"You used to beat up your wife, we are not surprised" SA responds to Patrick Shai's apology

"You used to beat up your wife, we are not surprised" SA responds to Patrick Shai's apology

While you're here, please follow me.

Patrick Shai, a retired actor and spokesman of a campaign against GBV by means of healing the perpetrators, left South Africans in awe yesterday. He took a video with 8 people who claimed to be his boxing team, and they all called Cassper Nyovest a son of a B who deserved to be beaten up by a real boxer. Patrick Shai even took a separate video swearing Cassper's mother and challenging Cassper to a boxing match before he dies. He said "I want to face you in the ring so my tombstone can be written that I'm the one who beat you up in the boxing ring"

I think that the old man wanted to trend and he's noticed that using Cassper's name is the quickest way for anyone to trend. To name call Cassper was not only distasteful but served as a tool to undo the little good work he was doing to rehabilitate his image, as he was once known as a narcissistic wife beater. The way it was easy for him to just hurl insults at a man with who he's never crossed paths with shows that he's still the same man he claims not to be.

This morning, he posted an apology for his trending video and said that as an old man, "I should have known better than to insult your mom." He apologetically added that a match that would have been a good sport has now been spoiled by his manner of speaking. The only reason he is apologizing is that everyone dug up his past and dragged him back to that horrible place. Comments such as "This man used to beat up his wife, I'm not even shocked by the way he behaves" left by @LucasMfundo must have made him realize that he is jeopardizing his reputation for clout.

@casspernyovest retweeted the apology and wrote, "These are some weird times. When everyone runs of out of ideas to trend, they just think "Cassper Nyovest'"

Thoughts? Is it fair to bring up Patrick's past because of what he said?
