Reality television star Lasizwe Dambuza ruffled feathers this past weekend when he posted images of himself at his father, taxi boss Menzi Mcunu’s funeral.

You might ask why pictures of himself would create a stir on social media, and rightfully so, however, these were not regular pictures.

The YouTuber posted images of himself crying, visibly upset and in one picture he is seen being held by family members.

The star also wore a full white outfit, which was inspired by Billy Porter's Emmy Awards outfit, which also became a topic of discussion for social media users. But one of the biggest takeaways from the images was the set of claw rings he sported on his left hand.

Taking to Twitter, Lasizwe posted the images and said: “RIP Dad, till we meet again... tell my mom I said I’ll be okay, thank you for raising a dynamite!”

Soon after posting the pictures, the star reached the top of the trends list.

While many felt that he should have not posted the images, he hit back saying that he could do what he wanted to.

“Some people tend to forget we mourn differently and life isn’t a group assignment. If I choose to mourn on social media respect my wishes... isocial media yam le!”
