    "Afrikaans"? Is that some pretentious bullshit term for dutch?

    Charlize Theron, Miss Universe 2017 Demi Leigh Nel Peters and Candice Swanepoel, ALL South African and all Afrikaans Native speakers. There is something in the water in South Africa!

    3% of the world's population speaks Afrikaans? That's over 200 million people. South Africa has a population of 55 million.

  • Kristian Brandt - 3 hours ago

    HA! 3% that's nothing, try Danish. It's the official language of a modern and well established nation, and not whatever the European equivalent of an isolated tribe language is, but seeing as the nation in question is rather small, you could fit the entire Danish speaking population in New York City, and easily have room for 3 million more. And that's including the territories of Greenland and Faroe Islands.

    3 % of the worlds population speaks Afrikaans? I am South African, and what the ffffff are you on about??? You saying that 210 000 000 speak Afrikaans....that is 4 times the population of South Africa. What are you teaching the foreigners Charlize. Nee vok, jy moet net gaan kak met jou kak...en hoe jy se soos 'n buitelander.

  • Timmy R - 22 hours ago

    I wonder why she doesn’t speak out about all the white people who are being murdered in South Africa. I also wonder why she doesn’t speak out about the South African government confiscating land from white South Africans without compensation.

  • b.cage - 22 hours ago

    Maybe they should worry less about her speaking afrikaans, and worry a little more about that factthat the white african farmers are murdered in record numbers and the government is calling for white genocide.
