Health and Beauty retail Clicks has dared political party Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to stage it’s #ShutDownClicks protests .
Clicks posted a statement that they are not moved by the EFF planned protest, their stores will be open and operate as normal.
This comes after Clicks caused outrage with their racist advert that depicted black women’s hair as dull and damaged whilst white women’s hair was labeled normal and great.
EFF and other political parties and civil organizations called on Clicks to take serious action and fire everyone behind that advertorial. Clicks was arrogant and only issued an apology through twitter.
This move angered many people hence resulting in the planned shutdown clicks protest.
Leader of the EFF Julius Malema is mobilizing people to come together and shutdown all clicks stores untill the company takes action against the people behind the advert and issue a proper apology.
Clicks countered this move by issuing a statement that they are open and operating as normal. They have also told their customers that they have put in measures to ensure their safety.
