Johannesburg - An employee at security company Bidvest Magnum faces disciplinary action for posting alleged hate speech on Twitter, the company said on Wednesday.

"I'm very distressed about the comment and we shall institute an internal inquiry," managing director David Crichton said.

Itumeleng Mabeba tweeted that model Jessica Leandra dos Santos "deserved to burn in hell you racist cunt", and hoped she was "raped with a broken beer bottle", the Citizen reported.

Last Thursday, Dos Santos told her Twitter followers: "Just, well took on an arrogant and disrespectful kaffir inside Spar. Should have punched him, should have."

Dos Santos, who was model of the year for the men's magazine FHM in 2011, has since deleted the post and apologised on her blog. The magazine also stripped her of her title.

Another model, Tshidi Thamana, had to apologise after she tweeted, in response to Dos Santos's comment, that she wished all whites were dead.

"Dear Mr Peter Mokaba? I wish all whites had been killed when you sang Kill the Boer, then we wouldn't have to experience @JessicaLeandra's racism [sic]," she wrote.

Dos Santos and Thamana met Democratic Alliance national spokesperson Mmusi Maimane for talks on Thursday.
