Miss SA reacts to disposable glove saga

Miss SA reacts to disposable glove saga”

As part of her philanthropic duties for that whole beauty with a objective thing, SA's fairest of them all Demi Leigh Nel Peters joined some volunteers as part of the Maslow Hotel's Soup Kitchen initiative which saw 300 children receive meals yesterday.

"All volunteers, including Demi-Leigh, wore disposable sanitary gloves while working with the food".

A third suggested she wore gloves "to protect herself from black kids" becaues she feared they would "contaminate her".

The firm's apology to South Africans did not go over well with many people who labelled it as "fake".

Some posted photos of themselves wearing gloves to type at a desk, make a drink, and read a book.

The current Miss SA received backlash when she was pictured wearing gloves while holding and taking pictures with black children at a pop-up soup kitchen at Orlando West community centre Ikageng in Soweto on Wednesday. The Miss South Africa organization said in a statement that Nel-Peters did not wear disposable gloves throughout the visit. "It was such a successful day and I am sorry that the focus is now on the gloves rather than the positive impact it had".

"It was purely to be as hygienic as possible".

She apologised to anyone offended by her actions.

Race remains a sensitive issue in South Africa, where apartheid ended in 1994.
