Social media jeers at Theresa 'Maybot's awkward dance-off in S. Africa

Web Desk

Theresa May's first-ever official visit to South Africa may have been a success in terms of bilateral trade linkage but social media veered off to something else it found for its daily mockery: the British PM's obviously awkward dance moves.

Kicking off her tour of Africa, May joined a group of school children in Cape Town, moving sideways, bobbing up and down like a roly-poly toy, and grinning at them.

She was at the ID Mkhize Senior Secondary school in Cape Town's Gugulethu. It was a bizarre sight — considering her usually serious demeanour — but May was apparently quite happy at how she was received in the country.

"I thank all those young people who were involved in the performances outside who welcomed me," she said, as per The Telegraph.

However, Twitter had a field day after the video surfaced — posted by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation in South Africa — and comments ranged from light humour to some eyebrow-raising jokes.

Here's how it played out:

'Freedom of movement surgically removed…'

'Robot stuck in reverse'

Someone was excited to see the 'maybot walk'

Some compared her to cartoon characters

One person asked if 'someone forgot to oil her', a reference to maybot

And comparing to other politicians

Others joked about batteries

Someone said she was an alien in a 'human suit'

What happens 'when she really breaks it down?'

Many were just there for the reaction gifs

One person advised politicians to never dance

Another commented to 'lock yourself'

Remixes were also made!

…so were lists

For some, their day became 'weird'

One person was proud of themselves compared to May

A few were sympathetic

All in all, a lot of fun!
