LISTEN: Gareth Cliff says he will not be bullied on Twitter

07 January, 02:46 PM

Admitting his comments on free speech after the Penny Sparrow race row were ill timed, radio personality Gareth Cliff maintained he is not a racist.

"I am very disappointed how this agenda has been hijacked by an angry mob on Twitter," he said.

Asked to give his comment on what was behind these sporadic race debates, Cliff said: "I think this is an ugly situation. It's a conversation we absolutely need to have, but I believe it has gotten out of control. It's not everybody in SA. It's everybody on social media."
