Lady Du reacts after being dragged for supporting the lady who stole at Jet Mall in SA.
The vocalist got emotional after watching how the lady was caught by the employees at the mall.
She was caught with huggies pampers as seen in the video which went viral.
Du volunteered to help the lady after it was revealed that she stole the pampers for her chid.
The singer further stated that the employees who humiliated the lady should get disciplined.
However, some social media users slammed Lady Du for promoting theft.
“Morning, I see a lot of people angry at the fact that I’m helping lulama saying I’m promoting theft, if lulama as pretty as she is went and sold her body she’d be called names, don’t you think she knew she was risking her life and future for her kids, my issue with all this is how she was humiliated, the staff knows very well they need to take her to the back of the store call for help and let management deal with her. I’ve helped a lot of people, I don’t post them because no one wants to be seen struggling!!!”
“Even with her, I asked for permission to share her number and details after seeing her because of all the people who asked to assist. I used the video to locate her so I can assist as I am a mother too. We need to learn more about mental health, stop triggering people into killing themselves by posting their miseries… we all have been through tough times. Let’s be kinder,” she wrote.
The Amapiano star further explained why she said the employees must be disciplined.
“No one should get fired but discipline doesn’t mean firing people, reprimanding them, teaching them how to handle such situations, as a business owner Ok let’s say she had a gun, she takes it out and starts shooting everyone, when she was told to take them out in public see??? You can look at it however way you want but rules are rules. Contracts are signed that state what should be done. Also what if jet sent a secret shopper? To steal to see how the staff would react??? See??? people would be losing their jobs, before you comment thinking of the bad things that could happen.”
“Think about all the other things that come with it. They panicked went against company policy. She just wanted Huggies for her child, is it wrong, yes, do I condone theft no, lesson in all this is humanity!!!! Putting yourself in someone’s shoes thinking about how many times you’ve been through this probably thought of the same thing.”
