What our Celebs had to say about the Xenophobic attacks

2015-01-23 12:45

We were all shocked when we heard of Xenophobic attacks against foreigners in Soweto this week .

The looting and violence which took place has been heavily condemned both locally and internationally and has seen a number of high profile South Africans speak out, including Kuli Roberts, actress Celeste Ntuli and DJ Black Coffee .

While many celebs tweeted to express their shock and sadness at the events, Kuli Roberts was one of the first to really respond to the news, she commented "You would think as BLACK PEOPLE in SA we would know BETTER! That we would HAVE learnt about HATE and Violence". She then changed her Twitter name to #WeAreNigeria in solidarity.

She was joined a few hours later by DJ Black Coffee who took to Instagram to post a pic of himself with his hand outstretched and the caption "WE ARE ONE #SowetoUnrest #masihlanganeni".

Actress Celeste Ntuli was a little more vocal in her reaction. She took to social media to release a stinging statement (which you can see below) to all the people involved in the incident, along with comment:"We all AFRICANS let's stop this madness so we can LIVE LOVE LAUGH together!! #ILOVEALLAFRICANS."
