By Amechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – This is the moment a white woman pulled a handgun on black activists in South Africa as they protested a hair advert that has been deemed racist.
The 52-year-old woman got into a confrontation with far-left activists in a shopping mall in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday, amid nationwide demonstrations against the Clicks chain of pharmacies which broadcast the advert.
Protesters from the far-left Economic Freedom Fighters political party have been targeting branches of Clicks at malls across South Africa since the weekend, after it shared an advert online that was deemed racist.
The ad, which ran on its website, showed four contrasting images of hair – two images of black women with natural hair, and two images of blonde, white women.
The black women’s hair was labelled ‘frizzy, dull, dry and damaged’ while the white women’s hair was called ‘fine, flat and normal’.
