While the timeline was too busy dissing Ari Lennox after she called MacG supporters peasants, she was not really active on the topic. It was only when a popular Tweleb dissed Ari and said she is not beautiful, where Pearl saw it was a good idea to laugh at the joke.

Michael Bucwa, AKA Mr. SMEG - you know the one who always flaunts his red SMEG kettle, and asks women out on a date? Well he often calls women beautiful and shoots his shot, but when it came to Ari, he said she is not beautiful and that caused Pearl to laugh.

Even though she did say that her laughing does not mean she agrees with was being said, she still caught some heat from Tweeps and it was not good.

Many people argued that Pearl is a colourist because she laughed at a dark skinned woman being told she is not beautiful. Especially because it came from a light skinned man himself.

Here are some of the comments:

"Pearl Thusi (a committed colourist) who claimed colourism doesn't exist and neither does light skin privilege. Is laughing at a 'joke' made by a light skinned man who became famous because of a kettle, saying that a dark Skinned Ari is not beautiful."

"Light-skinned Pearl Thusi participating in the cyber-bullying of a dark-skinned woman is so on brand and pathetic. Starting the year off with peak pick-me energy. Honestly, fuck these misogynistic colourist influencers."

"In my next life I want to come back as Pearl Thusi’s singular brain cell. Always on leave, never required."

"Pearl Thusi is a horrible human being. Her constant urge to be different makes her a distasteful person."

"Me, I have had it with y'all! is Pearl Thusi the only South African woman who is light skin??? I mean really! This is really getting boring wtf!! Always Pearl Thusi this Pearl Thusi that...y'all who always go on about her skin, should just drink water and relax!"

Pearl Thusi is well aware that Black Twitter does not like her that much. A few years back she addressed the love-hate relationship they share and said this about them, “These people waste their time and energy dragging me and I wasn’t even there to feel the pain I was meant to feel. Bazobaright shame (they will be alright shame),” she said.

When she reponded to the current hate, she urged people to be more kind and to learn how to correct a person the right way.
