Neo-soul music lovers were treated to a three-hour long Instagram Live video song battle by award-winning musicians Jill Scott and Erykah Badu on Saturday night. And while many people enjoyed the back-to-back hits the two were performing, others were fuming over Pearl Thusi’s “rude” comment during the live video.

In her comment, Pearl Thusi who recently returned to social media after a month’s hiatus, said that she wished she could powder Jill Scott.

“I wish I could powder Jill Scott,” she wrote.

Fans weren’t impressed by this comment as many found it unpleasant and rude.

However, others were quick to defend the Queen Sono star by saying that she could be joking as she is friends with the singer.

It is not the first time that Pearl has landed in hot water over her comments on social media, last year the actress found herself being dragged after saying that colourism had affected her career as she’d be told that she wasn’t “dark enough” to play certain roles.

The actress is yet to comment on what she meant by saying she wished to powder Jill Scott.
