Miss SA Zozibini Tunzi has spoken out against trolls who have left negative comments about her blackness.
Tunzi has been vocal when it comes to social justice issues such as gender-based violence and femicide.
During the pageant, when asked by Anele why women had to keep smiling, she said: "We have absolutely no reason to keep smiling because South African women are dying every day.
"And mostly people are doing nothing about it. I think it's time we stop asking women what to do and start asking perpetrators to do better, to be better, to start treating women the way that they deserve to be treated. It is not up to us, it is up to the perpetrators to start doing right. "
Taking to her Instagram page on Wednesday, Tunzi shared a post dedicated to brown skinned girls concerning the negative comments she'd received due to her blackness, saying the comments received was nothing new for women of colour.
