- Julius Malema trended on social media on Monday for all the wrong reasons
- #JuliusMustFall trended on Twitter and Saffas held nothing back with their views
- However, Tito Mboweni showed his "brother" support in a now-deleted tweet
On Sunday, Briefly.co.za reported DJ Shimza came under fire for being rude to an upcoming DJ who wanted to feature on his lockdown virtual session.
Although he later apologised, many South Africans did not accept his apology and #ShimzaMustFall was trending on Twitter.
Julius Malema was among those who stood up for DJ Shimza and it did not sit well with Mzansi social media users either.
In fact, Saffas turned their wrath on Juju and soon #JuliusMustFall then trended on Twitter. Social media users held nothing back in their tweets and some even found it poetic that #JuliusMustFall trended on Jacob Zuma's birthday.
However, the hashtag spilled over to Monday.
In a now deleted tweet, Tito Mboweni called out South Africans for being to harsh on Malema.
"Leave my homeboy @Julius_S_Malema alone! He just expressed an opinion. What is democracy about? Hayibo!"
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Ntsiki Mazwai, as always, has jumped in to have her say. Social media went cray over the weekend over the whole #ShimzaMustFall and #JuliusMustFall trends, and Ntsiki couldn’t help herself.
One thing everyone knows about Ntsiki is that sis has no filter and is totally unapologetically cutthroat.
Ntsiki believes that Julius uses women in the EFF to gain political backing and fight his battles.
