Zozibini Told To Keep Her Crown Amid Contestant’s Controversial Tweets. Following a contestant’s past being revealed on social media, Zozibini Tunzi has been receiving some love from fans who wish for her to keep her crown.
Even though the title of Miss SA had to be given to another beauty Queen Sasha Lee following Zozi’s win for Miss Universe, people seem to want Zozi to take back that crown back and keep it. Miss SA hopeful Bianca Schoombee came under fire for her 2014 tweets which were racist, vulgar and body shames people of all shapes and sizes. Social media is calling for her to be taken off the competition.
Miss SA released a statement condemning the recent events on Twitter which reads in part “Once we have a selection of potential semi-finalists we run the necessary background checks.
“There is good governance in place to ensure that Miss South Africa finalists and semi-finalists align with our values. Our rules state that any semi-finalist or finalist may not have been involved in any unsavoury or unethical incidents or conduct that may bring the organisers or the Miss South Africa pageant into disrepute.
“Unsavoury or unethical conduct includes, but is not limited to, bribery, racism, sexism, slander or libel.” She has since apologized, however she is not off the hook.
Zozibini also had people dig up her past and found nothing but good and positive tweets that spoke life into her current future.
