TopTV will screen fast-food franchise Nando’s advertisement which has been described as xenophobic, the pay channel said yesterday.
“We are prepared to use our platform to promote freedom of expression,” said TopTV’s air-time sales spokesman, Jean Meyer.
The advert begins with people jumping over a fence at one of SA’s borders, followed by a voice-over: “You know what’s wrong with South Africa? It’s all you foreigners.”
Then it proceeds to show different races across the country disappearing in puffs of smoke.
Eventually all races disappear, with only a Khoisan left.
The advertisement was refused air-play by the SABC, M-Net, DStv and e.tv. – Sapa
