Her husband made a video dissing the Springboks during the World Cup and South Africans did not take kindly to it. The woman now claims that even her children are being bullied.

A few weeks ago, Johan de Jonge made a video of himself going on a very passionate anti-Springbok rant. The video went viral and made a lot of South African social media users angry.

In the footage, Johan talks about how bad the team is and how they are no match for their rivals. His wife, Martie, went to Jacaranda FM to share her side of the story.

She has called out the bullying that has resulted from her husband's comments. She said that things are now "out of control" as her family is being harassed.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that the Springboks are headed home and the nation is eagerly awaiting their return as Rugby World Cup champions. In the spirit of celebration, Gautrain has offered supporters a free ride to get in on the action. Certain trips to OR Tambo International Airport will be complementary to ensure citizens get a chance to show the Bokke some love.
