Actor, and ANN 7 Anchor, Palesa Madisakwana found herself in a bit of a social media tiff after commenting that Zola was irrelivant because he declined an interview with the news network.
This particular tweet caused an uproar with supporters of Zola, who found the tweet to be quite petty and found the "irrelivant" statement as untrue.
Palesa was reprimanded by a lot of people on Twitter
We are Zola 7, Zola 7 is us. You strike Zola, you strike us— Lizwi Njani (@NjaniLizwi) March 23, 2017
Including some of our actors as well.
There was no need to troll Zola.— Mme a Masakona (@FloMasebe) March 23, 2017
Florence Masebe even added a bit of humour in the entire ordeal after a Twitter user asked to be her P.R manager.
I can't afford such. I'll just make one up. I'm a good actor. https://t.co/rIpfCeYmC1— Mme a Masakona (@FloMasebe) March 23, 2017
However, Palesa went on to clarify that the tweet posted about Zola was not her personal one, but an account that is managed by her assistant who also manages her P.R
Palesa immediately apologized on Twitter and mentioned that she would reprimand her assistant for the tweet.
good evening all, please note this is the twitter account I personally post on the other account @PMocuminyane is run by my pr company— Palesa Madisakwane (@PalesaMoc) March 23, 2017
I'm very upset about my assistant's tweets @PMocuminyane she controls my tweets & PR, I'm dealing with her, as for Zola I apologies— Palesa Madisakwane (@PalesaMoc) March 23, 2017
But some people were not buying the P.R explanation.
A whole PR company tweeting nonsense in your name and that of your employer?! Yithi uyadlala. Khona why do you need two accounts? https://t.co/TNiUrn7FCC— thembekile (@ThembiMrototo) March 23, 2017
Basically. But don't you 'love it' when people 'read the room' wrong? 😂— Cassandra🤰🏽 (@MsCassandraGud) March 23, 2017
It's clear she thought people would love her dragging Zola but nah. https://t.co/lYXyPZpbDA
Whilst Twitter was up in arms, Palesa's assistant again made an unnecessary tweet about the situation.
Twitter was still not moved by the assistant's tweet.
No slander against Zola shall prosper...amen!
