- Things are heating up for the man that sent South Africans into a rage with his use of the k-word
- Adam Catzavelos has lost his job at his father's business
- The EFF and the DA has taken steps against Adam and turned to the police and the South African Human Rights Commission
When Adam Catzavelos shared a video of himself on social media in which he uses the k-word, he should have known South Africans would react.
And react they did.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier on how tweeps started a 'manhunt' to find Adam after his video went viral and he has since lost his job.
Now things are about to get even more serious. The Economic Freedom Fighters have taken this matter to the police and the Democratic Alliance turned to the South African Human Rights Commission.
The EFF laid charges against Adam at the Bramley Police Station on Wednesday, giving the police until 5pm on Friday to arrest him or they will resort to picketing at the police station.
The DA announced that the youth branch of the party has laid a complaint at the South African Human Rights Commission.
To add to the list of people taking steps against Adam, radio host Tumi Sole has filed a complaint at the SAHRC as well.
Clearly, South Africans are fed up with racism and desperate for action to be taken against those who insist on using racial slurs.
