Media personality and actress Pearl Thusi came under fire for appearing to be insensitive to the passing of Khanyi Mbau’s father.

In response to the post by Khanyi announcing the funeral details for her and Lasizwe’s father, Menzi Mcunu, Pearl casually commented, ‘Hectic’.

Her comment caused a frenzy on social media with many accusing her of being heartless and cold. Some urged Pearl to delete the post of which she has not yet done that.

Queen Sono star defended herself saying this was all hectic because she had also lost her father this year and not so long ago she spoke about Menzi Mcunu with Khanyi Mbau.

Fans felt Pearl should have responded in a more sympathetic manner. Others accused the actress of trying to steal the spotlight.
