Shocking pictures and a video of a girl arriving to her matric dance in a coffin has gone viral on social media.
In the pictures and video, the girl is seen been lying in a open coffin and later being carried out while surrounded by what appears to be her peers.
Although it is not clear where the pictures and the video originate, the story was ran by Black Loop, which is based in Brazil.
Many people on social media are outraged. Daily Sun spoke to cultural expert Refiloe Waga Khunou who called the act unacceptable.
“In terms of our culture, what you are doing is asking the universe what you will receive,” he told Daily Sun.
Refiloe also said that he believes she is attracting bad luck to herself.
“She’s calling for her early death, she is calling for Karma to strike by making an early wish to die, and it doesn’t reflect well.
“Death is not something to be taken lightly,” he said.
