Pearl Thusi Disses D*T*
Pearl Thusi Disses D*T*
Pearl Thusi seems to want to shake the table, but this time in a way that will not get her into trouble with the only national broadcaster that she is currently affiliated with. And luckily, this time around she had the consensus of tweeps.
The star took to Twitter to lambaste what we can only assume is the popular paid national broadcaster. The “Queen Sono” lead actress took to the platform to write about a common matter that many have already spoken about. Without naming names, but hinting to the broadcaster enough for everyone to understand what she was talking about. Pearl wondered why she pays a monthly subscription fee, to just watch advertisements on the platform.
I just realised on D*T* I pay subscription AND watch ads 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

How she named the broadcaster was with a suggestive, D*T*. And let us be honest, it does not take long to figure out which platform she is actually referring to. This prompted commentary from other social media users that actually agreed with Pearl on the matter. The agreeable comments might be why she has yet to receive backlash or have her sentiments trend for the drag.
And sometimes the ads are about the very thing you’ve subscribed for 😂😂 like c’mon, I’ve already paid for this. Why are you advertising this to me when I’m already using it 🤦🏾♀️

As a result the post has flown under the radar, therefore making sure that the bag is still secure for the actress and personality. I mean, who would be interested in watching an episode of BET’s “Behind the Story with” anyone else but Mama Pantha and her fire questions.

In the past, the good sis has been dodging bullets from the platform. One of the recent drags she had to address was her, “hectic” comment. Lost? A quick recap. Pearl was one of the media personalities that commented on Khanyi Mbau’s post on her late father’s memorial and funeral service. The leading lady took to Instagram and wrote, “hectic” on the public service announcement. Once her comment reached the Twitter streets she was labelled all kinds of things like, “attention seeking,” and “insensitive.”
However as we have come to learn from one of our favourite Zulu girls, she did not cower away. Pearl in turn suggested that tweeps will get used to the phrase through her constant use of the word. But she was not alone in pushing for the normalisation of the word, but enlisted the help of friend, DJ Zinhle “Sthe” Jiyane. The two have taken to use the word on their Instagram stories to make it clear that there was no offense intended with the word.
