The Burning Platformhas been met with sharp reaction online. In a recent interview on the show between Cliff, DA leader John Steenhuisen and One SA Movement spokesperson Mudzuli Rakhivhane, Cliff dismissed racism struggles as “anecdotal” and “unimportant”.

“Your personal experiences are completely anecdotal and unimportant to all of us, sorry,” Cliff told Rakhivhane.The fast food chain terminated its sponsorship of the show with immediate effect, after public outrage expressed online over Cliff's comments. headtopics.com

In a statement, Nando's said Cliff failed to create an environment where free speech was possible. “There are many instances in which Nando’s has not agreed with the opinions of both guests and presenters on CliffCentral.com, but we have upheld their right to express their views as a core component of a healthy constitutional democracy.

“In the case of The Burning Platform episode which aired on October 21, Nando’s is of the view that Gareth Cliff failed to create an environment where free speech was possible by talking over Mudzuli Rakhivhane and dismissing her view while not allowing her to adequately express it,” said Nando's. 

Some rejected the chicken chain's response as not enough and called for further action to be taken against Cliff. Read more: Times LIVE »

All this has done is to expose just how racist the majority is No, the IDIOT must leave SA Is Nando's now on the blacklist? Loved the peri-peri chicken livers too spricy $$$ Nanfos are chicken!! Seems only twitter is angry. Black majority does not like to be rightfully criticised. The mass Twitter hysteria to shut down a minority voice proves that. Unfortunately for them, they have not silenced Gareth Cliff but only succeeded in rallying more support from him. More to come. Pucker up!

Nando’s takes Gareth Cliff off menu over ‘highly disappointing’ conductNando's has announced that it has terminated its sponsorship of Gareth Cliff's show The Burning Platform on Cliff Central. Great news. Some people are plain spoilt brats thriving on being lauded for daily mouthing off unchecked Balderdash. They prance around as so-called shock-jocks, a subtle licence to be all things nonsensical, while others in the same industry are edited word for word. Good!
