Actor and EFF member Fana Mokoena landed in hot water when he condemned the alleged abuse of Babes Wodumo, without naming Mampintsha, the alleged abuser.

Mokoena reacted along with thousands of South Africans who took to Twitter to express their anger and shock at the alleged incident.

Immediately after his tweet, people fired questions about how come he named Babes but not Mampintsha, with some asking if he has forgotten his name.

Justifying this, he said he is a "lawmaker" and therefore there are things he cannot do "out of anger".

Here are some of the reactions from unimpressed Tweeps:

Mokoena has since backtracked following the backlash and has named Mampintsha in his latest tweets.
