Metro FM apologised for a twitter poll ran on the station’s Twitter page on the newly crowned Miss SA Zozibini Tunzi, which had fans throbbing in emotions this past weekend.
The poll asked fans if Miss SA was “stunning”, “just ok” or “wrong choice”. The poll was later deleted and replaced with a congratulatory tweet. However, the screenshot of the tweet was already shared by many crashing the station for questioning her beauty.
The station released a statement claiming it will carry out internal measures and deal with parties involved for the unapproved content.
“We confirm that the said poll was unapproved content placed on social media without endorsement from the station. Metro FM does not stand for the content of this poll…”
The statement went on to say, “we together with the rest of South Africa celebrate women of all background, and are truly proud of the new Ms. South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi. We sincerely apologize to her and the rest of South Africa unreservedly.”
