I made my video today NOT to start a war, but to take responsibility for my actions & clear my name. There ARE two sides to every story, & now you’ve heard both. I’m sure more will be said, but I’m moving on. You can form your opinions, but PLEASE do not send any hate to anyone.

I’m working on not reacting out of anger & working through patience for what this right thing to do is. 🙏🏻❤️ I remind you all… as I remind myself to do what you can to lead with kindness.

Somebody blindsided Arnold Schwarzenegger with a running drop kick and it was like when that biker hit him with a pool stick in T2. It barely fazed him. He’s 71! pic.twitter.com/XBlYBlCupH

Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.

Stop defending Khanya’s reckless behavior .She seems to like the road she’s drank.We don’t care about her drinking but she should stop being selfish and think about other road users too. This happened earlier this year # Khanya pic.twitter.com/ehtGwqAAzF

That Khanya video is frustrating 😤 Why did the bitch officer take a video of her? Does she also take videos of other people she arrests? Argh 😤 People are just bitter especially if you doing better than them in life.
