MetroFm is in hot water once again for upsetting its fans and followers.

Just when we thought things were getting back in order at the MetroFm station, another problem creeps up.

This morning fans were appalled by the opinion poll that featured on #theWkndr about South Africa's newly crowned Miss SA 2019, Zozibini Tunzi. 

This comes after the whole nation celebrating the history-making moment of a Miss South Africa with short natural hair and #melaninOnFleek.  

We truly have reached a milestone now that we have a Miss SA whose looks represent many South African girls who previously have been misrepresented in beauty pageants  

Zalebs like Bonnie Mbuli celebrated this moment, saying: " What a time to be Miss SA is a girl who looks just like me.."

The poll ran by MetroFm, therefore, served as a huge slap in the face as far as this milestone is concerned.

Although MetroFm deleted the tweet, the damage had already been done!

Twitter users did not hold back their outrage:

MetroFm has since released an official statement addressing the incident:

Eish, this was just an unfortunate situation. What are your thoughts fam?
