Rachel Kolisi's cup emoji sets Twitter in overdrive
Springbok Captian Siya Kolisi's wife, Rachel, once again became a hot topic on the Twitterverse following the discovery of her cup emoji comment on a picture of her husband with a model.
Rachel is no stranger to drama on Twitter streets. She previously slammed a user thirsting for her husband after calling him a 'type'. Rachel responded with: "He’s not 'a type'. He’s a married man responsible for 4 children...Just a side note. I’ve been there for all the good times. But I’ve also been there for ALL the bad times. Honestly, this should go without saying. Respect my relationship and woman to woman. Respect me".
This time around it was a cup emoji that set tongues wagging with tweeps both defending and criticising her reaction.

The photo and Instagram Stories in question were posted by influencer Zuki Lamani, who posted a picture of her and Siya laughing at a photoshoot.

She also shared some snaps on her Instagram Stories with captions referring to Siya as "ubaby" and "The Kolisi Glow".
I mean you can't be like this over someone's man and you claim she's crazy when she reacts. I don't blame her mna. pic.twitter.com/FW95j7i3LY— KENDOUR (@kendour_sa) September 18, 2018
The images were posted last month, but only started trending on Tuesday after the Twitter CIA caught wind of it. Tweeps then weighed in, with many having mixed feelings about Rachel's emoji comment. Some claimed that the cup emoji was low-key shade at how Zuki was "thirsting" over Siya.
Here are some of the Rachel's defenders comments:
My girl Rachel Kolisi is walking so that all the upcoming prominent ballers wives don't get to go through such disrespect and run!— International_Hippie (@Gorthan_Sir) September 19, 2018

My Sisters, Please respect Yourselves and if you can't then atleast respect People's relationships and Marriages. You can't be calling a whole Married man 'u Baby' knowing he is married. What's your intention vele, Just Attention? #RachelKolisi— Yongama Ngqambuza (@Yongz_) September 19, 2018
I'll "overreact" when some nobody thinks it's ok to step in my space or assume they can... Let the tables flip on you people saying Rachel kolisi is overreacting bring your others to be preyed on and keep your damn mouths shut since you are "mature"— Karen Van Wyk (@KarenVanWyk7) September 19, 2018
Here are those that feel that Rachel is in the wrong:
Rachel Kolisi is VERY insecure pha kulamtshato. You can tell by the stunts she keeps pulling. Whoa, uzenza weak. 😭— Nazzi (@Maknazzi) September 18, 2018
rachel kolisi is moving like someone who gets cheated on regularly.— nosipho (@deityshawty) September 18, 2018
I don’t understand Rachel Kolisi. She has the ring, the house, the kids, all of but she’s acting insecure over a fan photo? No man— cat lady (@NalediMashishi) September 18, 2018
Siya Kolisi is a national team captain, not some corner guy chasing invoices. Women are going to say all manner of things about him when they see him. Rachel needs to either trust her man or stop playing security guard. There’s many more of these coming https://t.co/i8EBiks8cy— Tshepo (@tshepo87) September 18, 2018
wow i am finished at this Rachel Kolisi story. Homegirl needs to realize she is not married to Mindlos from the corner shop...a whole captain of the SA rugby team, that comes with stalkers and admirers and many other things. aowa 🙄— Stephy (@Stephy_Leong) September 19, 2018

It is unclear if Rachel is aware of the latest blowout since she deleted her Twitter account after the "type" backlash earlier this year.
