Sarah Langa trends for being problematic

The Instagram influencer and fashion blogger climbed up the trends list (on a day when SO many other important things are being discussed) because she took offense to someone calling her black.

This after she told people to not be afraid to slay...

She then got all angry and defensive when someone called out her inconsistency. 

and continued on some kind of rant...

She then went on to say she falls under the category "other" when another user asked her what racial category her parents ticked on her school application forms.
