Cape Town - eNCA announced on Thursday that sports reporter Lance Witten
has been suspended due to a controversial tweet
he posted after the death of a Linkin Park concertgoer just outside the Cape Town Stadium.
The 24-hour news channel posted a statement on their Twitter page
after Witten apologised for his tweet posted early on Thursday morning which read: "Linkin Park is so badass, people are dying to see 'em".
Witten has since deleted the post from his Twitter profile.
eNCA also expressed: "Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the young woman who lost her life, and all those injured in the #LinkinPark incident."
A woman died on Wednesday night after an advertising structure collapsed just hours before US rock band Linkin Park took to the stage for their first concert in South Africa.
The band expressed their heartfelt condolences
to the family of the victim.*Do you think that Lance deserved this slap on the wrist or do you agree that he was stating his personal views in his own free time? Tell us what you think!
