Here's what some on social media had to say:

Cleo's statement had a lot of Twitter users upset namely Boity who asked Cleo why he's "defending" a rapist. 

The DJ didn't take the criticism lightly and dragged Nomzamo Mbatha and Arthur Mafokate with his clap-back. Most Twitter users feel his support fell on the wrong side of the coin.
