The Idols judges for season 11 (M-Net)
Johannesburg - Controversial media personality Gareth Cliff will know on Friday whether he gets his job as a judge on M-Net's singing competition Idols back.
The channel booted him from the show following a backlash on Twitter after he commented on KwaZulu-Natal realtor Penny Sparrow's Facebook post. She called black New Year's day revellers monkeys.
Cliff's lawyer Dali Mpofu and M-Net's legal representative Wim Trengove presented arguments in the High Court in Johannesburg on Tuesday.
Cliff wanted his job back and R25 million for defamation and breach of contract.
Trengove said M-Net did not want to be associated with someone who the public perceived as a "posterboy for racism".
Mpofu said M-Net's dismissal of Cliff was "the worst form of racism".
