Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show debate Bianca Schoombee's tweets, apology and her Miss SA withdrawal.

Miss South Africa 2020 hopeful Bianca Schoombee has pulled her entry for the pageant following outrage on Twitter over her offensive tweets from six years ago.

Schoombee has apologised for her tweets, stating that they were shared when she was still a teenager and that she had since changed.

However, people on social media and the Eusebius McKaiser Show just weren't buying it.

If you want to represent South Africa you should sow unity. People always have to be careful about what they put on social media.

Malebedi, Caller

I think I should forgive her because she has forgiven herself. Who am I as a black person to now invalidate that? I have to forgive here. I think she is angry that her tweets were dug up, not what was said.

Mpumi, Caller

Racism is like cancer, it's traumatising.

Pinky, Caller

Bianca doesn't regret what she said, she regrets how it came up. You can't turn a new leaf and carry the past with you.

Lindsey, Caller

I think we focus more on forgiveness and all these things that go with forgiveness. I don't agree with this notion that racists must go to black townships.

Thabiso, Caller

Other callers say she should be given a chance.

I think she wasn't aware of what impact this would have, she was doing this to impress friends. I think she should be given a chance but she must work hard to prove she has changed.

Terrence, Caller
