South African actress Pearl Thusi has landed herself in hot soup with tweeps after she said her skin was brown.
When American songbird Beyonce said, ‘Brown skin girls’,she literaly meant all shades of brown and that was meant to unite black women. The term included all women who are black.
Pearl Thusi posted a picture of herself on Twitter and captioned, “Brown skin girl…skin just like pearls…”.
Tweeps started attacking the actress, telling her how less of a brown woman she is. Some added pictures of women who appeared to be of a darker shade of brown to prove that she was not brown.
