Forgive yourself too babe. Mistakes happen— Future Hendrixxx (@Pam_News) March 7, 2020
Others were not too forgiving and relayed their own experience of being victims of drunk drivers.
Most of the people sympathizing with you have done the same some time in their life. I’m sorry .... I can’t say the same for me. I’ve never touched a drop of alcohol in my life and I lost a close friend to a drunken driver so I’m not as forgiving.— Doc Hassim (@JoeSoap88) March 7, 2020
Go nale di uber le di bolt I won’t lie I’m actually really disappointed; won’t act like I’m forgiving nope.— Kekana Mapula (@BMKekana) March 7, 2020
Some tweeps even suggested the only reason Moloi chose to come clean was for damage control reasons.
