If Isidingo wanted controversy, it sure got it! The SABC3 soapie seems to have drawn inspiration for their recent storyline from the ongoing Oscar Pistorius case, and it has viewers crying foul.

The paralympian is currently on trial for shooting girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a locked door four times. So when character Bradley Haines shoots his dad Albert through a door, four times, viewers immediately took to social media to relay their disgust at the current storyline.

Viewers saw this coming when the character was introduced as a sports star who has anger issues and an obsession with guns.

They were, however, angered by the shooting scene, saying the show had taken it a step too far. "No, Isidingo... No. I do not agree with what you are trying to do here. it is sick and you should know better than following this storyline... I am extremely disappointed and there is NOTHING you can say to justify this storyline. Oscar's courtcase is not done yet and here you are... cashing in on another man's pain... Sick!", said one of their Facebook followers Danielle van Wyk.

  Actor Izak Davel took to Twitter this morning and it appears he doesn't see any issues with the show's storyline.

 

The show's management has yet to release a statement and were unavailable for comment.
