Briefly.co.za takes a look at some of the reactions from some of our fave entertainers who have strongly condemned the incident.
The radio and TV presenter said the behaviour of the officers was "despicable".
"@SAHRCommission what is happening here is despicable to say the least. To strip someone of their dignity in the name of carrying out orders should never be condoned. This is disgusting at every level."

The rapper expressed disgust at the way the officers handled themselves during the eviction.
"Hold the f*ck on!!! They couldn’t just let him grab some pants quickly?? What is going on here???"
The veteran radio presenter and club DJ couldn't believe the way the officers behaved during the eviction.
"Dear @CityofCT: What the actual f***????"
The actress reacted with broken heart emojis when she saw the video.
"Noooo," she added.
Briefly.co.za has reported that the four officers who were involved in the eviction of the man are to be suspended.
In a statement issued by the city on Wednesday night, it claimed it was in the process of suspending and applying disciplinary procedures against the four officials.
"We are in the process of suspending four staff members involved in the incident pending the outcome of the investigation."
Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Lindiwe Sisulu condemned the 'distasteful incident' and asked the Western Cape government to hold those implicated accountable.
