DJ Cleo shades homeless family - 'Their priorities seem skewed'
While several Twitter users were doing the most to try to help a family who had been kicked out onto the street, DJ Cleo questioned their plight and suggested that their prioritises may be skewed because they were wearing designer clothing.
A Twitter user took to the platform on Tuesday to detail how a woman and her four children had been locked out of their home by their landlord for apparently not paying rent for three months.
I have a situation here , there is this woman with her 4 children , I find them crying next to the Groote Schuur Hospital, then I tried to find out as to what is happening and then I found out that the Landlord locked them out this morning as they are owing 3 months rent .

While some of the man's followers offered to assist and were eventually able to get the family back home "safe and sound", Cleo noticed the family's designer threads and pointed it out.
Cleo praised the man for assisting the family but said he was worried that their priorities may be "skewed" if they were sporting designer takkies but couldn't afford rent.
Not to be insensitive: but her #Priorities seem skewed. Judging how they’re all wearing #Nike which comes at a heftier price than a lot of other products that serve the same purpose. (Moipolai ha a llelwe)— www.djcleo.co.za (@djcleo1) October 3, 2018

Tbo Touch was last year criticised for making comments about homeless people, claiming the only difference between a homeless person and himself was their "mental disposition".
"The only difference between the guy I just drove past begging in streets and myself is our mental disposition. Let’s change how we think," he tweeted.
