- The Economic Freedom Fighters are dominating headlines on Monday as it embarks on a protest against Clicks
- Natasha Mazzone, DA Chief Whip, couldn't resist throwing some shade at Floyd Shivambu over his expensive taste in shoes
- Mazzone cheekily praised the Red Beret deputy president for protesting in Prada-clad style
While pretty much everyone agrees that the Clicks advert that sparked all the drama playing out on Monday, not everyone is sure the EFF's reaction is the way to go.
Some feel that placing the employees of over 800 branches nationwide at risk is an overreaction, whilst others are on the ground supporting the movement.
Democratic Alliance Chief Whip Natasha Mazzone couldn't resist taking a jab at EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu, who led protests at the Sandton City branch on Monday.
Mazzone took to social media to sarcastically applaud Floyd for his choice in footwear for the occasion:
"I will say this about Floyd, for a revolutionary, he has great taste in shoes. These Prada loafers are my favourite! It's just so much easier to protest in comfort (and style). From protest to a snazzy lunch out with one removal of the beret. Forward-thinking."
The sassy remarks from Mazzone were met with mixed review by citizens, take a look at just a few below:
@Everjoi1- "But I don't understand people who bash politicians for wearing expensive things. They earn an income and can use it to buy what they want, like all of us."
@b0x_5a- "The most well dressed, well fed and well-groomed people in the country are the politicians repping the interests of people that will never afford to be well dressed, well fed or well-groomed because they have to spend 15% of their money to pay for these political lifestyles."
@Chelsea20185- "While their supporters shop at the Bree taxi rank, he shops at the diamond end of Sandton city."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Clicks had responded to the EFF's threat of protesting over a racially-charged advert regarding African hair.
The company had warned that it would take legal action against the political party if it went through with the protests, which are expected to last all week.
The Red Berets snubbed the warning, telling Clicks and its lawyers to 'go to the nearest hell'.
