As expected, tweeps got busy in the comments. Leaving followers are left feeling unsure about the celebs statement.
"How do you put politics aside in a political matter?"
"You can give credit without saying 'politics aside', or you don't want to upset someone?"
"They have no stalwarts so who else were they going to name it after..."
"This is top tier. That's the tweet. That politics aside is unnecessary... You guys when it comes to @Julius_S_Malema or EFF, you always want to come across like there's someone you don't want to upset."
Euphonik under fire for comments on feminism: "You're embarrassing"
Briefly News reported DJ Euphonik came under fire for his comments on feminism. The musician took to Twitter on Tuesday, 16 February to share his opinion after he and DJ Fresh's rape case was thrown out of court due to lack of sufficient evidence.
A woman recently accused Euphonik and DJ Fresh of drugging and sexually assaulting her back when she was still a student.
The National Prosecuting Authority confirmed on Tuesday that it had decided not to prosecute in the rape case.
An excited Euphonik took to the micro-blogging app and posted:
"Shout out to the toxic feminist brigade who are conscious liars and delusionists that don’t know the difference between fact or fiction. You can’t rape someone you’ve never met and don’t know. No matter how much you want to believe it it won’t make it true."
He was responding to the hate that both he and Fresh received from tweeps who called them out after the woman made the allegations. The star's tweet rubbed many the wrong way.
