Only recently the post gathered a lot of attention and tweeps hauled him over the coals because of it.

Siphamandla wrote, "Julius Malema is a disgrace to South Africa. These vile and racist comments directed towards Jewish people is unacceptable. He belongs to the same WhatsApp group as Adam Catzavelo. Injustice somewhere is a threat to justice everywhere - Martin Luther King Jnr."
Joan Tozer, who goes by the Twitter handle @TozerJoani, added: "A despicable individual in every sense of the word! The polar opposite of Madiba who had every reason to be a ranting racist. But no ...he who has not suffered at all has the audacity to call the shots! Adversity breeds character! Need I say more!"
Quasimodo, @africandarter, wrote: "The wheel of life never stops turning. Even for you brother. When it happens, I’ll be there to remind you."
