Brenda Ngxoli Accuses Former 7de Laan Actor David James Of Racism on Set “Called Me Kaf*ir”

Additionally, she mentions an incident where she raised concerns about a fellow actor being left behind in a burning house during a scene, but her concerns were dismissed.

In a shocking revelation, award-winning actress Brenda Ngxoli has come forward to accuse actor David James of racially derogatory behavior towards her while they were working together on the film “Sew the Winter to My Skin”. Ngxoli alleges that James called her a racial slur, leaving her deeply hurt and affected.

According to Ngxoli, James approached her on set and said, “Hey, jou, kaffir meit.” This derogatory term, widely recognized as offensive and racist, left Ngxoli feeling humiliated and disrespected.

She states that she did not sign the contract or the non-disclosure agreement that followed, which has given her the freedom to speak out about the incident.

Despite facing pressure from production lawyers and even experiencing delayed payment, Ngxoli has remained steadfast in her decision to share her experience. She emphasizes that she will not be silenced, regardless of the consequences.

Ngxoli reveals that she believes her remuneration was deliberately delayed as a form of punishment for refusing to sign a contract that would prevent her from speaking out about the incident. She shares her experience of financial difficulties during the following December, suggesting that her delayed payment was a deliberate act.

Ngxoli also highlights the biased treatment she received during the production. She claims that she was portrayed as difficult and problematic, while the perpetrators were always favored by the production team.

Additionally, she mentions an incident where she raised concerns about a fellow actor being left behind in a burning house during a scene, but her concerns were dismissed.

The actress further alleges that false rumors were spread about her making advances towards a male actor after she had raised the issue of him fondling her thighs during a scene. Ngxoli implies that the production team twisted the narrative to protect the perpetrators and discredit her.

Despite the challenges she faced, Ngxoli asserts her right to freedom of speech. She expresses her disappointment at not being invited to the film’s launch and being remunerated much later. However, she remains determined to exercise her freedom to share her story.

Ngxoli also mentions an incident where she was transported in the same transfer taxi as James after the shoot, suggesting that it was a deliberate act to further traumatize her.

Ngxoli’s bravery in speaking out against racism and standing up for her rights serves as a reminder that no one should be subjected to such derogatory treatment. It is a call to action for the entertainment industry to address issues of racism and ensure a safe and inclusive working environment for all.
