DJ Warras let it be known that he will not let anyone on Twitter intimidate him into not giving his opinion on matters of national importance.
This after the Gagasi FM radio host was dragged for saying he's against child grants.
After deleting his initial tweet, Warras doubled down by saying that he has a right to voice his opinion.

He wrote, "I appreciate that I could've articulated my point better as much as I appreciate that to voice one's opinion, as a citizen and tax payer, is to also risk offence. I do not agree that this disqualifies me from having an opinion."
Warras continued, "I hope we can continue to engage each other in debate, without subjecting each other to a fallism culture that essentially stifles debate. It doesn't work anyway. I won't fall. I will be fine. Twitter doesn't dictate my life and shouldn't dictate yours."
Yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that Warras' tweet disparaging child grants resulted in #DJWarrasMustFall trending.
Warras deleted the offensive tweet that called child grants a "s*** plan."
The presenter said he just didn't want absent fathers thinking it was okay to not contribute financially just because government would take care of their kids.
