Twitter was abuzz on Tuesday night after a video was released showing Ntando Duma involved in an argument with a lady for parking in the wrong spot. 

Duma was live on Instagram when the incident happened. 

In the video, a lady can be heard reprimanding the South African actress for parking in a spot allocated for the disabled. 

The woman, who remains unseen throughout the video, can be heard telling Duma: “My point is you’re not allowed to park in there. There’s a ramp… there’s a sign there that says 'Wheelchairs only’”. 

Duma then asks the woman: “Who says I’m not using a wheelchair?”. 

The actress carries on insulting the lady, even threatening to beat her up.

Duma has since apologised. 

"In light of a recording from last year which has recently surfaced, I would like to apologize unreservedly as I fully understand that my behaviour was unaccceptable," she said in a statement posted on Twitter.
