Isabelle Daza draws flak for ‘insensitive’ Africa children post
Model-TV host Isabelle Daza has earned the ire of netizens for her post on Instagram that mentioned hunger-plagued children in Africa.
In one of her Instagram stories on Saturday, Daza took a picture of herself trying on a brown hat with the text: “Buy this hat for my Africa looks or FEED children in Africa for the same price?”
“What would Angelina Jolie do?!” Daza added, referring to the American actress and humanitarian who was appointed special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in 2012.
Daza’s controversial post has already been deleted as of writing, but many netizens were able to take a screenshot and called her out for being “insensitive,” “dense,” “racist,” “privileged,” and “matapobre.”

A lot of people trying to be relevant over the internet and incredibly failing at it. Take Isabelle Daza for starters
