Someone recently told DJ Zinhle he hopes she has a miscarriage

DJ, entrepreneur and expecting mother Zinhle Jiyane 'DJ Zinhle' opened up about the hate some people have thrown her way.

Zinhle took to Instagram to express her confusion with all the hate and also gave out some advice.

Posting the picture below in a bikini she started the conversation as follows;

"My first #TBT.... This was in Jan, I was 3 months pregnant. I remember posting this pic & 1 lady commented that I needed to hit the gym immediately before wearing a bikini ever again she told me that I shouldn't be wearing a bikini with a tummy like that. I didn't care, I still don't...," she said

Zinhle went on to address how people say hurtful words on social media "I am just shocked at how powerful people feel on social media, their words are weapons meant to hurt & discourage people they don't even know... A kind gentleman recently told me on Twitter that he hopes I have a miscarriage, this also didn't affect me much as these were not my words but his & they will manifest in his life not mine, but as someone who was raised to respect & care for people his comments felt cruel & inhumane."

According to Zinhle this hate is as a result of people being sad. "Why are people so sad, why do people need to steal other people's joy in order to make themselves happy or relevant? I have a strong mind & great support, my joy is in my hands, therefore this war of words will not make my life miserable."

Instead of attacking the haters, the expecting mother gave out some good advice. "My advice is, be in control of your joy, that way, no one can take it away from you... If these people knew how happy and amazing my life is, they wouldn't bother trying to steal my joy cause there's too much of it, they would need a couple of lifetimes to steal all of my joy."

We are proud that the expecting mother hasn't let the hate get her down.
