Trump insults Oscar judge

2014-09-12 13:50

Cape Town – The American business magnate, Donald Trump, on Friday voiced his opinion on the Oscar Pistorius ruling.

The real estate tycoon referred to Judge Thokozile Masipa as a "total moron" after Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistorius was found not guilty of premeditated murder. He was also found not guilty of firing a shot through an open sunroof and for the illegal possession of ammunition, but was found guilty of firing a shot in a Johannesburg restaurant in 2013.

Judge Thokozile Masipa handed down her judgment in the North Gauteng High Court on Friday, News24 reported.

Trump was not happy with this ruling and tweeted; “The judge in the Oscar Pistorious case is a total moron. She said he didn't act like a killer. This is another O.J. disaster!”

Another famous face took to Twitter to highlight the similarities between the Oscar Pistorius case and that of retired American football player O.J. Simpson.

Trevor Noah, well-known South African comedian, tweeted; “O. J. Pistorius”.

Noah also caused a stir on social media with other comments relating to the Oscar murder trial. (Read more here)
