- Coconut Kelz has weighed in on current affairs in another hilarious video
- The comedian shared her opinions about De Klerk's recent divisive comments about apartheid
- She jokingly concluded that the president was misunderstood and no offence was meant
Local comedian, Coconut Kelz, has found the funny side to FW de Klerk's recent comments about apartheid. The funny lady, who usually pretends to be a white woman, said that de Klerk was probably confused about the term 'crimes against humanity' because he did not see black people as humans.
De Klerk recently came under fire when he denied apartheid being a crime against humanity, despite it being declared as such by the UN. He said the classification was used to stigmatise white South Africans.
His comments received heavy backlash from various individuals and organisations, forcing him to retract and apologise.
Kelz decided to lighten the situation a bit by taking to her YouTube channel to share her opinion. She jokingly explained that De Klerk did not consider black people humans back then, therefore apartheid was not a crime against humanity. In the hilarious footage, she can be heard saying:
“It was a crime against blacks, but blacks weren't humans then, therefore not humanity. That's all he meant, no offence guys.”
