Soon after the compliments dwindled down, many began noticing that the mo’ghel’s skin appeared lighter than normal, and accused her of bleaching her skin. One fan in particular stated, “Stop the skin bleaching. You looking extra pink...”. The media extraordinaire didn’t have time for the accusations, and quickly clapped back with a sarcastic comment. She responded with, “lol! Shame... ya’ll want me to bleach my skin so bad! Lol!”.
An Instagram war then broke out against the troll, with Bonang’s fans defending her in the comment section. Many accused the hater of starting unnecessary drama with the reality star, and advised them to back down before Bonang returned with a comeback to end all comebacks. The troll stood firm in their comment, and went on to emphasise the fact that Bonang was clearly trying to hide her melanin.
Fans defended Bonang’s look by claiming that because she was wearing a blonde wig, it gave her a fairer look, whilst others agreed that her wig along with the natural lighting was the cause of lighter-look.
Mzansi has been known to call out celebrities for skin bleaching, with media personality, Khanyi Mbau taking the brunt of most of the hate. In July 2020, the actress claimed that the reason why she had begun bleaching her skin was because it made her look better on camera. Tweeps are yet to ease up on the concept of skin bleaching, and have been quick to condemn those who are appearing to look lighter.
