American singer, Jason Derulo comes under fire from from South Africans after he made a remark at the South African Of The Year (SATY) Awards on the night of Saturday, October 17, 2015.
The 26-year-old who was the main act at the awards ceremony angered South Africans after he asked guests if they could speak English.
He had asked the audience to stand up while he performed but when some people wouldn’t rise to their feet, Jason asked the audience: “Y’all speak English, right?”
Here’s how the South African twitter is reacting to the question…
"Speaking English" remark I made, was directed to a specific table. It wasn't literal, just a figure of speech when someone isn't responding
