JOHANNESBURG – Social media has reacted with shock and anger to a video and images of six white men assaulting a black couple at a KFC in Montana, north of Pretoria.
The video has been shared on Facebook and Twitter since on Friday and has since gone viral
The couple apparently requested for the driver of the vehicle in front of them to move forward in the drive-through.
In the video, two white men can be seen advancing towards a woman who is heard pleading for them not to assault her husband.
The men can be heard saying they would beat her as well after that she screams for help as the men towered over her.
According to the post, two of the six men have already been arrested with another two still in hiding.
