WATCH: Shashi Naidoo’s Awkward Press Conference with BDS South Africa

I mentioned earlier today how South African celebrity Shashi Naidoo had seemingly capitulated under the weight of all the death threats she was receiving in the wake of her pro-Israel comments. This capitulation was to include a press conference with BDS South Africa.

Here is video from the press conference. I may be wrong, but to me, Shashi Naidoo looks to me like a caged animal, saying things almost robotically, as if she has been coached. The word “hostage” comes to mind.

Note how she is introduced by the BDS-hole who claims they are not into “mind control” – before he seemingly whispers instructions to her.

Did you also notice the caged animal look at the end of her speech?

The cringeworthiness continues when she answers a question about the death threats,  practically excusing them. She follows this up by thanking BDS South Africa for giving her the opportunity to speak(!) Note also the BDS-hole whispering to her “You do not have to answer that one” when she asked whether she has forgiven herself. It truly seems like she is following orders.

If you ask me, this circus was the result of Shashi Naidoo being utterly scared for her life and possibly even career. She seems like someone desperate to appease those who have the ability to make her life hell.

For the second time this month, intimidation by the Israel haters seems to have won the day.
