A couple of weeks ago, Shashi Naidoo faced a lot of backlash after she engaged in a debate with a follower about Israel in her Instagram comments. During the debate with a follower, Shashi labelled Gaza a 'sh*thole' and seemed to be pro-Israeli, a claim she has since denounced.
In a press conference, the media personality said that she would be visiting Palestine to be educated about life there, according to a statement released by BDS SA, the socialite has been barred from entering Palestine by Israeli authorities.
"Earlier today Israel prevented Shashi Naidoo passage to Palestine. Israeli authorities control access to Palestine and blocked her on the orders of Israel’s Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and the recommendation of Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan."
