A social media influencer identified on Twitter as Motara is currently catching some heat over a recent video upload which captured the appalling moment she mocked a child beggar with her drink.

In the video, Motara who was driving was seen asking the child if she wants to have a taste of her drink.

 

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.

Although Motara deleted the video, it had already gone viral on social media earning her criticisms from many internet users who found the video shocking and disappointing.

 

The reactions came in folds as Motara – only a few hours ago – had shared the story of how her mom hawked to take care of them after her father abandoned them.

While some internet users have blasted her, others have expressed interest in tracking down and financially helping the little girl

Brothers Keepers which is one of the organizations she is part of, has now cut her off following the anger the video incited.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the group wrote:

“Brotherskeeper is an organisation that believes in humanitarian services and not the contrary. Due to this, we regret to announce that @ladymotara is no longer a member of Brotherskeeper and has been suspended from her duty as the Pro henceforth. The reason for this decision stems from a viral video circulating on social media of our PRO making fun of a beggar in her car while driving and sipping her drink.

“This act goes contrary to what our great organization stands for and believes in; therefore, it has been condemned in all sincerity. She is hereby directed to handover every documents of the Brotherskeeper organisation in her custody. We wish her good luck in her endeavours. Brotherskeeper will never be in support of any degrading or dehumanising act. We stand for love, tolerance and much more.”

Following the backlash, Motara reacted and said she was sorry for her action.

She wrote: “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.

“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.”
