#JohannRupert caused a stir on Twitter after his comments on people’s lifestyles and how to spend their money wisely instead of patronising bars and buying cars. His reputation as the person who brought the country the World Cup in 2010 was also referred to on Twitter
@AdvNgcukaitobi #JohannRupert spoke a bitter hard truth that many disgruntled black people cannot swallow. We are quick to cry racism when the truth is uttered by a white man. Black people are their own worst enemy to progress and emancipation.
@zibusiso431 There was no Taboo then. His generation frequents international holidays and gentlemen’s clubs overseas while their madams frequent the Queen’s Plate in London!
@SisThobs He spoke the honest truth that is obvious to all. At some point we need to reflect people and deal with reality. Many of our politicians care only for their wants, same with tenderpreneurs – at the end still no jobs or wealth created.
@Cri3D_W0LF They call him arrogant because he hit the nail on the head! EFF cannot comprehend truth and therefore will destroy and make up BS that suits them. The man is right, you can’t handle the truth. Yet 30% make noise because the truth hurts.
@KATERLLIAH Dear black people. Not everything is about racism. If you listen carefully and analyse things before commenting, you’ll learn something which will improve your way of thinking or of seeing things. #JohannRupert
@supremebeing_m (I’m open to correction) but the 2010 World Cup to ordinary citizens was like a big event hosted at Taboo on a working night. Great but not beneficial. Anticlimax.
@LawrenceTM22 He was telling the truth, most of our black people live a fake life of opulence while drowning in poverty. I am not offended at all.
@BlawaEntertain1 Rupert’s families go on international holidays. Is that not spending?
@ZandiileL That World Cup didn’t benefit us ordinary citizens in any way. You can’t be expecting us to put up with Rupert’s condescending attitude.
@Vusi7_48253 It is true what Rupert was saying. Let us not shy away from the truth.
@TKJimgmailcom1 Sometimes we get so negative to such an extent that we don’t even see the good that’s been done to our country.
@MbalulaFikileRupert is one person who contributed immensely in bringing us a World Cup. If it was not covered in this interview it will be grave injustice.
@ThulaniMgabhiScorn aside, there is some truth in his utterances with regard to our propensity to consume against our propensity to save. Let’s take it like men.
