Rapper Emtee slammed for 'tasteless tweet'
The rapper was slammed after he implied in a tweet that racism was not relevant.
CAPE TOWN - Several Twitter users have slammed Mthembeni Ndevu, or Emtee as he is known, for his comments on racism in South Africa.
Earlier this morning, the rapper posted a tweet that triggered angry responses from Twitter users.
It's understood Emtee, who deleted the tweet, posted it in response to discussions about Penny Sparrow.
Sparrow was heavily criticised after she referred to black people as monkeys on social media on Saturday.

What Emtee is doing is no different to what minority racists do. Delegitimizing the effects of racism and apartheid. We won't stand 4 that
