Buhle Samuels Covid-19 joke gets her in trouble on Twitter

Buhle Samuels‘ attempt at humour during these uncertain Covid-19 times has backfired. On Twitter, the Muvhango actress said she thought some positives would come from the 21-day lockdown, which takes effect at midnight on Thursday and ends on April 16.

“I think one of the positive things that will come from the Covid-19 lockdown is no crime for a whole 21 days! It is said a habit can be formed/broken in 21 days, let’s hope thieves can learn better ways to behave in society!

I think one of the positive things that will come from the Covid-19 lockdown is no crime for a whole 21 days! It is said a habit can be formed/ broken in 21 days, let’s hope thieves can learn better ways to behave in society! #21daysLockdown

Her tweet didn’t land as she intended. People started filling up her mentions with what the lockdown meant for most South Africans.

Some said her tweets were “stupid” and that crime would go up because people were losing their jobs.

Buhle had to “defend” herself.

It will rise. People will lose their homes and jobs. The number of people on poverty will increase after this. Crime will increase.

Some [of] you need to have a little more humour! If you believe from just one tweet I’ve posted that I believe people can just stop being thieves in 21 days then I think you need to worry more about yourself!” she said.

Some you need to have a little more humor! If you believe from just one tweet I’ve posted that I believe people can just stop being thieves in 21 days then I think you need to worry more about yourself! ?

Maybe they believe it because it was you who said it, I’d believe it too you seen yourself speak? You capture ppl shame
