A South African man has been given a suspended sentence after making a racist slur in a video widely shared on social media.
Adam Catzavelos filmed himself on a beach while on holiday in Greece, saying it was “heaven on earth” as there were no black people there.
He said a derogatory term used historically by white people to denigrate black South Africans.
The hashtag #AdamCatzavelos began trending in the country in August 2018 when the video went viral on social media. As a result, he was even sacked from his family business which made condiments.
Should he commit another similar crime, Catzavelos would get a fine of 50,000 rand ($3,178; £2,487) or would have to serve a two-year jail sentence.
