Shashi Naidoo has been facing a lot of backlash after she engaged in a debate with a follower about Palestine and 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 an interview with Tshisa Live, the star spoke candidly about the backlash she has been receiving and having to find security for her home, "I think what people are seeing on my main page is one thing and what is going on in my DMs is another thing. I have been getting death threats and wishes that I get attacked. They have been sending me my address and saying they know where I live and mustn't sleep at night. I take full accountability for my comment but have security now at my home."
