Social media had already lost it's cool

Current Miss SA Demi-Leigh Nel- Pieters came under fire on social media yesterday when a picture of her  for wearing gloves while feeding children in support of The Maslow Hotel’s soup drive in Ikageng, Soweto did circles on Twitter. Black Twitter went in accusing Demi Leigh Nel of so many things, but as it turned out it was all just a misunderstanding.

Demi Leigh took to Twitter in a video to explain that she and other volunteers had been wearing gloves because they had been working with food and the gloves were for hygienic purposes, not anything sinister.

Here are some of the ways social media reacted before Demi Leigh's video explaining herself.  

One Twitter user stated that "we don't believe you sis" referring to the video Demi-Leigh posted and Ms SA blocked her...

On the flip side, some users understood and concluded that the whole situation was being blown out of proportion.
