South Africans have reacted to a viral video which showed the Cape Party slamming protesters for slaughtering a sheep.
After the slaughtering of a sheep on Clifton Beach, the Cape Party have done their own "tribute" in Sea Point for a campaign video.
Briefly.co.za gathered the video showed the party talking about racism and the slaughtering of animals before cutting open a watermelon.
Taking to its official Facebook page, the party shared the video along with the caption: "Following the shocking slaughter of a sheep on Clifton 4th Beach last month, the CAPE PARTY's response to EFF radicals was this age old Cape tradition.Capetonians must not take a backward step against this aggressive cultural imperialism which seeks to eradicate our way of life."
South Africans have since responded to the video and we took a look at some of the reactions social media users had to the footage.
Malaiša Jr Mohlala wrote: "Don't watermelons have rights too? Hypocrisy at it's best."
Shakirah Sky Dramat added: "This proves nothing except that this is a racist and elitist party! I'm actually disgusted and at this point, I think less of you than I think of the DA and that's pretty damn low!!! This ad makes me feel ashamed to be a capetownian."
Roy Harris wrote: "Cape Party, after this symbolic slaughtering, symbolizing the Cape with fruit, a knife not to barbarically kill, but to divide and share the sweet fruit of our labor, you HAVE MY VOTE, I promise!"
