Media personality Pearl Thusi has publicly admitted that she’s messy, problematic, and confusing.
The “Queen Sono” star is no stranger to getting Mzansi heated about her hot takes and posts.
It seems that Thusi is well aware of the criticism, whether it’s about colorism or arguing over giving an alleged abuser a platform.
Taking to Twitter recently, Thusi said: “I’m definitely messy, problematic, confusing, etc … but I’m human.
“I work on myself constantly, consistently, and persistently. I love that about me.”
In the most recent incident, the former “Quantico” star was called out for her views on colorism.
Last year, Thusi and former “Afternoon Express” host Bonnie Mbuli got into a heated twar over how opportunities for black actresses differ depending on whether you are dark or light-skinned.
The “Behind The Story” host took a defensive stance after Mbuli posted: “So when a light-skinned actress complains abt the one or two roles they didn’t get coz they weren’t dark enuf; I’m like but the part ur crying abt was being the slave who gets raped and beat up in the thing, ppl who look like u have never had to be in that position, to begin with.”
To which Thusi responded: “You have absolutely no clue which other parts I didn’t get but because it makes you feel better to believe my acting career is working out only because I’m light-skinned.
“And for someone who survived depression and wrote a book about it, you sure love spreading negativity.
Thusi got dragged again earlier this year by tweeps after she captioned a post “Brown Skin Girl … skin just like pearls”, in reference to Beyoncé’s song which the “Black Is King” star made clear is a celebration of dark-skinned women of color.
