- The EFF's Julius Malema's behaviour and responses at the Clicks protests which he has been at the forefront of have left Mzansi in stitches
- The store recently came under fire for a controversial ad in which they called black hair "dry and damaged"
- Tweeps were more focused on Juju's reactions during the protests, taking the time to make jokes online
Julius Malema has become a source of entertainment during the Clicks protests. Malema, who has placed himself and his party, the EFF, at the forefront of the whole debacle, seems to have the most hilarious clap-backs to interview questions.
While many people took the controversial TRESSemmé ad in which they called a black woman with a kinky afro's hair, "dry and damaged" seriously, they also found the humour in Malema's quick-witted responses.
In one short clip, Malema can be heard telling people who questioned his silence on PPE scandals to go to hell. While in another, he can be heard saying that they are fighting against Clicks and not Shoprite and Checkers, according to him, "Their day will come."
View the clips uploaded by tweeps who found most of the things the leader of the Red Berets were saying hilarious.
Here are a few of the comments made by intrigued tweeps witnessing the action that was taking place at Mall of the North.
"Some people collect their chronic medication from Clicks. Where will they collect it? Or are they also “collateral damage like the employees?" Not funny."
While @Bobo04287936 said:
"Stupid man Malema, running around like a headless chicken claiming that his doing it in goodness. I'm saddened by this because people job is in the line here Malema is not feeling the heat it us ordinary people who will be out of jobs."
Others simply quoted the clips which have been recirculating exponentially on Twitter, with laughing out loud emojis.
Briefly.co.za also reported that the EFF had pledged to embark on a week-long national protest outside of over 880 branches:
"We, therefore, call on all Clicks branches to close and must only open on 12 September. This is because we are of the view that they are not genuine with their apology and the only way to make capitalists apologise and feel genuine remorse is for them to lose money. If Clicks does not close, our members in all branches will shut down all 880 Clicks outlets across the country."
Lawyers for the company had warned against shutting stores down, highlighting that an apology had been issued in the wake of the scandal. Nevertheless, the EFF remains as determined as ever to ensure revenge for the offence responding to the lawyers in a statement:
"Your racist lawyers of Pravin Jamnandas Gordhan, and your racist client Clicks can go to the nearest hell. Black dignity or death, we shall overcome."
