This tweet at the picture of a glass of red and white wine from winemaker and former rugby player Eddie (Kwagga) Boucher’s winery La Boucher Wines caused a stir on Sunday shortly after the winery posted it on Twitter.
People wrote on Twitter that the tweet was insensitive and demanded an apology. However, the wine estate’s apology afterwards was also not accepted and he was accused of not being sincere.
Shortly after criticism of the controversial controversy began, the estate removed it.
However, Twitter users have already taken a snapshot of the tweet and distributed it on Twitter and Facebook.
La Boucher also deleted their Facebook page on Sunday night after people also commented on the tweet.
La Boucher’s apology reads: “We apologize for any messages on our page that might offend people. Please note that it was never our intention to hurt or offend. “
The estate also says the tweet was immediately removed when it was realized it was offending people.
We apologise for any messages on our page that might have hurt or offended anybody. Please know that it is never our intention to hurt or offend. We immediately removed the content once we noted that it was negatively perceived.— La Boucher Wines (@LaBoucher) June 14, 2020
However, Twitter users were not happy with this and wanted to know, among other things, why La Boucher Wines should first point out that the tweet is unacceptable.
Former Springbok wing Tonderai Chavhanga said in a tweet to Boucher that they have been friends for many years and that he is known for making blaps, and with that tweet he did it again.
