A white woman was labelled a racist after she made a controversial statement about the vaccination campaign.
Louise van Rhyn took to Twitter to share her racist and classist views. She targeted poor Black people.
She posted this, “Why are we not making vaccines mandatory for all those who receive SASSA grants? Would that not be a fair exchange?”
People did not take her racist tweet lying down. Here are some of the comments that Black people left on her tweet:
“You’re racist and antipoor and that’s because you’re insinuating that black people are the biggest group of covid carriers and antivaxxers and you believe black people are the only people who receive social grants.”
“I think making it mandatory for illegal settlers aka Apartheid beneficiaries would be a great idea.”
“Oh Yes Louise van Rhyn. Let's take away the basic human rights of the poor and insult their dignity by forcing them to choose between getting the vaccine and their survival. Racist prick.”
“Why are we not making vaccines mandatory for Europeans maybe it will do the jobs for us. It will be the fairest exchange.”
