A couple of our local celebrities have succeeded in instilling bad images in the public's mind.
Their contentious reputations have landed them on the list of the most loathed South African celebrities, whether it's due of what they say on social media or how they treat fans and other celebrities. Check out who made the cut on the list below.
4. Gareth Cliff
He's notorious for making provocative statements without apologizing, such as questioning the government's role in paying for Meyiwa's burial, referring to a female caller on the radio as a bitch, and defending Sparrow's racist remark under the pretense of "free expression."
The contentious poet, musician, beadwork artist, and event planner is known for instigating conflicts and voicing unabashed, loud ideas, the most recent of which was an attack on black women wearing weaves.
The poetess was aggressively targeted on social media, ruffling a few feathers, but she remained unmoved by the hostility. She suggested anybody who disagreed with her to block her instead.
2. Kelly Khumalo
She was named Best Female Artist at the 19th South African Music Awards in Sun City in May 2013. Meyiwa Senzo, her companion, was shot and died in Vosloorus during a robbery at her home on October 26, 2014, and this singer hasn't taken a vacation since.
1. Oscar Pistorius
For the rest of his life, Oscar will almost definitely be the most loathed celebrity (or ex star) in South Africa.
