CAPE TOWN - Retailer, Woolworths says it’s unfazed by protests against R&B star, Pharrell Williams.

Pro-Palestinian group Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions demonstrated at the singer’s Cape Town concert on Monday.

They object to Williams&39; support for Woolworths, which stocks some Israeli products.

The retailers says it respects BDS’s views, but that its relationship with Williams is apolitical.
