Springbok lock, Eben Etzebeth has issued a statement following an accusation that he assaulted and pointed a gun at a man in the West Coast town of Langebaan.
On Sunday a video and accusations made the rounds via social media, alleging Etzebeth assaulted and pointed a gun at the homeless man in Langebaan, Bit-Media has been trying to get hold of the alleged video which seems to have disappeared.
Etzebeth is also alleged to have used the racial slur ‘hotnots’.
However, Etzebeth took to Facebook to refute the claims.
It is completely untrue and unfounded to claim that I physically or racially abused anyone in Langebaan as has been reported on social media. Multiple witnesses can corroborate that.”
