg - Poor Minnie Dlamini. There she was just trying to beat the heat like the rest of us, and all she got was a little shade from Ntsiki Mazwai.

After a picture of Minnie's ex bae,  Itumeleng Khune, went viral on Thursday (see the snap here), Ntsiki and the rest of Twitter were discussing Itumeleng and whether in fact his new bae is an "upgrade" from Minnie.

That's when Ntsiki launched into one of the most confusing compliments we've seen this year: "I will always love Minnie Dlamini.....just wish she would read more ?? I like girls who sound smart." Huh?

She then went on about how it's quite clear when someone doesn't read enough - and she's not talking about that Mills and Boon novel next to your bed.

Ntsiki's comments come only months after Pearl Thusi came under fire for a similar cyanide-laced compliment she gave to Trevor Noah (more on that here).

Okay, new year's resolution ladies: try giving compliments without the dagger.
