For those of you who are still in denial about the act being offensive, here's an explanation; Blackface is a form of "art" that non-black people use when trying to portray a black person. According to CNN, any skin tone you wear that is not really yours, is racist.

This left many perplexed and outraged over the viral TikTok clip. Her back-up dancers are all jamming along and performing the Jerusalema challenge.

Some do not find this offensive however many have voiced out their disgust and outrage over the fact that black South Africans do not find it racist.
