Local actress Pearl Thusi came under fire on Sunday after she started talking about blue ticking people on WhatsApp and revealed that she does it with her daughter too.

Taking to Twitter, the former "Quantico" star vented about "needy people" expecting a response for "reassurance". Adding that even her daughter expects less because she knows she's loved.

"Harassing people who blue tick u creates an impression of serious self-entitlement & insecurity. Not everyone takes ur texts as seriously as u do," Thusi wrote. "I blue tick my kid. She doesn’t harass me because she knows for a fact that I love her," she said in another post.

Ppl have the right to do what makes them happy & gives them peace. That includes not responding to a particular text u sent ❤️

I blue tick my kid. She doesn’t harass me because she knows for a fact that I love her. Sometimes I can’t respond or I don’t feel the need to.

Tweeps then chimed into the conversation and shared their opinions on blue ticking.

People don't blue tick ✅ people who matter to them in life especially the ones they love.

Not every thing that is urgent is important and not everything that is important is urgent. Just state your case when the person gets time they will respond or if it needs a response.

Communication is two-way.

Being blue ticked is a message too.

Silence is a message in itself😷🤫

However, it was comments regarding Thusi's parenting that had her in clap back mode saying that "virgins are giving me advice on how to raise my child" and "parents know not to give unsolicited advice to other parents."

You literally said you bluetick your daughter and that your bluetick option is off all in one thread. We are now confused, though Whoever they are who triggered you should really deliver their apology.
