Zozibini Tunzi recently took to Twitter, saying that all women are beautiful regardless of their hairstyle choices.

After a Twitter user said, Zozibini is an example of a woman who "ditch" weaves for their natural hair. In reply to this, Zozibini noted that women must be cherished regardless of their hairstyles.

"It's not about that. It's about autonomy. The ability of women to express themselves; however, they choose to. It's about saying we are all beautiful in our natural hair and weaves for those who choose to. It's not a competition but a celebration of ALL women," she said.

This set the record straight for anyone that ever had their doubts on Miss Universe being for ALL women, mostly the Twitter user, who replied, "I respect everyone's choices and differences. I should also learn not to joke around those. I have nothing against the weave or any form of hair. I am sorry to everyone that my words didn't come out the way I wanted them to. They came out offensive instead." 

So then ladies, you are beautiful regardless of your hair choice - the Universe has spoken.
