The news that radio presenter and comedian Tumi Morake and her family were involved in a car accident on Friday has been met with disparaging comments on social media, including that the incident was "karma".
Other users have stated that those who were criticising her following a dangerous accident were being racist. Morake, who was travelling with her husband and three children, was driving towards Sun City in a sponsored silver Jaguar when the head-on collision took place on the R556.
The occupants of both cars sustained minor injuries.
The comedian’s publicist, Monica Steyn, told Channel24 that Morake and her family were doing okay, but were quite shaken.
In September Morake faced backlash over a comment she made on apartheid during the breakfast show on Jacaranda FM.
Morake compared apartheid to a bully taking a child's bicycle, and then the child being made to share the bicycle.
Social media crime pages shared details of the accident, including pictures of the damaged vehicles and the response was vitriolic. Screen grabs from comments on the Intelligence Bureau SA post on the accident were being shared on Twitter. Users said the accident was "blind justice" and that "karma is a bitch".
