Malcolm X asserted that he aligns himself with people whom others look down upon. His statement came after South Africans on social media threw shade at well-known businessman Pastor Gucci, saying that his Gucci gear was actually fake, as Briefly.co.za reported earlier.
Malcolm X showed his solidarity with Gucci by having lunch with him in Sandton in an effort to support those undermined by society.
Despite social media hating on him, Gucci is determined to show the haters that he is thriving. He recently said he is the proud owner of two properties in Ga Masemola and Tembisa and a vehicle which he paid for in cash, as TimesLive reported.
Gucci ignores haters and says that people are just jealous of him.
Malcolm X has also been criticised on social media despite his philanthropic efforts. He has donated millions of rands to those who need assistance.
South Africans questioned where his money came from and called for official investigations into his financial affairs.
Malcom says that people can talk but he is a legitimate businessman and won’t change how he helps people just because people are talking.
Malcolm X is perhaps able to relate to being the subject of criticism on social media. He therefore claims to actively make an effort to support those being condemned by South Africans on social media.
"I appreciate and align myself with all the people that you look down to. Bring them on," said Malcolm.
