Pearl Thusi was left shaking her head after Tweeps accused her of being a bad parent. Her offence? Blue ticking her daughter…
You don’t need to be a genius to see how much Pearl loves her daughter, Thando. As busy as Mama Panther might be (between flying back and forth from the States, shooting a series for Netflix and hosting the Comedy Central Roast of AKA), she always makes time to speak to, and see her child.
However, when she told us the story of how she blue-ticked Thando on Whatsapp (in other words, reading the message but not replying) people accused her of neglecting her daughter.
This all began as a rant about blueticking in general, although Pearl simply used uThando as an example:
It seems as if people missed the overarching point and decided to focus solely on the fact that she (sometimes) blue-ticks her kid. Really, guys?
