The social media streets can be very brutal sometimes Yoh!. Just when we are trying to re-group and take a deep breath after #SomhaleWhiteWedding yesterday which caused some havoc. Twitter is lit again today.
This follows after Radio star and entrepreneur Tbo Touch jetted off to the Los Angeles in the United States and during his stay decided to pay tribute to Legendary NBA player Kobe Bryant at his memorial which was held at the Staples Center.
The five-time NBA champion died in a helicopter crash that claimed nine people on board, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.
Tbo Touch posted a picture of him paying his respect to the legend and in the heart-wrenching moment he kneeled down to put his flowers in the memorial displayed filled with candles and flowers.

Maybe I’m missing something, but what’s so funny about Tbo Touch’s post? 😕

But this left many in stitches. Tweeps have been roasting the star for flying off to the states to pay his respect to Kobe Bryant.
Some even said he should have been stopped because he said he represents South Africa.
Someone must stop Tbo Touch from saying he's representing Africa. pic.twitter.com/DH9Tv5YCdZ

But some have defended him and said he loved and respected the legends and besides he flew with his own money.
So much hate and negativity on these Twitter streets… Ya'll need therapy serious. Leave Tbo Touch to live his life and focus on your own yessssis pic.twitter.com/7xcD9ATxzs
