Following Sbahle Mpisane’s tragic car accident that landed her in the intensive care unit last month, the socialite and fitness enthusiast had ZAlebs and fans praying for her recovery as her father Sbu Mpisane kept giving updates on her healing journey.
Her first-ever appearance after her near-death experience has caused an uproar on social media.
Sbahle Mpisane’s brother Andile Mpisane took to his Instagram page earlier today and shared a video of him standing next to his sister in the hospital, he mentioned that he had brought a glam squad to pamper her in celebration of their parents’ anniversary.
While some ZAlebs took to their social pages penning heartfelt messages to the fitness instructer....
...twitter users had a mouthful to say about her reasons for making an appearance.
I’m not a prefect yezimpilo zabantu but a whole video for us peasants? Sbahle’s family could have waited!— Thabile (@LionessRage) September 11, 2018
This was so unnecessary 💔 I’m glad she’s recovering but she doesn’t owe us anything!
Just watched Sbahle’s update and I see nothing wrong with it. Ne le batla a emele mang? Lona to be comfortable with what might be her biggest stride since the accident? La lapisa.— Seilatsatsi☀️ (@shezzlovely) September 11, 2018
No one put a gun to Sbahle's head. She is literally doing for the fans who were concerned. I don't understand why you guys are uncomfortable with how she looks like it's you sitting on that bed! Mxm https://t.co/rTL5zI9b0j— Emotiońally Unavailable. (@Onwaba_Mafuya) September 11, 2018
After many trolls made jokes about her looks, many fans rallied behind her by clapping back at tweeps that criticised her appearance.

Most of us have been trying to reach out and find out how Sbahle is , today she puts on a brave face and shows you she's getting better and some have the nerve to say she should've focused on healing first? Sifunani? Singenaphi? !!— Xoli😍 (@PetersXoli) September 11, 2018
