Cliff received backlash after he consistently disturbed the young lady from telling her story about how she has to deal with racism on daily basis. The DA leader could also be seen laughing and smiling as the lady was disrespected and embarrassed by Cliff.
“When they try to talk over you and tell you that your experiences as a black woman in South Africa do not matter🤦🏽♀️. Racism is structural and even operates at a municipal level. The literal definition of black lives don’t matter. 💀 https://t.co/i2KcVzjcCd” - @mudzy_r tweeted.
Another Twitter user called Cliff’s behavior unacceptable.
“This is absolutely unacceptable! But what else can one expect from @GarethCliff.. at least he has got us talking about him. As a @NandosSA franchisee, I am going to insist that we distance ourself from him & withdraw as a sponsor of any of his content or platforms. #NoToRacism” - @ReaazAhmed wrote on Twitter.
Nandos did not escape the scandal unscathed as some Twitter user called for the public to distance themselves from the franchise.
“The @NandosSA sponsored RACISM in South Africa in 2021 = Brand Fail! You should have known better than to align urself with Gareth Cliff. Black people are the majority of your customers but instead of supporting content that has positive social impact you rally behind a racist. https://t.co/lA6dDeuaU0” - @khanyi_magubane commented on Twitter.
