During the verbal altercation, Ntando can be heard repeating how "white people are annoying" and then goes on to insult the woman by throwing profanities at her. Towards the end of the video, she then proclaims how "she will not be bullied by white people".
Tweeps did not take kindly to the video and many criticised the actress for verbally abusing the woman while she was in the wrong. Others accused her of playing the race card unnecessarily and expressed how wrong she was to park in a spot meant for disabled people.
Following the backlash, the actress - who plays Mpho on The Queen - issued out a statement in which she apologised for her actions.
“In light of a recording from last year which has recently resurfaced, I would like to apologise unreservedly as I fully understand that my behaviour was unacceptable,” she began.
Ntando then went on to claim that she had been asked by the food establishment to park in that spot since she was quickly going to pick up her food. She then continued to apologise.
“…To that end, I do not wish to justify my behaviour on that day, the issue is that this matter could have and should have been handled better.”
