South African Luxury Hotel Apologizes for ‘Ginger Bread Shack House’ Photos

Orient-Express’ posh Mount Nelson Hotel in South Africa is apologizing for its tweet that includes a photo of a ‘ginger bread shack house.’ Wow, it’s unbelievable. How insensitive some people can be. Really? A ginger bread shack house? Their social media person should be looking for a new job, at the minimum. The backlash was as swift as the backlash that was unleashed on Justine Sacco for her racist AIDS dig. What a way to honor the legacy of Nelson Mandela.
