My City Press: Fire Gareth Cliff...Now!

2009-12-16 15:11

IT IS a real shame when people in the public eye say things that

are just so insensitive, out of order and simply callous. Gareth Cliff might be

the shock jock we love for his controversial opinion but his latest tweet is

downright out of order and 5fm needs to take him to task for it.

Cliff tweeted earlier today: “Manto is dead. Good. A selfish and

wicked bungler of the lowest order. Rotten attitude and rancid livers – all

three of them ...” If Phat Joe was fired for his Caster Semenya comment then

Cliff needs to follow suit.

It simply is disgusting!

I am glad I am not the only one who feels this way. I took a look

at other people’s tweets and this is what they said:

“So today we learn

that Gareth Cliff is a complete a#@hole.”

“Can someone really do something about

Gareth Cliff’s comment?.”

“I’m so sad for Mam’ Manto’s family.

Death is so horrible! I pray for their strength through this tough time! Very

disappointed with Gareth Cliff.”

“I am disgusted Gareth Cliff. I

disagreed with Manto – but to rejoice because she is dead!”

“My gosh, Gareth Cliff isn’t afraid to

speak his mind, ne?”

“I think it’s disgusting to say ‘good

riddance’ if someone dies, Gareth.”
