- Babalwa Mneno jumped to show her support to the EFF and many others who demanded Clicks be shut down
- Babalwa took to social media to notify her followers that she would be protesting at Clicks at The Wedge, and best believe she was
- So many thanked Babalwa for her support and let her know where they would be
Babalwa Mneno was one of the many SA celebs who were gutted over the Clicks TRESemmé black girl hair saga. Babalwa was at the forefront of the protests this morning.
Recently, Clicks has become embroiled in a scandal around an advert which was widely perceived as racist, insinuating that black people's hair was dry and damaged. The people of Mzansi were having none of it.
Briefly.co.za saw that Babalwa jumped to show her support to the EFF and many others who demanded Clicks be shut down as a result of this. Sis was not joking when she pledged her support.
Clicks had released an apology for the ad, which they did not create but featured on their website. The company that made the ad is TRESemmé. The incident has gotten the whole country worked up, even the EFF has waded into the fray.
Babalwa took to social media to notify her followers that she would be at Clicks at The Wedge on Rivonia Road this morning, and she was.
“I will be at Clicks at the Wedge on Rivonia rd tomorrow from 8am......”
“Clicks at the Wedge... #asijiki”
Fans took to the comment section to let Babalwa know how much they appreciated her support and that they too would be at their respective Clicks outlets to take a stand. Mzansi does not play when it comes to things like this!
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Pearl Thusi has her own hair product, the popular Black Pearl brand. It is available for purchase at - you guessed it - Clicks.
Pearl Thusi shared a statement made by the company that produces her brand, Black Pearl. The owner of Afrobotanics Ntombenhle Khathwane. Ntombenhle has been very proactive on the issue.
Not every person has taken the issue to heart and some are happy with the way both Clicks and TRESemmé have handled the issue. Mistakes happen and this one was handled, but clearly not well enough for some.
