There is definitely never a dull day on social media. Actress Zenande Mfenyana saw herself trending again, not for the negative comments about her pregnancy look, however, she caught smoke because of her fiery response to a woman ‘reaching out.’
She divided twitter with some in her defense saying the woman’s DM was uncalled for, whilst others labeled her rude.
The excited soon-to-be mommy shared a picture of herself with no make-up and some pregnancy essentials as a partnership with Tommee Tippee.

Hospital bag packed ✅ and being the overly pedantic person I am, I made sure I pack my @tommeetippeeza breast pads. I know for the first few days it’ll just be colostrum coming out from my boobies. So let’s just call this part of my journey, the excitement to being able to feed my baby Ballerina 🤰🏽❣️👼🏽 #TommeeTippee #Ad
A woman slid into her DMs and gave her unsolicited advice on how to deal with people mocking her pregnancy look.
Angered by this woman, Zenande clapped back and told her that her message was not welcome.

Zenande was on a blocking spree as trolls came for her after the screenshot went viral. Others were in her defense saying the woman’s message was inappropriate and rude.
Zenande was right, imagine someone looking at you, finding fault in your looks, assuming you having issuess coping, then coming to comfort you for the way you look. Unprovoked!
A Tsek well deserved.

Zenande was pissed off by that “After the baby arrives, you’ll go back to normal again”.
How would you respond kindly to someone that thinks you’re abnormal? https://t.co/xbMjOAjPTw

Zenande response in my opinion was wrong I feel she could’ve handled it better and they are women who are actually supporting what she said but cry about women not supporting each other pic.twitter.com/8tV8Ym91yZ

I’m worried about the people who are justifying Zenande ‘s response. That lady did not deserve to be spoken to like that… her intentions were pure. She is or was a fan!
