The derogatory word “po*s” — which is an Afrikaans slang term for vagina — shot up to the number one spot on the twitter trends list.

This came after a “rehearsal” clip of SuperSport’s betting show, SuperPicks, saw Twiggy insulting the former Manchester United footballer who is currently in Qatar for the 2022 Fifa World Cup.

“Messi, because Ronaldo is a p**s,” she is heard saying. When her colleague asks “can you even say that?,” Twiggy responds “I just did.”

Take a look…

Following the clip, SuperSport released a short statement on Twitter. The sports broadcasting channel claimed that the clip is from a rehearsal and was not meant for broadcast.
