Boity Thulo causes a storm for tweeting her 'lockdown shopping' trip
Rapper Boity Thulo's army had to come to her defence after she got dragged for going grocery shopping this past weekend during the national lockdown implemented to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Boity decided to share a bit about her shopping experience on Twitter to help show people how different shopping is under the lockdown.
Instead of the Twitter engagement she hoped for, Boity was dragged by some tweeps, asking her why she was out and about when she should be at home.
She had to set the record straight real quick.
"I’m not out and about shopping. I’m buying food at a grocery store. I'm posting because I can. Clown," she clapped back to one tweep.
Boity's fans came to her rescue and told off haters who suggested the rapper went out to "gallivant".
They defended her, saying because the country is under lockdown doesn't mean Boity should starve and be scared to go to buy groceries because she will be judged.
Lockdown was announced before anyone knew it's coming. People went crazy &shops were filled to capacity. So between the announcement and now, today is the first day that most people who understand that Corona spreads in large crowds will go shopping. She can post what she likes.— Limie🕆 (@Limise_More) March 27, 2020
Ai nawe stop posting sisi, if you did post, that is. Angithi you know very well that you're a role model. You unfortunately send wrong signals, even if it's not your intention to do so! But do shop, it's within our rights to do so during this #21daysLockdownSA ! 😁😁— responsible afrikan (@mbotsellasie) March 27, 2020
You must have missed the memo. People are allowed to go out to get essential items like food and medicine. Which is exactly what she was doing.— Limie🕆 (@Limise_More) March 27, 2020
