Reigning Miss Universe, Zozibini Tunzi, has joined the global protest against racism, fuelled by the unjustified murder of George Floyd. The public figure took to Instagram on Sunday, 31 May 2020 to share her thoughts on the ongoing issue of racism, and even quoted Rihanna in her post. Coupled with images which supported the #BlackLivesMatter movement, Zozi spoke her mind on those who remain silent on the fight for equality. 

She stated, “This time you don't get to sit this one out. You don't get to turn a blind eye. As a human being, it should also be your obligation to fight against racism and for another human's life. As uncomfortable as it may be, we need to root this thing from the bottom up. Your silence is painful.” 

Unlike her predecessors who have kept quiet about major social and political issues, Zozibini has used her Miss Universe title to speak about relevant topics that are close to her heart. Last week she commented on the racist tweets from Miss South Africa hopeful, Bianca Schoombee, and this week she used her voice for an even greater cause. You go, Queen!!
