Billionaire Johann Rupert has caused a stir on social media following his comments on the state of South Africa's economy and black youth in South Africa during PowerFM Chairman's Conversation in Johannesburg on Tuesday.
He made comments suggesting that young black people spend their money on BMWs, clubbing and added that they never save what they earn.
Callers on The Eusebius McKaiser Show had different views on the billionaire's comments.
A caller, Phala, says he has witnessed Rupert speak before a mainly white audience and his demeanour was very arrogant.
He says much of the PowerFM radio audience listening to the Rupert interview were black and therefore perceived what he said as racist.
Caller Keamogetswe says she was disappointed that Rupert's stance on land reform.
No research was done; the usual brazen rhetoric about an irresponsible decision on the part of government; focusing purely on corruption and how the poor farmers who worked so hard are just going to have nothing in the end. Which is totally untrue because land reform looks at the urban and rural areas as well.— Keamogetswe, caller
