Jason Derulo is catching heat from South Africans for his totally strange comment that he made during a concert in South Africa.

According to the Huffington Post, the “Want to Want Me” singer was performing at the ANN7 South African of the Year Awards when he apparently asked the crowd, “Y’all speak English, right?”

Needless to say, South Africans were offended by the remark and took the 26-year-old singer to task on Twitter. Some people called him ignorant, while others returned the favor and disrespected him and his music.

Derulo tried to clarify his comment but the damage was already done. The Twitterverse wasn't having it and continued dragging him on the social networking platform.

One critic wrote, "Jason Derulo asking South Africans if they can speak English? Can he even sing? Let's start there," while another commented, "Jason Derulo needs to leave our country [Africa] right now. How dare he?"
