Kelly Khumalo has revealed that she has blocked 1,000 people on Twitter because of the continuous cyberbullying she’s been subjected to.
Kelly is one of the most cyber-bullied celebrities in Mzansi, so when she revealed the number of people she has blocked on the Twitter streets, she got a round of applause from her core supporters.
The songstress’ controversial love life has landed her in the spotlight and seen her hogging headlines multiple times.
For years Kelly Khumalo has been on the receiving end of unwarranted hate, which includes being body shamed and being called cursed for the deaths that have occurred around her.
Every time Kelly is spotted with a new guy – professionally or romantically – trolls attack her and warn the guy to steer clear because she’s “cursed”.
Recently, her sister Zandie Khumalo’s “divorce” from her has seen her receive a lot of backlash.
This is due to the accusations and allegations her sister threw her way in a lengthy, scathing letter.
However, Kelly is doing all she can to protect her sanity and that means on days when she doesn’t feel like clapping back, she just blocks anyone who disturbs her inner peace.
1,000 and still counting!
Speaking on the abuse she often has to endure online, Kelly reminded her critics last year that hate had a habit of returning to its sender.
“We project so much hate towards others and forget that the very same hate is enough to drive God to open a flood of blessings towards those we spend so much energy hating on,” she wrote.
She added that the more you hate on people, the more blessed they are.
The songstress went on to preach that too often people forget that everyone is equal before God and they should treat others the same.
In August 2018 Kelly was dragged on Twitter after a performance on Idols SA for her “unbleached armpits.”
A few days after the fiasco Kelly told male followers on the platform that body shaming was a form of abuse.
“To all the men who didn’t know attacking and body shaming women on twitter is a form of abuse, Happy Women’s Month,” she tweeted at the time.
