Influencer Tshepo Vundla apologizes for what she did in the past
Tshepi Vundla, an influencer, has apologized for previous tweets in which she body-shamed people, as well as recent comments she made about “broke girls” who “SBWL” goods they don’t want to buy with their own money.
After a video clip from the latest On The Table episode hosted by Tshepi Mabs, Noluthando Nkwali, and DJ Black Velvet went viral, the mother of one landed on the Twitter trends list earlier this week. In the video, Tshepi slammed financially dependent women, and tweeps dragged her to degradation.
As she became more popular, Twitter CIA went back almost ten years through her Twitter history to find tweets in which Tshepi was rude to plus-size people.

Tshepi canceled her Twitter account and became silent after the outrage. That is, until she returned to the TL on Wednesday morning with a lengthy apology.
“I’d like to apologize for my previous social media posts. They were cruel and degrading, and there is no justification for their actions.
“There was no malice intended, and I blame it on my poor word choice, “she explained.
Tshepi promised to be a better person in the future.
Changed in the past 48hrs or? Because you were caught in 4K calling women prostitutes. The thing with upholding misogynistic ideals, is that men will not treat you with any less contempt just because you agree with them. You’ll still fall victim to the same violence and hate. https://t.co/w0YimbKail

“I’ve evolved as a woman, a spouse, and, most significantly, a mother over time. On this road, I’ve learned many lessons, including kindness and empathy, and that’s how I live my life now, as well as part of the lessons I teach my son.”
Weaponize motherhood? Being a mother doesnt automatically make you a better person & doesnt shield you from accountability
Also, it’s not your choice of words that were offensive it was your hypocritical respectability policing of other women’s choices. You stand by that so bye! https://t.co/51CU0hHQUv

Even though she apologized for her opinion, some people were still not satisfied and they asked her about the abuse she put her helper through when she was 23 years old.
In an old tweet that was shared, Tshepi said something very disturbing about assaulting her helper in the private parts… The tweet might be old, but it left many upset and questioning what kind of person Mfundi Vundla’s daughter really is and what kind of person they are. People were also concerned about the trauma the helper might have gone through.
