According to TshisaLIVE, James has acknowledged to Ngxoli’s accusation of racism. The actor issued a statement outlining what happened between the two of them while on set.

The statement reads:

“While returning from set one evening, we found ourselves engaged in a discussion in the cast vehicle regarding the political era and setting of the script, as well as our respective characters. During this conversation, we also reflected on racial epithets. The following morning, Ms. Ngxoli and I engaged in mutual banter, during which both of us used some of these pejorative phrases, including the K word, in a lighthearted and facetious manner, understanding the context of our exchange….

“I deeply regret any hurt Ms Ngxoli felt. I am sorry this regrettable incident still haunts her seven years later. I unequivocally state that I welcome any further investigation of this incident by any competent authority, including the Human Rights Commission. I fully support any efforts to thoroughly revisit and examine this matter.”
