Another Miss SA Hopeful Oneida Comes Under-fire Over A Racist Tweet, here is what she tweeted
South African social media users have called for nearly everything to fall since the beginning of the lockdown…
Among the things they would like to see fall are things, organisations and people such as AKA, DStv, eNCA, Bianca Schoombee, Simphiwe Dana, the coronavirus, Eskom, fees and data.
Another Miss South Africa hopeful, Oneida Cooper, was added to that list after fellow pageant entrant Bianca felt the wrath of social media after old, racist tweets of hers were unearthed.
Oneida is a former national competitive swimmer and psychologist. She is also the long-time girlfriend of popular DJ Lesego “DJ Speedsta” Nkaiseng.
Many believe that Oneida’s Miss SA entry should also not be considered because she is fond of using the racial-slur-turned-colloquialism “niggah”.

Many mistakenly believe that Oneida is a white woman while others hold the belief that even though she is a coloured woman, she is not allowed to use the term.
