South African WhatsApp users beware

“Adam Catzavelos is facing crimen injuria charges in South Africa and potential prosecution in Greece after sharing a video containing a racial slur on WhatsApp.

The video, where Catzavelos celebrated the absence of black people at his holiday destination in Greece, was shared with a select group of his friends.

One of the people to who he sent the video distributed it and posted it online, which caused Catzavelos to be publicly shamed for his comments and ultimately face criminal charges.”

    Peter is this current ?? This story hit the airwaves last year if I remember correctly. But I guess the warning is generic and can be applied to any post made.

      Hi Dave
      Yes, it did come up some time ago, and it comes up again and again in some form or other.
      I am always amazed at how how many times social media users with a few drinks on board believe themselves to be bullet proof.
