Celebs can never win on Twitter. This past week  actress Thuli Phongolo posted that her housekeeper waited up until past midnight to help her into her dress. While to some this was just an appreciation post to the house keeper for going above and beyond her call of duty.

However some felt like Thuli was over working her and even went to the extent of saying she was a slave driver for making her help wait up until that time to help her.

She is not the only one Zenande Mfenyana was seen dragging house helpers saying they are exhausting. However, that tweet did not land well and soon after she caught some heat from tweeps who labelled her condescending and rude.

This is not the first time the actress and new mommy found herself on the wrong side of social media, and it looks like it won't be the last. People have already made up their minds about the type of person Zenande is.

On Wednesday night, former The Queen actress found herself at the top of the trends list when she tweeted about how her house helpers are exhausting and expressed her frustration with the usage of an exploding head emoji.

When followers called her out on her comments section saying she should respect her help by communicating her dissatisfaction personally, and not take it out on social media, the actress went on a blocking spree.

She got called all sorts of words and people have concluded that she is not a good person to be around with.

"I repeat Bazalwane: No qualification, job title and bank balance qualify you to look down on any other person or to disrespect others," Twitter user Christo Thurston wrote.

"I'm sorry to say this but zenande Mfenyana has issues and last time some people were defending her when she was rude to that other lady she's another pull women down type," 2021 Africa worte.

"Generation directors were showing us a sign when they made Zenande Mfenyana act as Noluntu, she is exactly what Noluntu was, we ignored the signs," commented Xolani Malinga.

"I never expected this from you. Just so you know My Mom is a helper and she's not exhausting! She's been working for her boss for almost 25 years and she treats her like a Queen. She built her a house and even pays for her UIF. Learn to appreciate your helpers!" Precious commented.

During her pregnancy, Zenande responded 'rudely' to a woman's unsolicited advise about accepting her pregnancy look. She caught smoke because of her fiery response to the woman who was 'reaching out.'

She divided twitter with some in her defense saying the woman's DM was uncalled for, whilst others labelled her rude. An image she shared whilst she was heavily pregnant saw her getting mocked after the whole saga.

"I never said I'm not embracing my pregnancy. Just cause you laugh about it I don't find any of it funny at all. Please keep your opinion to yourself next time," she responded.
