Lamiez Holworthy ‘tired’ of internet trolls

By Tamlyn Canham

Lamiez Holworthy is learning the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished – especially on the internet.

The DJ’s attempt to help a Twitter user with a botched tattoo ended with an internet troll telling her how to spend her money.

The Twitter user shared pictures of the tattoo she wanted and what her tattoo artist designed.

“Please don’t laugh at me. What I wanted VS what I got,” the woman captioned the images.

Lamiez stepped up to help her.

“nka scream’a gore! Askies baby. Can I please pay for your cover-up ko my tattoo artist?” she replied.

Many Twitter users praised Lamiez for offering to do something to help.

“She said “Can I please” when she’s the one pledging.  If I was your husband I’d pay lobola for you every year. A lifetime subscription I tell you,” one tweep commented.

But not everyone appreciated her kind gesture. Some Twitter users told Lamiez that she is wasting her money.

“You’re wasting money on nonsense. Next thing you’ll be crying and begging for money for your orphanage. Be wise with your money,” one person tweeted.

Lamiez clapped back at the remarks.

“My husband and I are doing just fine in making sure that our adopted kids are taken care of thanks hence I’d never need to cry for help- especially not from you. Now mind your business,otswe mo nna toe. Thanks,” she replied.

Leave Lamiez Holworthy

Lamiez is no stranger to internet hate. Social media users made fun of her in August because she looked “bored” during a trip to the Maldives.

One Twitter user told Lamiez in July that she does not seem like “wife material” and is not the “best suitor” for her husband, Khuli Chana.

She was also attacked by cyberbullies on Tuesday. This time, they took offence to her wearing shorts.

Lamiez usually brushes off the hate, but she is tired of internet trolls “dragging” her for no reason.

“Wow ya masipa! Not to wear shorts because YOU said so?! Wang nyela wena. Always these fake accounts trying to project their own insecurities on others. Well Mo Nna ke stop station ge!

“I’m an African woman and will be damned by your f**ked up standards!” she tweeted.

Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela has come to her defence.

“Please don’t feel discouraged to engage your fans or just be human and post whatever you like here. I know it can get annoying & frustrating when trolls make you a constant target but they can not win or kick us out of here. Do you Queen,” he tweeted after the online drama over the tattoo.

Lamiez replied: “Phil, I am tired.”

Media personality Lerato Kganyago also chimed in. She shared her own experience in a response to Phil’s tweet.

“Been there. Done that. I’ve realised once you start doing well on these streets you become a target. That’s why when you do good, they are silent.. when it’s bad they make sure it trends. Mize them. It annoys me.”

Lamiez says she doesn’t understand why people online choose to bully while preaching about mental health.

“Daily, you ppl preach about mental health, suicide and being kinder only to be the total opposite minutes later!”

She adds that there is one simple solution for cyberbullies.

“…f**k off. That simple,” she tweeted.
