EFF national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has come under fire since the weekend following controversial comments made in relation to the South African rugby team.
Following the Springboks' unbelievable triumph at the Rugby World Cup on Saturday, Ndlozi shared a series of unflattering tweets.
Briefly.co.za initially reported on Ndlozi's tweet where he singled out captain Siya Kolisi for praise.
Briefly.co.za then reported on Ndlozi's aggressive response to a journalist following the backlash he received.
Local musician AKA has also weighed in on the debate as he deemed Ndlozi's tweet to be "disgusting".
Briefly.co.za surveyed the reaction to the hit-maker's tweet and thousands were in agreement.
Makau (@ItumelengMakau) was touched by AKA's patriotic nature:
"You know what I like about you @akaworldwide, the fact that you're patriotic."
Seluleko (@mystic_selu) pulled no punches:
"I said the same thing....these guys call themselves leaders of revolution yet they still have the apartheid mentality... It's sick and fvcking childish."
Sbusiso Mabaso (@SjayMabaso) added,
"I had so much respect for him but now aaaaaarghh he is so backward we don't need such people in this country."
Zwelakhe Maphanga (@ZakesPrez) came to the defence of the beleaguered politician:
"People are angry Kernan! People who still live under the poverty line, who still use pit toilets, who still do not have tar roads and clean water, those who couldn't afford to watch the rugby world cup! I understand his anger because he's been around people experiencing such inhumanity."
