Johannesburg - Maps Maponyane was having just another Tuesday night. Then he decided to tweet this; "I just read that the word 'Xhosa' is derived from the Khoisan language and means 'angry men'. It all makes sense. (sic)"

Shortly after that a storm erupted on social media.

In just an hour, over 40k tweets were directed at him, most attacking him and questioning what he actually does.

Maps quickly deleted the tweet and apologised for his message.

But that didn't stop the tirade from going on and on...

Soon he was trending...

And he said sorry (ish) again. (He pinned this old tweet to the top of his timeline again).

So, how was your Tuesday eve? Cause Xhosa Twitter had a great night...
