- Mihlali Ndamase has spoken out about the recent brutal killings of black people in the US
- The influencer is not even afraid to lose sponsors for speaking up
- The stunner told a social media user where to get off when the user tried to ask her not to be vocal on such matters because she"ll jeorpadise her future
Mihlali Ndamase is not afraid to lose "a bag" for speaking out against racism and the brutal killing of black people.
An unidentified social media user sent her a direct message on Instagram asking her not to be vocal following the death of US citizen George Floyd and Mzansi citizen Collins Khosa.
"I don’t think it's wise for you to be so vocal during this time… Don't jeopardise your future and what you mean to us as black people just because of what’s going on right now… Please be careful."
But Mihlali stood firm and told the user where to get off.
"I will not be silent about the killing of my people. Where one door closes, many will open so if any brand does not want to be associated with me after this so be it at least I will lose a 'bag' knowing I wasn't silent during this time because silence will not protect us," the stunner said.
The influencer was applauded for being courageous and not being afraid to lose sponsors over the cause. She told a fan who commended her on Twitter:
"That DM irritated me so much because it reminds me of my schooling days: black children being called unruly and told to keep quiet about racism to avoid getting in trouble. It was intimidating then, but now?! Now you can't be thinking like that as an adult."
Briefly.co.za reported that Minnie Dlamini-Jones has shared her opinion on social media following both the brutal incidents.
Scores of people - including US and Mzansi citizens - have taken to social media to voice their grievances following both the incidents.
