The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has been protesting Clicks this week following a cultural insensitive advertisement that dubbed African hair 'dry and damaged.'

However, anyone and everyone who tried to spread positivity following the drama found themselves in the Red Berets' line of fire - including Professor Thuli Madonsela.

Professor Thuli Madonsela recently voiced her support of those spreading positivity in response to the Clicks saga. Madonsela voiced her approval for the 'most cerebral' response to the ordeal in her opinion and she came under fire for it.

Ndlozi apologises for comment: 'Merely touching her is not harassment'

Briefly.co.za reported her opinion irked EFF member Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, who responded to Madonsela's comments with venom.

The former EFF spokesperon told Madonsela to "find the nearest hell" and he waited for her to respond.

Julius Malema also reacted to Madonsela's post, asking her if she calls a "peaceful protest" anarchy.

The former public protector responded to Juju's post with:

"Are the words you used to call for the #Clicks protest, a call for peaceful protest sir?Is stoping people from using their right to buy wherever they want an act of peace? Is preventing people from working and getting their meds peaceful? What peace is that sir? "

Her post once again sparked a reaction from Ndlozi who wrote:

"Constitutionally protected peaceful PROTEST!"

South Africans did not agree with Ndlozi that the protests were peaceful and they gave their two cents' worth in the comment section.

Social media user, @AdvNgcukaitobi, wrote:

"But the Constitution also promote Property rights. Your party infringed the rights of not only #Clicks stores which y'all damaged but also Mall where some areas were damaged. Other people were denied the right to movement."

Another tweep, @MulugisiM, added:

"Humble yourself and apologise for the damage caused by your party, akere that's what you forcefully demand of others when they are wrong."

Twitter user, @southy_citizen, wrote:

"The constitution does not make provisions for destroying and petrol bombing private property. Even restricting someone’s access to private property I against the constitution... just admit that you have no control over the criminal elements of your party."

On Monday, Briefly.co.za reported that hours into the protest, at least two Clicks stores in Gauteng were petrol-bombed.

Following the violence during the protests, the Gauteng High Court has granted Clicks an interdict effectively preventing the Economic Freedom Fighters from halting its operations amid threats of a week-long protest.

The matter ordered the EFF leader Julius Malema and other high-ranking party officials to cease attempts to stop numerous Clicks branches from opening.

The interdict bars the EFF from intimidating and threatening employees working at stores as well as customers intending to shop at any of the branches.
