MISS South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, has received backlash from social media for pictures doing the rounds of her, giving food to underprivileged children wearing latex gloves.
Nel-Peters was a volunteer at a Maslow Hotel soup kitchen, that was handing over food to 300 kids at a children’s home in Ikageng Soweto.
According to Nel-Peters, everyone at the event was wearing gloves for hygienic purposes as they were dealing with food.
Following the accident Nel-Peters posted a video on Twitter to provide clarity on the gloves issue, “To everyone asking about the gloves, I truly hope that you’ll hear my heart and understand that it came from a place of wanting to do good.”
Twitter was having none-of-it, as they expressed anger over the latex gloves and going to the point of calling her racist.
