Unathi Msengana has released a statement apologising for how she reacted to a social media storm.

It has been a pretty rough few days for Unathi Msengana who came under fire for a direct response to a twitter follower after the hashtag, #UnathiBeLike trended on Monday.

Following her immediate suspension from Metro FM, the Idols SA judge has released a statement apologising for how she reacted to the situation.

Is it too little too late?

We'll just have to wait and see.

Read Unathi's statement below:

Two days ago, on radio, I expressed an opinion on the language policy at Stellenbosch University. Thereafter my opinion became the subject of a Twitter debate. Unfortunately some of the subsequent commentary criticised me in ways that I felt badly violated my personal life and my personal beliefs. To be cast as an advocate for rape, gender inequality and homophobia when I am passionate about ending these social ills, was extremely shocking. As a result, in what I have come to realise was a bad attempt to defend myself, I reacted by engaging directly with a Twitter follower. However, as upset as I was at that time, I should not have used offensive language. I therefore wish to publicly apologise for my choice in language. Going forward, whilst l refuse to be bullied on Twitter about my opinions, I will exercise better judgment when using this platform. I thank those who have supported me.
