Miss Universe 2019 Boldly Reacted Against A Racial Tweet

Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi publicly reacted to a racist post made by an East London business owner on social media. 

Zozibini Tunzi’s tweet drew a response out of the company and confirmed they will be taking necessary action against him as soon as possible.

The diva recently responded to a screenshot of a post from East London businessman Russel Kruger. Kruger’s post featured a picture of a child whose face was painted black and was captioned: “Using my kids to apply for business grants hope we come right.”

Tunzi quietly accepts the racists' post and ensure that Kruger’s racism was exposed. She drew a response out of eatery chain Mugg & Bean, who confirmed that Kruger was a part-shareholder in one of their stores. The chain moved to assure South Africa as a whole that they believe Kruger’s behaviour was unacceptable and action will be taken against him.

If at all there was any doubt about the reach a Miss Universe winner has, it has all been subsided now with Zozibini’s swift action. The Human Rights Commission of South Africa (HRCSA) has been asked to take up the case.

Kruger is believed to have deleted all his social media accounts after issuing an apology stating, “There was a picture posted on Facebook or Twitter of my child posted going viral and insinuating racist comments. I apologize for this profusely, there was no intention of any racism whatsoever the child was playing and this [is] not intended as any racist comment whatsoever. Kindly accept this humble apology.”
