In fact, social media users have gone as far as to call for the ban of all Kaizer Chiefs fans at games, and for networks to stop broadcasting the club's games live.

"And some of my followers have the cheek to try and justify these actions. Rather unfollow me. I do not want to be associated with human beings who are prepared to tolerate this behaviour. If this was your mother or sister?", Mike Makaab, the CEO of Prosport international wrote.

Tweeps' reactions followed a horrific incident at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, where the Kaizer Chiefs played against the Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semifinal.

As reported earlier, violence broke out after Kaizer Chiefs fans invaded the pitch, apparently unhappy at their team losing 2-0. Looters took advantage of the situation to make off with various items.

However, they did not stop at looting, fans were filmed brutally attacking a woman, kicking her in the head.

The incident sparked outrage from South Africans, especially well-known South African actor, Rajesh Gopie, who is now in hot water for calling Kaizer Chiefs fans 'Baboons'.
