  • SA economist Chris Hart is getting slammed again for another controversial tweet [PIC]
    Posted by on Jun 29th, 2016

    Remember Chris Hart, the economist who quit his job at Standard Bank after he posted a controversial tweet that many deemed racist. He received serious criticism in January for tweeting “More than 25 years after Apartheid ended, the victims are increasing along with a sense of entitlement and hatred towards minorities…”. Well it seems like Hart hasn’t learned and is back in the social media spotlight for comparing the market reaction to the Brexit vote to that of a battered wife.

    Here’s what he posted on Twitter.

    That analogy clearly wasn’t well received. Here’s a snapshot of the comment responses.

    The different reactions of England and Iceland commentators when Iceland scored yesterday [VIDEO]
    Posted by on Jun 28th, 2016

    If you’re a football fan then you will definitely have heard that England were knocked out of the Euro 2016 tournament by massive underdogs Iceland. The English were sent back home following the 2-1 defeat, but it’s the Iceland commentator that has been making headlines with his over emotional reaction when his team scored. The complete opposite of England’s Steve McClaren who was giving his analysis on the game in studio saying how much the English were dominating when Iceland scored the winner.

    This was his reaction.


    Now compare that to Iceland commentator, Gudmundur Benediktsson, who completely lost his sh*t when they scored the winning goal.

    Here’s another video of him screaming like a girl when the final whistle blew.
