Cape Town – Social media has gone into a frenzy with comments about what should happen to the two accused of forcing a black man into a coffin.

The accused, Willem Oosthuizen and Theo Martins Jackson appeared briefly in the Middelburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday morning (November 16) where the case was postponed to January, 25 2017.

EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said in a statement, “This humiliation can be based on nothing else but his blackness, which means it is in actual fact a humiliation of black people as a whole.”

Ndlozi added that “There is no way that black man would’ve been treated like that except because of the colour of his skin.”

The 20-second video clip has since gone viral on social media and here is how social media reacted to it.
