Nic Catzavelos opened up about his brother's racism on a recent interview on the Eusebius McKaiser Show.
According to the brother of Adam Catzavelos, who has been dubbed a racist after a video went viral of him using the k-word, said their family has been torn apart over his racial slurs.
Nic admitted his brother had "racism within him" but added he was not a white supremacist who sat and talked about race regularly, Eyewitness News reported.
"To be quite honest he's not that interested politically. I think he is a multifaceted person," he was quoted saying.
Briefly.co.za learned Nic added his entire family felt the heavy burden of his brother's racist video, and his parents even travelled overseas following the footage making headlines in SA.
"My parents left to go overseas yesterday, my father and myself barely said goodbye. I grew up in a family where we look after each other and it is very difficult for me," he told Eusebius McKaiser.
Nic said he found it difficult to dub his brother a racist, but added there is without a doubt racism in him.
However, some social media users did not buy Nic's interview, adding he was just as his brother.
Kabelo Komana Mahlo, who goes by the Twitter handle @Kabelo_Komana, wrote: "We can't expect two people raised by the same folks and society to turn out different. Clearly they're all racist."
