Cape Town – Loyiso Gola, comedian and host of the Emmy nominated satirical weekly news show Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola on eNCA (DStv 403) and e.tv, is as mad as hell and won't take it anymore.

The comedian lashed out in a Twitter tirade on Tuesday and trashed the South African cellular operator Vodacom for what he sees as terrible service.

Gola made his hate and disdain for Vodacom known in a series of Tweets to his 307 000 followers, venting that he feels ripped off by the cellular service provider, after his cellphone was stolen.

"So I pay Vodacom insurance every month for them to tell me I must pay R7 000 for a new iPhone," Gola wrote on Twitter.

He followed it up with an expletive laced rant against Vodacom, asking followers to join him, and with Tweets like "VODACOM IS A RIPOFF", "Been taking shit from Vodacom for a while now" and "I hate Vodacom's slow ass internet".

When Vodacom responded with "Hi Loyiso, please DM us your contact number and we'll get in touch to sort this out ASAP", Gola responded with an expletive, and telling Vodacom to go away.

He followed it up with a "Dear Vodacom, If I was not clear the first time #ihatevodacom".

Gola added: "R12 800 for an iPhone 5S. Vodacom has lost the plot".
