The Smokehouse and Grill restaurant based in Braamfontein CBD has been closed.
The restaurant has been forced to close its doors resulting in the loss of 29 jobs. This comes after the recent racism scandal involving Adam Catzavelos (after a demonstration by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) last week).
TimesLive reports that the EFF invaded the restaurant on Thursday and it is said they threatened The Smokehouse and Grill staff members‚ “even surrounding one manager holding steak knives they had picked up from the restaurant tables”.
Adam Catzavelos’s video using the K-word to refer to black people while at a beach has fueled outrage and went viral on social media.
In a 22-second video shared by Farah Fortune, the man is expressing his joy for not seeing black people on the beach “Let me give you a weather forecast here. Blue skies, beautiful day, amazing sea and not one k^ff^r in sight. F*cking heaven on earth. You cannot beat this…”
“….. and not one K@!##&÷ in sight ” wow… why doesn’t he move there then. Some of you white folks are tiring. pic.twitter.com/pMl3IXPf4F
