In a statement AfriForum highlighted MultiChoice's decision to stop airing content featuring Steve Hofmeyr on all of its platforms because it was "committed to the building of a non-racial society and strongly condemns any acts of discrimination." They called for the same for Ntsiki, who they described as a "divisive figure."

The organisation claimed Ntsiki "regularly publishes racist and inciting comments against minorities on social media."

Ntsiki promptly clapped back by tweeting "Hands off Ntsiki Mazwai!" and then denied being a racist.

"I am tired of being bullied because it is inappropriate to be a strong black girl. I am definitely not racist... not by a long shot"

She went on to add that her role is to help white people confront how they hurt black people.
