SABC denies reports that Pearl Thusi has been fired by SABC's COO
The TV personality was reportedly dismissed for showing Hlaudi Motsoeneng the middle finger.
Earlier today, Sowetan Live said Thusi had been asked to leave after allegedly showing Motsoeneng the middle finger.
The SABC however says the statement is false and that Thusi's resignation was voluntarily.
"Nobody dismissed her. I don't know where Mr Motsoeneng comes in especially when a person comes to us with a resignation letter and resigns. People are malicious and try to attribute everything to Motsoeneng. She has resigned and we are engaging with her about other responsibilities that she has here."
The 27-year-old had her final broadcast with SABC's music show Live Amp on Friday.
She will now be co-hosting MTV Africa's Lip Sync Battle, which will premier next month.
