Durban - When popular sports presenter, Carol Tshabalala tweeted a picture of her new gold DStv remote telling her followers how much she was loving the special edition remote, little did she know she was pressing play to ridicule and laughter - with some cheekily asking if the remote stopped repeats.

On Tuesday, the SuperSpor, known affectionately as "Simply Carol" by her fans shared two photographs on Twitter of her showing the back and front of the DStv special edition gold remote.

— Carol Tshabalala (@SimplyCarol8) August 14, 2018 Tweeps started asking her some of the most unexpected questions, like whether the remote allows you to skip repeated shows or if it allows you to touch the people on TV.

To which she replied:

Yebo! You choose what you wanna watch ☺️ #DSTV
— Carol Tshabalala (@SimplyCarol8) August 15, 2018 Then others thought throwing shade would damped her mood, but she had a comeback for them. One Tweep said “You are not the only one who has that remote So chill baeb”.
Her response:

It’s offered to the public so I sho know I’m not. Guess I’m not allowed to love it too neh 🤷🏾‍♀️😛

While Tshabalala was simply admiring her new gadget, some people thought it was a way for her to promote DStv’s new remote control. Which is not only available to specific people, but to everyone.
