Cape Town - TV personality K Naomi found herself on the wrong side of Twitter users after posting an insensitive tweet aimed at people living with bipolar disorder.

K Naomi – real name Keitumetse Naomi Noinyane – posted the tweet on her page on Wednesday morning.

"I hate bipolar people… You can’t always switch up, choose your vibes and be about them," the now-deleted tweet read.

As expected, this triggered a lot of her followers, who quickly pointed out how "insensitive" and misinformed her tweet was.
