HOT STUFF:- Watch the FULL video of what happend between Botha, Mallet and Willemse before he walked off set

On Saturday night, after the Lions’ win over the Brumbies, Ashwin Willemse walked off set live on air in an incident that has since gone viral and caused mixed reactions.

Many people, including former Springbok Thando Manana has praised Willemse for his stance. South Africa’s Minister of Sport, Tokozile Xasa, called for the suspension of Nick Mallet and Naas Botha while the investigation is ongoing.

SuperSport has promised a “full investigation” and the clip has gone viral on social media – with opinion clearly split.

What remains unanswered, though is what led Willemse to take such a dramatic stance. The original viral clip contained just his walk off.

Willemse says he was called a “quota player” in the past and refused to be “patronised by two individuals who played in an apartheid / segregated era”.

Willemse went on to say he “can’t work with people who undermine other people” and that he was “glad it happened on live TV so that people can see”.

Since then, an extended version has surfaced – which shows the exchange before Willemse walks off set.

This clip shows Willemse asking Botha his opinion of the game. Botha said it was Willemse’s turn to comment – which he then calls patronising.

Mallet eventually chimes in and when the exchange returns to Willemse, that’s when he makes the decision to raise his grievances.

While none of the panellists involved in the incident have commented on what happened, it is unlikely that it’s just this one specific exchange that led to Willemse being tipped over the edge.

Context is not forthcoming at this point, but it is not unreasonable to assume that frustration has been building up for a long time and that Willemse simply had enough of it this weekend.
