A Tik Tok user’s racist rant went viral after responding to the shooting incident in Muldersdrift. Henrico Barnard, who repeatedly used the K-word and called black people ‘parasites’ released two videos this week, which have since been removed but are still circulating on Twitter.
In these videos, Barnard said he wants to kill black South Africans, adding that he was tempted to drive into a police vehicle or burn down a police station. He went on to say that the police were the K-word and “devils” who “know nothing”.
“Ek is gatvol van hierdie [k-word] van hierdie land (I am tired of these [K-word] of this country,” he expressed, threatening to kill officers who try to arrest him.
He said he was a huge fan of Hitler, and that white South Africans should do to Black South Africans what Hitler did: “We must kill them all, these [k-word] are rubbish, a parasite to humanity,” adding that the same black people deserved to suffer the same fate as the Jews under Nazi reign.
However, on Wednesday, Barnard apologised for his racist rant. “Hi everyone, I, Henrico Barnard, want to apologise for the videos that I posted. It was cruel and I do apologise to each and everyone. I hope you find it in your hearts to forgive. I’m going off social media,” he said.
Barnard’s rant was fuelled by the tragic incident of Len Cloete being shot in the head following a verbal altercation with police officers at a lodge in Muldersdrift, which has stirred the nation since.
