South African poet and activist Ntsiki Mazwai is all about ruffling feathers and her favourite platform to do it on is X (formerly Twitter). This time, instead of using her controversial opinion to shock people, she used a photo of herself bare-chested on the beach.

Naturally, the snap sent shockwaves on the app and resulted in a number of people heading to the comment section to ask Mazwai what was going on.

Others however commended her for being as liberal as she is.

Chaos ensues

As expected, the post went viral as many people headed to the comment section to share their thoughts.

While a bulk of the replies were inappropriate comments by men, a number of people commented on her liberal attitude and how it reinforces the need for women to stop being sexualised by society.

Others however slammed the post in an attempt to seek attention.

“Not a long time ago, senior citizens / pensioners like yourself used to dress properly and were good role models for the youngsters!” one person said while another wrote:

“They criticize it because you didn’t put on makeup to fake yourself, they don’t appreciate genuine.”

“At your age, you are still getting naked on social media for validation?” a third added.
