Sarah Langa has again found herself on the Twitter trends list, after she said SA model Ayanda Thabethe is prettier than Beyoncé.
The fashionista made the comparison on Thursday, sparking a Twitter storm.
Ayanda had earlier posted a snap of herself dressed as Bey for Halloween
Some followers feared the worst when they saw Sarah's comments land her on the trends list, worrying American Twitter would soon be after us.
Others said Sarah was trying to set Ayanda up for a drag.
Sarah said she wasn't about to argue with her haters, saying she was “just appreciating one of our own”.
That is so true ❤️ thank you for that. Was just appreciating one of our own. But you’re right. 🥰 https://t.co/9dJbG4YXML

This is not the first time Sarah's so-called attempts to pay tribute to SA women have fallen flat.
She apologised to fans in September for a social media post which showed her shedding animated tears at reports of femicide in the country.
Sarah was dragged on social media for the video, in which she sported designer gear, while crying tears that had been edited in.
The caption simply read: “Help #EnoughIsEnough”.
