Johannesburg - Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa is a gatvol! Gatvol of people and their racial slurs!
The popular actress, who is also married to DJ Black Coffee, recently took to Instagram to speak about the racial slurs and insults she has had to endure after making her debut on popular SABC 2 soapie 7de Laan.
Enhle plays the role of Nandi, a woman who is involved in an interracial romance with Bernard - another character on the show.
But if you thought that her character's romance would bring applause and praise from South Africa, think again. Instead, Enhle and the show have been the subject of several racial comments, both on social media and on the set of the show itself.
“Bernard and Nandi received some racist slurs from their on-screen debut this past week, (production expected it and so did I, and change was the point) but the crazy thing is racial slurs happened on set with people I thought were educated and open minded (sic).” she added.
Enhle says that she has brought up the abuse in hope of opening the conversation about racism in the country.
