- South Africans are fed up with EFF leader Julius Malema after he called for his followers to "attack" Clicks
- The hashtag #VoetsekMalema started trending on Twitter last night and is still trending now
- The 39-year-old is being dragged via tweets aimed at him with a simple hashtag
After this weekend's incident with Clicks South Africa, EFF leader Julius Malema called for action in the form of a tweet. Juju protested the fact that Clicks posted an ad for a haircare company in which it displays various types of hair.
In the ad, the hair of a woman of African descent is portrayed as "dry and damaged". Clicks has since released an apology. This did not stop Juju from asking EFF supporters to "attack" the store in a tweet.
This has caused many social media users to start the hashtag #VoetsekMalema. Twitter users have voiced many concerns through this hashtag and it has been trending since this morning with more people constantly joining in.
Briefly.co.za looked through the hashtag #VoetsekMalema and compiled a few of the top tweets.
"Why aren't you fuming and attacking TRESemmé and Unilever who created the actual advert. #VoetsekEFF #VoetsekMalema"
"Click should be boycotted for its careless racism but also for giving the EFF relevance, before this the EFF was going down hard but because of this they have something to hold onto. #VoetsekEFF #VoetsekMalema"
"Let’s go #VoetsekMalema and if you’re down with Malema #VoetsekEFF to you too!!"
