Thuli Phongolo, a well-known actress and DJ, has made it abundantly clear that she will not tolerate any form of disrespect, particularly when it comes to her personal life choices. Recently, she went live on Instagram to interact with her fans. However, during the session, she was provoked by social media users who made snarky comments. In response, Thuli spoke about how she conducts herself as a brand and how she chooses to treat others with respect.
She stated that people can be incredibly disrespectful and forget that others can also be disrespectful in return. Thuli emphasized that just because someone chooses not to be disrespectful does not mean they do not know how to be. Instead, it means that they know how to treat people well and think before they speak. They treat others with consideration and respect.
Thuli went on to say that being disrespectful towards her does not reflect poorly on her but rather on the person being disrespectful. It makes her think about how negatively that person must view themselves if they find it so easy to disrespect others. Thuli stated that she does not go around being disrespectful to people and that her first intention in everything she does is to portray herself with grace.
Recently, Thuli has been in the news after an assault case involving her and her boyfriend Maphorisa came to light. However, since releasing a joint statement with the DJ stating that they want to deal with the matter privately, she has avoided addressing the case publicly.
When a social media user asked her about her current state of mind and whether she was at peace, Thuli responded by saying that she is definitely at peace.
