Celebs, including Bonnie Mbuli and Claire Mawisa have added their voices to the debate around Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba after the politician used an "inappropriate gesture" in parliament this week.

Gigaba had social media in a frenzy on Tuesday when he responded to EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi and seemed to shade the minister over his leaked sex tape during a question and answer session by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The EFF man suggested that ministers not use camera phones or devices that could be hacked.

Gigaba responded by flashing his pinky in what many saw as a way to insult Ndlozi's man bits.

The minister took to Twitter to apologise for his gesture, which he claimed was provoked by "petty taunts", but that didn't stop some of the biggest names in Mzansi from criticising his conduct.

Taking to Twitter, Afternoon Express presenter Bonnie Mbuli said the incident had left her wanting to vomit in disgust.

Claire Mawisa retweeted Bonnie's message and questioned if Gigaba was tired of always apologising.

She then shared advice on not being so easily provoked.
