702’s Gushwell Brooks spoke to Jawitz Properties CEO, Hershel Jawitz who clarified that Sparrow no longer works for Jawitz, “she left last year in November,” he said. But still uses the Jawitz brand on her social media account and as a reference.
Jawitz who have been receiving calls, emails and messages about Sparrow’s post said: “She’s not an employee of our brand anymore and we have been a proudly South African company. Whatever actions that should be taken up against Sparrow, Jawitz will support them.”
He admits that the comments made by the Sparrow are affecting the company. Hershel Jawitz has insisted that they have tracked her movements and reported the post on Facebook and have asked her to follow procedures, including to remove Jawitz as references on her social media accounts.
Jawitz also confirmed during the 702 interview that the company might take legal actions against her, and this might also end up with the South African Human Rights Commission.
Outraged by the racist comments by an ex employee of @JawitzProp! We are proudly SA and do not & would never tolerate racism!
