Ugandan-born socialite Zari Hassan has been accused of stigmatizing people infected with HIV.

The boss lady, in an Instagram rant wrote how people think her lavish life is funded by baby daddy Diamond Platnumz.

She wrote how she is self-made, adding that the message was intended for some people and that those not concerned should not "ropoka kama ARV's kufichwa mchana, kumezwa usiku."

The statement angered her fans and followers who accused her of stigmatizing of people infected with HIV.

One user commented; "This was in bad taste. Are her worshipers going to support this too?"

Another added; "She should have thought of her followers who are victims before making such a statement..it's not funny at all!"

Another wrote; "Mwanamke roho chafu hata huwa nashangaa nkiona watu wakimworship 🙄."
