Sies! Unathi Msengana hits back at Doom meme trolling her

While some thought it was funny, her fans came to her defence, slamming the meme for being 'insensitive'.

As many were shocked by the news of the self-proclaimed prophet from Limpopo who has used Doom to “heal” his congregants, some used the news as an opportunity to troll celebrities using memes. Unathi Msengana is one of the celebrities who often gets targeted by such memes based on a past photo of hers.

It started when the Aromat memes were still trending, with one saying she looked better after being seasoned with it.

Now a Doom meme has been created, implying that she was made beautiful because of it. The pesticide had gained pop culture currency with memes saying that if it could “heal” those congregants, then it can solve any problem one might have.

Sharing a past picture of the Idols SA judge, one Twitter user tweeted the meme and tagged a Zanu_pf account, saying it needed Doom.

“If we use Doom on white trolls they may mutate,” the account tweeted back.

Msengana saw the tweets and hit back, saying she looked like that because she had been sick at the time.

“Stop with your lies. I was sick here. IM BORED. Sies,” she tweeted.

Msengana further said that she blocked the trolls.

She is, unfortunately, not the only celebrity who has fallen victim to the memes. Bongekile ‘Babes Wodumo’ Simelane’s name has now been changed to “Babes WoDoomo” in memes doing the rounds on social media. A past picture of hers has been photoshopped, with her hand now appearing as if she has been holding Doom all along.

While some saw the Doom memes as an opportunity to make fun of celebs, singer Dr Malinga used the trend to his advantage and created a “song” out of it.

He took to Instagram to share his new creation.
