Ninja: Brandon Auret was juiced up on a copious amount of steroids

Cape Town - Rumours spread last year that Ninja from Die Antwoord made life a living hell for his co-stars on the set of Neill Blomkamp's latest movie, Chappie.

In a recent interview with Channel24's sister publication, News24Live, local actor Brandon Auret spoke openly about Die Antwoord's antics on the set of the movie which was released last Friday.

He said: "You know when someone comes and feels that they have the right to tell you how to do your job and they have no right to talk to me about acting...yeah it became an issue."

In a Q&A published on BoingBoing, Ninja from Die Antwoord set the record straight addressing all the nasty rumours about him and his wife, ¥O-Landi Vi$$er on the set of Chappie.

On the topic of working with Brandon, Ninja wrote: "i did bump heads a little with brandon auret (hippo) who was juiced up on a copius amount of steroids during filming (to help him stay buff)

"during one take brandon was so pumped up that he punched the window of the van that ¥o-landi was sitting right next to, and the window smashed (real glass, not fake glass) and glass went in ¥o-landi's eye (sic)."

He goes on to say that Brandon didn’t like ideas that he, like all the other actors, suggested but that Neill loved most of them.

"neill bounced the hippo character of me and ¥ and we gave some input on his hairstyle, which is turned out so dope.... i also suggested that hippo shud have a zulu accent which neill loved... (sic)."

The local rapper also addressed the rumour of him showing women on set pictures of him giving himself a blowjob.

He wrote: "my style around girls has been kinda like 'laid back in da cut'... cos i never knew what to say, nowadays i'm still kicked back around girls i like... and it's super funny (sic)

"i wish it was true! but i haven't been able to suck my own dick since i was a teenager... (sic)."

Based on his statement, Ninja believes that all went well on the set and that him and ¥O-Landi kept to themselves most of the time, he went on to comment that he and Neill Blomkamp have maintained a good relationship and have never had any conflict between them.

Ninja ends the Q&A with a quote from James Franco in The Interview: "MOTHERFUCKERS ARE PEANUT BUTTER AND JEALOUS... THEY HATE US CAUSE THEY ANUS (sic)."
