Miss South Africa 2015, Liesl Laurie, took to TikTok this week to share an important public service announcement for men who like bothering women at the gym. 

The 32-year-old, who is married to Dr Musa Mthombeni, says she is tired of men approaching her at the gym while she is trying to work out. 

"So, as a person who goes to the gym, I want to find out what it is about me that says come interrupt my gym session as a man - as an old man, young man, any man? What about me says come interrupt my gym session to tell me that I look good, to tell me that I am doing well, to ask me if you can buy me breakfast or lunch after my gym session? " she asked.

The University of Johannesburg (UJ) alumna begged men to leave her alone. 

"This T-shirt says TLC, it doesn't say bother me, it doesn't say tell me things I know. I know I look good, I'm coming to the gym to look good. I'm coming to the gym to work. Please leave me alone - specifically men."

Liesl Laurie and Dr Musa Mthombeni

Liesl and her husband, Musa Mthombeni, have been happily married for almost two years. They tied the knot in August 2021 - two months after they got engaged. 

The media personalities have often been described as "couple goals".  However, their social media displays of affection have rubbed some people the wrong way. 

Musa has been accused of showing his wife too much affection - if such a thing is even possible. 

From leaving sweet comments under Liesl's posts to bragging about his wife's beauty, Musa is not shy about declaring his love for his dream girl. 

He clapped back at his haters in 2021

"To those that believe that love is Depriving your partner of affection because “ women will get a big head” and then leave you..Really? This is the highest level of Smol boy energy I’ve ever heard of. Surely, this is not the reason. Surely!!" he tweeted.
