Tuesday was a busy day on the streets of Twitterville, thanks to actress Pearl Thusi and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.

The pair took jabs at each other following the EFF's nationwide assaults on H&M stores to protest the retail giant's "monkey ad".

Journalist and SABC News' U.N. bureau chief Sherwin Bryce-Pease told the pair to play nicely –– also telling everyone to take a deep breath and engage respectfully.
