DJ Fresh has been accused of celebrating "more dying people" amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The veteran radio personality took to social media to share with his fans that he chose to celebrate "The New Yeah" by going to a fast food outlet to grab himself a meal.
The star referred to the beginning of Level 3 lockdown on 1 June as the new year and a troll decided to be his party-pooper.
"I don’t drink at home, so this is the only way I can celebrate The New YEAH!!!! #Level3."
Then social media user, @RitaDee61798268, replied:
"But the virus is still out there spreading and you calling it a new year to celebrate more dying people."
The Big Dawg, as he is affectionately known by many, was quick to tell his hater where to get off.
"I choose to celebrate and appreciate whatever new liberties we get... No matter how incremental!! Just like you are exercising your right to be a #Sourpuss!! I wish you could do it on somebody else’s timeline!!"

The multi-award winning DJ further explained that he was in a celebratory mood because it was his first junk meal in two months.
Fresh's fans also came to his defense.
"Lol RitaDee loves attention shame. I hope you're good Fresh enjoy your Mcfeast my brother."
"Sesiwe, please leave us with our Fresh DJ."
"Next time Fresh, do not respond to such, leave them to us, we want them Fresh."
Briefly.co.za recently reported that Fresh reflected on quitting his law degree for a radio career when he bagged the best afternoon drive presenter award at The Radio Awards 2020’s virtual ceremony.
