Cape Town – South Africans are outraged after an American lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, called South Africa a "failed country" during an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN.

"Oh please, Mr Doucheshowitz - maybe look at your own miserable country before calling other's a failing country you pompous self-righteous prick!" one YouTube user wrote in reaction to the interview.

Dershowitz, a well-known criminal lawyer who has been involved in several high-profile legal cases, lashed out at South Africa during an interview with Piers Morgan regarding the Oscar Pistorius case.

In the controversial video clip, Dershowitz says he has spent time in South Africa and it is a “failed and lawless” country.
 
“This goes to anyone like Alan #Dershowitz. You don't know us and visiting South Africa for a day doesn't make you an expert on South Africa,” Twitter user @DerekNugen tweeted.
