Joost should stop using the media

With the saga between Joost van der Westhuizen and his estranged wife Amor Vittone heating up by the day, we asked our users if they agree with Amor's newest allegations that Joost is using the media to win sympathy.

Here are some of the opinions we received:

Barbara Munro writes: "I have for a while now commented how pathetic Joost is. Yes, what he has is not pleasant nor do I want to take anything away from him. But I too have had enough of him playing martyr and asking all to feel sorry for him.  I now have no sympathy for him what so ever. In fact he is a pain in the butt."

Pamela Woest writes: "I am appalled at the two of you. Just think of your kids before you throw any more mud. Yes Joost. My heart goes out for you, it is sad to see a once healthy man, in your situation. I think its harder for you to accept, knowing one day you will not be there for your kids. Amor, first, I'm not a huge fan. If it's not true what Joost said, my apologies. But, one day, you will be there for your kids, Joost not. He may live a long time, but in what state? Find it in your heart, if you have one, to let your kids Jordan and Kylie spend time with their father. So what if Joost is using the press for publicity, it's the only way he can reach you."

Debby Mulder writes: "I have never been a great fan of Amor, but I agree 100% with her: Joost is still using the media and his sickness to win people over. Just remember that just because you are sick it does not change who you are. For me Joost's true colours are out and its not pretty."

Aneesa Sallie writes: "I think they should keep everything private and Joost should stop seeking sympathy from the media. He  should accept the wrong he did and move on."
