During a press conference at BDS South Africa offices in Johannesburg, media personality Shashi Naidoo apologised on Wednesday for her “ignorant, copy and paste” message about Palestine that landed her in hot water a few days ago.
Naidoo received not only harsh criticism but death also threats, following her Instagram post which she said she received from a “friend”. She referred to Gaza as "a sh*thole" during a debate about the Palestine-Israel on social media.
Naidoo said her next step is to embark on a journey to Palestine in order to educate herself and others about the issues of human rights in the Palestine/Israel.
This is following a proposal by BDS South Africa for Naidoo to go on a facts finding visit to Palestine.
