Eusebius McKaiser speaks to Nic Catzavelos about his brother Adam Catzavelos actions that sparked a racial debate in the country.

The brother of Adam Catzavelos, the man who shared a video using the k-word to described black people while on a beach, says the last time his brother had used the k-word was four months ago.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Nic Catzavelos who is the elder brother to Adam says he is embarrassed by his brother's actions.

He says that his parents actually left the country after the incident and Adam has not yet returned to South Africa.

The first thing that occurred to me was who the hell would be sitting on a beach in paradise making a video like this. I actually could not believe what I was seeing.

Nic Catzavelos, brother of Adam Catzavelos

I was horrified, I don't really know what else to say.

It's disturbing, to say the least. I was really surprised. It's not language that is generally used. It's not a word that I hear often anymore.

Nic Catzavelos, brother of Adam Catzavelos

My brother is certainly not a white supremacist, my brother doesn't sit and speak around race on a regular basis. To be quite honest he's not that interested politically. I think he is a multifaceted person.

ALSO: Adam Catzavelos apologises for racist video

I think he doesn't come from a family of hardcore racists.

Nic Catzavelos, brother of Adam Catzavelos

For me to say that he is a racist unequivocally, I find that very hard. Although I would say that there is racism within him.

If you want me to say that my brother is a racist, he is a racist based on what he has done; I can't deny that.
