BDS and Shashi Naidoo addressed Gaza comments- WATCH

JOHANNESBURG- The continuous coverage, debate and conversation over model and TV personality Shashi Nadioo Gaza comments again to the fore on Wednesday, when Naidoo held a joint press conference with Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).

The Palestine solidarity organisation said the decision to hold this press conference was after Nadioo got in touch with them. They said she reached out to BDS after she posted a comment on Twitter, where she called Gaza strip on the Palestine side a sh*thole. This comment would then cause complete uproar and Naidoo receiving death threats, including a decision for her to cancel future appearances due to safety concerns.

BDS called the criticism a positive as BDS head of South Africa region Mohamed Desai said they condemned all forms of racism, including anti-semitism, and all forms of violence, including death threats, that had allegedly been received by Naidoo.

Desai said they were humbled by Naidoo’s attempt to reach out to the organisation, and in the end Naidoo said she is willing to visit Palestine and educate herself about the lived experiences of Palestinians.
