Twitter users are not impressed with the Cape Party's recent campaign stunt involving the "slaughter" of everyone's favourite summer fruit.
The party recently posted a re-enactment of the now famous sheep slaughter which took place on Clifton 4th Beach over December - featuring a watermelon instead.
Last year, activists slaughtered a sheep in what they said was an attempt to cleanse the popular beach of racism, after reports of a security company removing beachgoers.
The small political organisation posted a campaign video on their social media, admonishing racism and animal slaughter.
"We do not slaughter animals and we do not tolerate racism. No. Here in the Cape, we do things differently" Cape Party leader Jack Miller says in the video.
"Capetonians must not take a backward step against this aggressive cultural imperialism which seeks to eradicate our way of life", the party writes on its Facebook page.
The secessionist movement is determined to have the Cape become independent from South Africa to become its own country.
Here's what some South Africans has to say about the campaign stunt on Twitter:
I love Cape Town so much! I'm one of it's biggest advocates. i NEVER thought I would EVER feel as ASHAMED & DISGUSTED to be capetonian as I do 2day. After seeing @capeparty's distasteful video remaking the #ReclaimClifton incident. This proves they know NOTHING about Mzansi!— Shakirah_Sky (@shakirah_sky) January 31, 2019
The Cape Party are having a laugh, right?— Drew Murphy (@murphydrew) January 31, 2019
This is a laughably poor and derivative campaign by the Cape Party, but if you want to get a sense of who these people truly are, read up about their harassment of the artist Dean Hutton.— mr. too damn opinions (@comradesipho) January 31, 2019
These people are violent lunatics.
More like the KKKape Party.https://t.co/QqpQSS92RC https://t.co/m4JnHUzIxA
CapeParty's Jack Miller refers to the Cape's "multi-ethnic culture" and says "unlike other cultures in Southern Africa, here in the Cape we have a different culture. We do not slaughter animals and we do not tolerate racism – no – here in the Cape we do things differently."...🤔— Koketso R Sachane (@KoketsoSachane) January 30, 2019

Meanwhile, a few others seem to have found some humour in the video:
I would've voted for the Cape Party had they sliced an avo instead. That would show me they're serious and well funded.— Solly not solly (@Solly74) January 31, 2019
