Social media users wasted no time in tracking down the two teenagers responsible for the racist display. Erhard and a female participant, whose identity remains undisclosed, were caught on camera casually using the derogatory term.

Sonwabile, taken aback by the encounter, tried to maintain his composure and expressed his disappointment at the use of such language.

It is disheartening that in 2023, we are still grappling with incidents of racism. The incident has sparked a significant backlash, and Erhard, realizing the extent of the anger he had provoked, promptly went dark on social media.

Surprisingly, the school itself also chose to limit access to its social media comments, further fueling the controversy.

As of now, Hoërskool Ben Vorster has not released a public statement regarding the incident involving one of its students. Despite attempts to obtain a comment from the Tzaneen-based secondary school, no response was received at the time of publishing this article.
