South African actress and media personality Pearl Thusi has come under scrutiny after a video of her participating in the ‘Water Dance Challenge’ went viral
Social media users criticized her for taking part in the dance challenge, saying she is too old to be shaking her “nyash” in bikinis.
Pearl Thusi Takes on the Water Dance Challenge
In the video, which was shared on X (formerly Twitter), Pearl can be seen performing the Water Dance Challenge while wearing a brown bikini at the beach.
This isn’t the first time she has shared a video of herself participating in this trending challenge. Back in September, Pearl shared a series of dance videos on Instagram, seeking input from her followers to select the best one for her water challenge dance reel.
Social media users rained on her parade and dragged her social media as they criticized her partaking in the dance challenge.
Responding to critics at that time, Pearl Thusi unapologetically stated that people should stop policing her body.
“I wonder when people are going to realize that for as long as you guys try and police me or my body and me being a mother, for as long as that is happening, I will do what I am doing,” she confidently stated.
Social Media Reacts
This time around, netizens didn’t hold back as they continued to criticize her.
Critics argued that she is too old to be twerking and thirst trapping on social media. On the other hand, some social media users suggested that she might be going through a midlife crisis.
