Local entertainment commentator Phil Mphela decided to share his thoughts on Bonang Matheba's reaction to a recent report that she was summoned to appear in court last week for tax fraud.
The Sunday World newspaper reported at the weekend, that Matheba was allegedly due in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crime Court last Monday. Matheba's PR team slammed the report, claiming it contained "factual". Matheba is now reportedly seeking R10m damages compensation.
Commenting on his own tweet, Mphela wrote: "My thoughts: Moghel should have just let this go. It's tabloid and responding or suing only gives the story traction.
"Furthermore, I don't think it is wise for her to be waging a war with journos. Her influence is waning & she needs positive coverage to remain at the top (sic)."
Bonang then quote-tweeted his comment, and wrote: "Go f*** yourself! Honestly."
Go fuck yourself! Honestly. https://t.co/OOKcTtH1kn— Bonang B* Matheba (@bonang_m) August 28, 2018
And keeping true to its nature, Twitter then weighed in on Matheba's clap back.
She isn't fighting with him, he isn't worth it. This is her simply being tired of all the trash he tweets about her name every single day. This is her telling him enough is enough.— Purple Babochka 💜 (@PurplePoise1) August 28, 2018
Phil is an emotional mess, bipolar, psychopathic. He's classified as high risk in the industry because he can't keep his mouth shut. If he doesn't get his way, he blasts it on social media to get attention, which indicates his lack of professionalism and emotional intelligence.— Mr. Naidoo (@naidoorsa) August 28, 2018
