South Africa Asks Hilarious Questions With #AmericaCanIAsk Hashtag On Twitter
By Sharelle Burt
South African had time on Twitter earlier this week to ask the questions they’ve always been curious about.
It’s no secret some stereotypes floats over the African continent. From poverty to the constant conversation about color, South Africa has had enough. Residents of the country decided to ask Americans questions using the hashtag #AmericaCanIAsk, finally getting it off their chests. The questions and the responses were hilarious.
Remember the video that was recently floating around showing lions causing a traffic jam in the middle of the street? Well, they weren’t too fond of Americans that seem to think this is the norm.
What makes y'all think we have Lions roaming about in our Streets? pic.twitter.com/CNfZ9kFn1I

It’s common sense that football over here is much different than football in South Africa. It’s actually a completely different sport. Here in the states, we call it soccer. But that didn’t stop residents from asking the question.

There have been plenty of celebrities that have come from South Africa and made a name for themselves. Everyone’s favorite Charlize Theron and the bad boy of cars, Mr. Elon Musk, to name a few. But South Africa has named late-night talk show host Trevor Noah their pride and joy. So much so that they want him returned to sender.

Speaking of celebrities, South Africa has a problem when it comes to being overlooked for world tours. Yes, we know Beyonce and Jay-Z were just there, but that’s not enough for them.

They also had time to question the film industry. There is a high possibility that movie lovers around the world feel the same way, but that doesn’t mean the question shouldn’t be asked. South Africa wants answers.
