The initial tweet was shared by user, @ShaunAugust1, who vocalised his dissatisfaction at a comment made by Dianne Kohler Barnard of the Democratic Alliance.

The original tweet poked fun at a black political leader – his photo showed visible gaps in between his teeth. To which Barnard commented, “Mind the Gap”.

User @ShaunAugust1 cited her comment as racist, but user @RenaldoGouws took exception.

He sarcastically commented that it seems all white people in the world have perfect teeth.

Tweeps @glanza_66 and @haiko_niewoudt disagreed with the racist label.

User @Snington jokingly suggested to go to England to check its citizens’ teeth.

However, not everyone saw the funny side as user, @Politickling_SA, pointed out.
