South African Actor Calls Black People Baboons After Moses Mabhida Stadium Violence

Rajesh Gopie is in hot water after racist Facebook post.

On Saturday evening, at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, Kaizer Chiefs lost 2-0 to Free State in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals. This led to Chiefs fans getting violent, vandalizing stadium property and broadcasting equipment.

A graphic video of Chiefs fans assaulting a security guard made rounds on social media. 18 people have been reported to be injured from the incident.

South African theatre actor Rajesh Gopie, just like most of us, wasn't impressed by the actions of the Chiefs fans. He took to his Facebook to condemn the incident, in a way that, well, actually didn't help.


Gopie posted: "Yah, and the Baboons like soccer too much so they want to play with human heads." He deleted the post after the inevitable backlash in the comments section.

He told The MercuryThe Mercury: "I was very enraged when I saw what they had done to that lady."

Gopie has since deleted the post. As expected, Black Twitter responded.
