In the interview with Mac G the actress talked about colourism and her thoughts on light skin privilege. She revealed that, growing up, she was the only light-skinned person in her group, and was often teased and bullied for being different.

When asked if she wished she was darker-skinned, she said she used to burn her skin as a child because of the teasing.

“Uh, I used to like burn my skin when I was a kid to stop the teasing,” Thusi told Mac G.The conversation was sparked by a previous incident experienced by Thusi on the controversial topic of colourism and light skin privilege on Twitter.

Rhythm City actress Bonnie Mbuli, whom Thusi said she regarded as an older sister, joined the heated colourism conversation on Twitter. The tweet that has since been removed read:

“So when a light-skinned actress complains abt the one or two roles they didn’t get coz they weren’t dark enuf; I’m like but the part ur crying abt was being the slave who gets raped and beat up in the thing, ppl who look like u have never had to be in that position to begin with.”
