The River actress has never shied away from slamming her critics and putting them in their place. This time they came at her sideways for choosing to not cook for her husband.

Many people have this perception that a woman, whether married or not, should cook, clean and maintain their homes. As a woman who is married, these duties are according to society vital and have to be carried out. For the actress who is very busy, she leaves it to the helpers to help her keep her home in place.

Linda hit back at her critics and told them that she does not need to cook everyday in order to prove her worth to her husband. She also added that her husband loves to see her living the soft life and getting pampered instead of breaking a sweat.

"The oddest thing is women trying to shame me cause I don’t cook," she laughed. "We all have different lifestyle choices I prefer to cook when I feel like it. It’s not a chore I need to do everyday. I don’t have to prove my worth through domestication. Even if I hated it & didn’t want to do it’s my choice to make."

"Woman must stop this notion of domestication as a badge of honor especially in marriage. Let other woman be. Our love Languages are not the same. Our marriages are not the same, some of our husbands like to see us relaxing & pampered being soft."
The actress has also been questioned for her parenting skills. This after she got dragged for breastfeeding her 15 month old baby. She says she will stop breastfeeding until she decides to. Linda went on Instagram to issue a scathing warning to people who judge her parenting skills.

“Whenever I post a pic or video of me breastfeeding Bean I’m sent so many “oh my word she’s still breastfeeding,” “akesemdala for ukuncela.” (she's too old to breastfeed) Listen here and listen good, firstly yes and proudly so. WHO (World Health Organisation) recommends that you breastfeed until 2 (years old.) 

“There are far too many benefits of breastfeeding to even count, (Google is your friend). It’s my personal choice to breastfeed and to continue doing so well after 6 months or even a year. Bean is 15 months now (1 year 3 months.) I’ll stop when I’m ready to and when I feel Bean is ready too. 

“For all the other breastfeeding mama’s do you. Do what’s best for you and your baby don’t get discouraged, forget the naysayers and those who feel they have a right to an opinion about your life, body and parenting. Stop parent shaming, to each he’s own,” Linda clapped back.
