SA woman makes Hong Kong protest all about her, and social media reacts
With the ongoing protests in Hong Kong where citizens have been protesting for weeks against a now-shelved extradition bill, which would see criminal suspects deported to mainland China, a South African woman made the whole protest about her.
A video of her saying she moved from South Africa to avoid protests, has sparked a reaction on social media with some calling her privileged and ignorant.
She said she lives in the area, and explained: “I came from South Africa to move away from this... I don’t want this. This is not the Hong Kong I’ve grown to love.” pic.twitter.com/q8rO0Jxnbo— Elaine Yu (@yuenok) August 11, 2019

The selfish tears of this woman are exemplary of the worst instincts of South African whiteness. She cares more about herself than she does about democracy or protest. https://t.co/mhRsXPe81b— Sisonke Msimang (@Sisonkemsimang) August 12, 2019
