After the recent (very fake) rumours that she died, Sophie Ndaba had something to say to those spreading the lie. She thought the whole thing was horrible and disheartening.
Sophie Ndaba got some seriously negative attention lately. First she suffered under body-shame related to her weight loss and then these rumours of her death surfaced.
At first, it was 'reported' that the breakfast show Expresso informed the country of Sophie's death but they quickly set the record straight.
Sophie had no kind words for the people behind the fake death rumours.
She said South Africans need to grow up and stop making jokes when people were dealing with real challenges, according to a report by TimesLIVE.
She said her son tried calling her when he heard the rumours but couldn't get through because her phone was on silent.
Do people who start these rumours even think about what it does to our children or that parents can end up having a heart attack?
The actress added that the culprits need to stop and think about the families of people with chronic diseases.
People are dying of depression, cancer and HIV and yet South Africans have time for jokes. Half of SA is suffering with some chronic disease which is such a challenge for families, so people need to grow up.
According to Sophie it's irresponsible for people to put others under such pressure and stress.
