Bonnie Mbuli slams Pearl Thusi’s ‘black-face’ snap that split Twitter

Bonnie Mbuli has strong opinions over Pearl Thusi’s “black face” photoshoot which caused a raging debate on Twitter.

In the wake of the debate Bonnie did not mince her words when she labelled the shoot “distasteful”.

Pearl shared a string of pictures from a photoshoot in which she was painted a darker complexion.

Bonnie was just not having it and made her thoughts clearly known:
