Department of Sports, Arts and Culture spokesperson Masechaba Ndlovu has landed in hot water again after she shared a video on social media that many people felt was in poor taste. 

In a now-deleted tweet, Ndlovu shared a video of father and son Valdo and Lindokuhle sharing the importance of washing your hands along with other precautionary measures during the coronavirus outbreak. 

However, in the video, the duo use a stereotypical “Chinese accent” to bring their message across, which was slammed by many social media users as distasteful and racist.

Following the initial backlash, Ndlovu deleted the post but that has not stopped Twitter users from sharing their disdain for the video. 

This incident comes after Ndlovu incorrectly stated two weeks ago that the coronavirus death toll in South Africawas 64 when she was actually referring to confirmed positive cases at the time.
