Twitter set alight after Bonang drags ‘trash’ SAA
TV personality Bonang Matheba found her name on the trends list on Wednesday after the star publicly criticised South African Airways, labelling the carrier "trash".
The trouble started when Bonang took to Twitter to share her disappointment with the food being served on the airline.
The airline cheekily responded to B's complaint saying that no one else had complained about the food.
Bonang was not amused and hit back at the airline, calling it trash.
Her comments went viral and split Twitter as users rushed to defend Bonang, while some defended SAA.
They made their feelings known through hilarious jokes and memes.
Mara Bonang is also a customer so she must not complain when she's not satisfied with the service she's getting? Haibo pic.twitter.com/8qwM5yczDv— Nomfundo Roberto (@iiam_Ndo) April 19, 2017

Meanwhile, fellow TV personality Lerato Kganyago defended the airline saying that it was trying its best.
