It doesn't happen often that the majority of the audience agrees with each other, but when the people saw a recent TikTok, they all knew one thing: this is wrong.

The video in question, which has since been deleted, shows accommodation host, Qinisile Dlamini (@ladique), explaining that she and her co-host cancelled a guest's stay at their residence mere hours before the guest was supposed to check-in.

While she intended the video to be funny, she did not get the response she had hoped for.

Instead, her audience thought that it was rude and unprofessional for her to have acted in this way.
