Social media sensation and Touch HD radio host - Lasizwe found himself in the middle of a twar after an American vine star, Jay Versace, a.k.a internet's funniest teenager confronted him about allegedly stealing his material.
Jay Versace sent out a series of tweets accusing Lasizwe of content theft and making it his own.
boy you copy everything I do https://t.co/jaxXHgQ8oN— JAY (@JAYVERSACE) June 21, 2018
Lasizwe, of course, didn't let things slide off easily and responded to Jay Versace with a passive-aggressive response.
I don’t..., but it’s flattering to know that you follow everything that I do ✨💪❤️ https://t.co/Px8O53M4UM— Lasizwe (@lasizwe) June 21, 2018
By that time the Twitter streets were watching the twar like....
Jay Versace responded by mentioning that he knew nothing about Lasizwe but had caught wind of him and was made aware of the type of content Lasizwe was putting up online.
lmao I don’t know anything about you. ppl keep sending me your corresponding flop ass videos. you’re making money off other people’s shit and that’s fucked up. dig in that big funky ass head of yours and find some of your own shit to post. i’m no longer entertaining this goodbye https://t.co/WV0q8uwmag— JAY (@JAYVERSACE) June 21, 2018
Lasizwe then went all Zulu on Jay and in classic Lasizwe style, he simply brushed things over and even had the time to respond to Jay in vernacular.

Then there was that overseas comment that got some people all excited. South Africans, you guys are hilarious.
I think he thinks cause he’s overseas that we don’t have the same internet bitch lmao I clearly see it— JAY (@JAYVERSACE) June 21, 2018
You would think that fellow citizens were going to back Lasizwe up, but unfortunately, things didn't go down like that.
But at least there were a number of people who were on Lasizwe's side.
Its really sorry for me i saw this late...But South Africa stills needs to recall Humanity! Black kid you're from SA not US! Supporting Morons from US instead of defending for Lasizwe won't make you famous. #Lasizwe— M a s i b u l e l e* (@Masibulele_facu) June 21, 2018
This shit of you ALL supporting an American who gives no shit of you. What @lasizwe is doing is called Business. Re vamping an idea and bringing to SA and entertain y'all. How is that copying if your your favourite rappers have ability to steal each other's beat?!#Lasizwe ❤❤— Anam Mbombo (@anamkhaya_m) June 22, 2018
