Rachel Kolisi, the wife of Springbok captain Siya Kolisi, left social media in an uproar after outing a woman she claimed had slipped into her husbands DMs. Soon after publicly naming the woman, Rachel closed her account as backlash mounted against her.

In the video, Rachel says "my face is so red because I'm so angry, but I just want to finish off this situation saying that the days of women having to take sh*** and deal with sh*** are over."

Yesterday was not the first time she called out a woman for going after her man. Here are three other examples.

June 2018: 'He's not a type, he is married'

In June 2018, Rachel called out a Twitter user who was crushing on her husband, calling him a "whole type".  Rachel said her man was nobody's type and reminded the person that he was married with four children.

June 2018: 'Respect my marriage'

Lorna Maseko found herself being dragged after her friend was talking about wanting to date a black man and Siya's name came up.

"I watched a local TV show last week where a local 'celeb' was encouraging her friend to go on a date with Siya Kolisi," said Rachel.

In another post, she assured tweeps that she had seen it all and had been with her husband through good and bad, and asked that people respect her and her marriage. 

September 2018: 'The Kolisi glow'

An Instagram influencer also got on Rachel's wrong side when she took to Twitter and Instagram to post pictures of her and the Springbok's star and captioned them 'The Kolisi glow'.

The model, who was heavily criticised by some, defended herself until the end, saying she was a fan and would not be bullied by tweeps nor Rachel.
