South African’s Model, Shashi Naidoo Apologizes, Announces Trip to Palestine

South African celebrity and model Shashi Naidoo announced on Wednesday that she would go on a fact-finding tour of Palestine, following the outcry over her social media posts.

Naidoo has come under much scrutiny after her comments about Israel and Palestine.

She appeared at a press conference held by BDS South Africa where she accepted a proposal to go on a guided tour of Palestine to learn more about the conflict.

In her social media post, Naidoo referred to Gaza as a shithole during a debate with an Instagram user. She later admitted that the response was copied and pasted from a friend who she thought had a more educated viewpoint.

The itinerary of her tour will be guided by the South African Council of Churches and South African Jews for a Free Palestine.
