It seems that the official Gauteng Weather Twitter account was in a shady mood when they dragged actress Khanyi Mbau during a heatwave announcement. 

In a spicy tweet, the Gauteng Weather Twitter sent out a warning of the heatwave hitting the region saying that people with fair skin, compromised immune systems and Khanyi Mbau need to stay out of the sun. 

Tweeps were not feeling the unnecessary shade thrown and the local star with some saying that the account manager was being a cyberbully and saying that it was being a troll.

Speaking to TsishaLIVE about the shady tweet, Mbau said she was unbothered by the tweet and that as a public figure she is bound to evoke emotion out of people. 

"No! I have no issue with the tweet or how people may feel about me. I am a public figure, I am bound to evoke emotion in many."
