The store went on to clarify that it had come to their attention that Jelly Baby behaved inappropriately towards the staff member and not the other way around. “Furthermore, we acknowledge that the staff members’ rights and privacy have been violated and will be guiding her appropriately in line with the POPIA, as she was filmed without her consent.” They have asked for Jelly Babie to make a public apology to the company and employee.” Jelly Babie posted on social media, “I can see your texts in inbox, they are more than 500. I can’t reply to all of them. Thanks for the support, even those who insult me thank you.” Her manager has not responded to calls and text messages regarding the matter.
