WATCH | Shots fired! Julius Malema responds to Twitter trolls
EFF leader Julius Malema has hit back at social media users who criticised him after a video surfaced of him allegedly drunk at a party.
Malema claims the video is being used to divert attention away from another video - the sex tape featuring home affairs minister Malusi Gigaba.
"You take a video of Julius Malema dancing, enjoying himself, hoping that dance will replace 'porn star'. Never!"
"We are not playing with ourselves, we are playing music baba!"
Twitter was divided on the video allegedly showing Malema drunk. Some defended him, saying that there was nothing wrong with him being drunk or questioning whether he was drinking alcohol at all.
Others criticised him after he previously claimed he no longer drinks alcohol.
I've watched this 22 second video clip more than 5 times. I honestly do not know just how anyone can from this video deduce that Malema was drunk. Besides, What he picks on that table looks like water. People looking for drama where there ain't any— Mncedisi Siza (@tamnce) October 31, 2018
I guess he didn’t “Do” alcohol ... The alcohol “Did Him”! He doesn’t DO alcohol? Bwah ha ... nothing that leaves his 2kpa lips is truth.— Moira (@poolstaylormade) November 2, 2018
