Metro FM’s Social media page was trending this past weekend for the wrong reasons.
The poll, run on the station’s Twitter page, asked fans if Zozibini, was “stunning”, “just ok” or “wrong choice”.
Mzansi fans and followers felt the poll was offensive towards Zozibini and slammed the station for asking those questions about her.
Metro FM has recently apologised for a social media poll on new Miss SA Zozibini Tunzi.
While the apology statement didn’t mean anything to most as many social media followers are just fed up with the radio station.
The poll was later deleted and replaced with a congratulatory message to Zozibini.
The station then issued a statement claimed it would carry out “internal measures” against those found responsible 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 and distance ourselves from it. We consider this to be totally against our ethos and brand values,” the statement said.
“We, together with the rest of South Africa, celebrate women of all backgrounds, and are truly proud of the new Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi. We sincerely apologise to her and the rest of South Africa unreservedly,” it continued.
Zozibini was undeterred by the poll. She told Sowetan she would have been bothered if it had questioned her intelligence.
