Twitter’s sleuthing skills are not to be underestimated, and one racist South African is about to come home to a shitstorm.
Yesterday, a video was widely shared across social media, starting with a tweet from Farah C. Fortune.
It’s not hard to see why people were so so keen to find out who this sad excuse for a man is, and it’s certainly not to roll out the red carpet when he returns from his holiday.
To the video we go, with a warning that you’re going to hear the k-word:
“….. and not one K@!##&÷ in sight ” wow… why doesn’t he move there then. Some of you white folks are tiring. pic.twitter.com/pMl3IXPf4F

On behalf of every decent South Africa, Adam Catzavelos, please don’t feel obliged to return to these shores.
Twitter wasted no time in digging up the dirt, with these details from EWN:
Adam Catzavelos uses the k-word while expressing his joy for not seeing black people on his holiday…
Catzavelos was one of the entrepreneurs profiled on the station’s Nedbank Business Accelerator programme in 2014.
It appears Catzavelos works for a business started by his father, St Georges Fine Foods.
A number of angry people on Twitter have called for all companies who work with the business, including The Baron, Butcher Boys, The Butcher Shop & Grill and Braza, to turn their backs on St Georges.
Despite numerous attempts to contact Catzavelos, he has not answered calls or replied to text messages.
Adam seems to have deleted his social media presence, and if you visit https://stgeorgesfinefoods.com/ you get a blank slate.
Cool, except the ‘About us‘ page is still up and running:
“We did not invent racism, but seem to have perfected it.”
Here’s a tasty nugget of info – their ‘Contact Us’ page is also still up and running, phone number and all.
Over on Twitter, #AdamCatzavelos is trending in a big way:
Sheesh, hey, my boet, maybe you should call your chinas out when they’re being terrible racists.
Or, as with many Facebook comments section, you could behave like a moron:
If you think you’re tired of hearing about these racist rants, over and over again, imagine how tired other South Africans must feel – ‘I have black friends’ isn’t going to cut it any longer.
Also, Penny Sparrow, any chance you have a spare room for Adam at your hideout?
