John Jeffrey, Deputy minister of justice and constitutional development, decided to address the video, pointing out the reason it can't possibly be of South Africans.

Here's what some South Africans had to say about the video:

@blaqdegree - This is an edited clip of shooting club in america. The video is a lead to division by people that have no love for south africa
@DiscoGnu - Dude, this is quite clearly spliced together videos of American hillbillies not South African right-wingers.
@Mikobear - Agreed there is no braai fire in sight.. It can't be here
