Some people thought that this video was disrespectful. It’s not funny imitating a widow as she is going through a lot right now. Everything in South Africa seems to be a joke these days that people have lost compassion for each other. See some comments from other users below:
“As much as South Africans joke about everything, I believe death is one thing we can’t joke about. Even our parents taught us that, so it’s surprising to find people making a mockery of the situation ka babes. We can joke about anything but not death.”
Do you think it was appropriate for Babes to dance at her late husband’s funeral? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
