Florence Masebe Ring of Lies racism

Veteran actress Florence Masebe took to Twitter on Tuesday to talk about a “horrible incident” she witnessed on set.

Masebe has accused a member of staff of making racist comments.

"'I can speak to you anyway I like because I'm white'. This is what a crew member just said to our director who is a black man," she tweeted on Tuesday.

She added: "Racism is out here dancing on our set."

Florence’s colleague, Dineo Nchabeleng, seems to support her claims, and also spoke out about what she has experienced on the Ring of Lies set.

According to an EWN report, creative director Sam Lotter Dell claims the crew member was incorrectly quoted.

But Florence tweeted on Wednesday morning that she stands by her tweets.

Mzansi Magic says it is investigating the claims, and condemns discrimination.
