South African-born US-based actress Thuso Mbedu always makes a point of interacting with her South African fans.

The 26-year-old often speaks about South Africa and even uses vernac in some of her tweets.

This is seemingly not enough for one Twitter user who decided to ask the young actress to tone down her American accent.

“I was watching your interview. Don’t lose the South African accent,” the user said.

After spotting the tweet, Thuso wasted no time hitting the man with a clapback basically asking him to mind his own business.

“Don’t talk about things you know nothing about,” she said clearly annoyed by the man’s opinion on her accent.

@tidnic commented:

“You want unnecessary attention. Stop it; you are too old for this. Thuso is doing well don’t drag her down to your level, and beat her with experience…”

Another person defended the man by saying that it was simply a suggestion on his behalf.
