The video of social media influencer identified on Twitter as Motara, teasing a child beggar with a bottle of drink, is going viral in France and the United States.
In the video, Motara who was driving was seen asking the child if she wants to have a taste of her drink
When the child nods in the affirmative, Motara then proceeds to take a sip of the drink before bursting out in laughter as she drives off – the child still chasing after her.
She has since taken to her page to apologize over the sad incident, writing;
“I made the video yesterday cause stupidly I thought it was funny. I went ahead to foolishly post it on my whatsapp story and immediately I did a lot of people called me out on my stupidity and I deleted it cos I realized that my actions were extreme.
I’m sorry for mocking the girl and no amount of money I would have given her would have justified what I actually did. I realized that yesterday and it has resonated again today. Sorry doesn’t fix anything but I hope it can somehow lessen the blows of my stupidity. “
Since the video hit social media, many users have criticized the social media influencer, and her Twitter account is currently suspended.
The video is also now trending outside the shores of Africa, as French Twitter users expressed shock at her cruelty.
A French user posted the video and the user already has almost 1 million views, while WorldStarHipHop also published the video.
