Social media users weighed in on the matter with some supporting Ntsiki while others said the advert was being taken out of context.
"The fact that they scratched it out it would have been dope if they used mama ester’s designs rather not this nonsense."
"This is not invalidating ancestors at all, it's a way of saying "we are reaching milestones we never thought were possible". My ancestors could have never imagined owning a BMW because they didn't even know it existed, I on the other hand just didn't think I'd reach that far."
"They should have used a white girl's picture, and then we know they are referring to their ancestors."
"Unbelievable!! Wow! Unbelievable!."
"I’m sorry but someone saying “BMW is cancelling our ancestors” is dusting me."
