Durban - Famous South African DJ Black Coffee felt the brunt from Twitter after he performed in Tel Aviv.
Tweeps, including political figures from South Africa, ripped Black Coffee to shreds for performing in Israel.
South Africa’s isolation and the Academic & Cultural boycott are part of the reasons Apartheid capitulated to the call for freedom. It is morally & politically insensitive for DJ Black Coffee to just go on partying in Apartheid Israel, whilst it kills & oppresses innocent people.— Floyd Shivambu (@FloydShivambu) April 2, 2018
On Monday Black Coffee was the number one trend on Twitter and South Africans were were angry that a few hours before his performance, Israeli snipers shot and killed over 15 young unarmed Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, said Kwara Kekana, Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel in South Africa (BDS).
“The human rights and Palestine solidarity organisation BDS South Africa joins fellow South Africans in expressing our disappointment in DJ Black Coffee's decision to, once again, perform in Tel Aviv in violation of the cultural boycott of Israel,” said Kekana.
Following Tweeps disagreeing with Black Coffee’s decision to perform in Israel, he defended his decision by saying he went there “to feed my family”.
Like everyone else I have rights and free will and no Black Coffee is not a political party...I work as an entertainer to feed my Family.— #PIECESOFME (@RealBlackCoffee) April 2, 2018
To sum it up....I'll take a bullet for my Family.
