A strange sight. Minki and Casper DeVries sitting next to each other. It's like before and after silicone explosion. #roastza

chrisroper Chris Roper
Just realised that @steve_hofmeyr is dressed as a gay Neil Diamond. Or some kind of boere Puff Daddy. Puff Papa. #roastza

nicdawes Nicholas Dawes
Is #RoastZA about South Africans' capacity to turn the worst of our shit to fertiliser, or a reputation laundering exercise for a racist?
