Social media reacts to Oscar in nightclub altercation

2014-07-15 09:36

Social media has reacted to claims that Oscar Pistorius has reportedly been involved in a nightclub altercation. WATCH

Johannesburg - Reeva Steenkamp's close friend, Gina Myers, was at the club which Oscar Pistorius visited on Saturday night, according to a report.

Beeld reported that Myers was attending a superhero costume party at The VIP Room in Sandton.

Myers can be seen partying in a Catwoman suit in the club's photos.

It is unclear whether she and Pistorius, who is on trial for murdering Steenkamp in February last year, crossed paths.

Pistorius was involved in an altercation with Jared Mortimer at the club, according to reports.

Mortimer claimed that Pistorius was drunk and insulted President Jacob Zuma's family. However, Pistorius's spokesperson said Mortimer had been aggressive and had questioned him on his murder trial. Pistorius allegedly poked Mortimer in the chest and when Mortimer shoved him back, Pistorius fell, according to accounts.

Pistorius's family later said that Mortimer was casting himself as the victim, and seeking attention. Pistorius apparently regretted having gone to the club.

The altercation will reportedly not affect Pistorius's murder trial, which will resume for closing arguments on 7 August 2014.
