Among the many messages of condolences, Thusi commented on the post saying “Hectic”.

Twitter users were left fuming and have called out Thusi for her “inappropriate” message to Mbau.

Mbau and her brother Lasizwe lost their father Menzi Mcunu on Sunday, September 20. The cause of death is still unknown.

Fans can’t believe that Thusi posted such a comment and asked that that she delete it.

@MphoMoalamedi tweeted: “There is genuinely something wrong ka Pearl Thusi shame. Her need for attention even in the worst possible times is worrying. How the hell do you comment “Hectic” on someone’s post where they are giving the details of their dead parent’s memorial service? What the hell is this?

@Hlengi97633042 said: “Pearl Thusi commented "Hectic" on Khanyi's post because losing a parent is painful and obviously "hectic" in such a way that no one deserves to go through such pain.

“Why are people putting so much weight on something as simple as this? Bitterness much, huh?”.

@WandileNgubane_ playfully said: “Stop with All the negative Pearl Thusi comments I can't like them all”.

Other Twitter users defended Thusi saying that the word she used isn’t that bad and was taken out of context.
