Too late for Dianne Kohler Barnard! True colours outed? 😆 pic.twitter.com/YVLdJNpysE

The DA leader has apologised claiming she didn't read the post all the way through while the author says it was an attempt at satire.

But there are now calls for Kohler Barnard to be fired while the online storm over her actions continues.

Kohler Barnard says all she can do is apologise again.

"I've never done something as stupid but now I must reap the hurricane and I must face up to the consequences of what I have done."

Pushed on whether she should resign, Kohler Barnard says she has considered it.

"I have spoken to various people and said if that's what I need to do and they said I should wait for the disciplinary hearing."

LISTEN: Dianne Kohler Barnard says she was stupid.
