- Sbahle Mpisane’s first public video was removed by her family after it caused an uproar on social media
- Tweeps said that the video looked forced and that her family could have waited until she fully recovered
- Andile Mpisane explained that he was saddened by the response and only posted it to update her fans on her recovery
On Tuesday, Sbahle Mpisane appeared in her first video since she nearly lost her life in a car accident last month, but her video was not well received by tweeps and she has had to remove the video.
The Mpisane family has revealed that they were continually attacked by internet users after the video was posted so they decided to delete it for their own wellbeing.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that the video was shared by Sbahle’s brother, Andile and it was a message to her fans thanking them for their prayers and support as well as congratulating their parents on their wedding anniversary.
Sbahle was wearing a black velvet gown, a long weave and had her makeup done, which was a gift from Andile especially for the video which was filmed from her hospital bed.
Many celebs and fans were glad to see that she was recovering, however many tweeps felt that her family were forcing her to do the video and that it could have waited until she was further along in her recovery.
TimesLIVE reports that Andile removed the video and explained that they had received so much negativity, that it was better for him to just take it down.
He went on to say that the video was intended to inform the public of how she was doing and to simply thank them for standing with her during such a tough time in her life, but he was hurt to receive such a backlash from it.
According to ZAlebs, some tweeps were more concerned about her looks and felt that she shouldn’t have shown her face until she looked better, which is unfair seeing as she almost died in the crash.
