Johannesburg- The violence and racial tension that erupted at the University of Free State on Monday afternoon has ignited widespread anger across the nation. 

Protests at the university against Afrikaans being used as medium of teaching, as well as outsourcing of university staff, reached a boiling point when protesting students were attacked by rugby players and supporters. 

A video showed students go head-to-head against each other after protestors disrupted a rugby match at the university.

Taking to social media, numerous celebrities have lashed out against racism, in the hope that their voices will help defuse the ongoing violence. 

Hip-hop sensation Cassper Nyovest believes that the solution is to stop fighting against each other. 

"We really need to stop fighting each other and start fight for each other!!!," Cassper said. 

Mi Casa front man J'Something echoed the sentiments, explaining that he will always support unity. TV personality Lerato Kganyago also added her voice about the violence.
