These socialite media websites tell the story more in-depth,

https://atlantablackstar.com/2019/0...s-foot-after-a-white-man-called-her-a-baboon/

Zehetleitner told the news outlet he approached the man who then asked:

“What’s wrong with you man? You are dating a baboon, a monkey.”

It’s unclear how the situation unfolded at this point, but Zehetleitner said two of the man’s friends pulled him away.

The situation would have ended there, but Zehetleitner said he and Ngomani had to walk back past the group of about six white men after cashing out.

Zehetleitner told the Daily Mail that’s when one of them called Ngomani “Black b—-” and “******,” an Afrikaans racial slur referring to a Black African person, historically used mostly by white South Africans.

Zehetleitner said he confronted the group again to explain and the conversation turned violent.

“Three jumped on me and all and were giving me a kicking on the ground and I saw Mirriam being attacked so (I) shrugged these three off and bundled a couple of guys off of my fiancée,” Zehetleitner told the Daily Mail.

“Then they all attacked me at once,” he said. “I can handle three but five or six or seven or however many it was was too much, and I was beaten unconscious, and when I came round they had all gone.”

Time Square general manager Brett Hoppe told Sowetan Live news he “vehemently” refutes the couple’s version of what happened.

“Time Square does not tolerate racism or acts of violence and responds immediately should we encounter this,” Hoppe said. “Our extensive video footage is considerably at odds with initial media reports and allegations made.”


...

Zehetleitner said Ngomani’s foot was broken so badly in the incident that it pointed away at a 90-degree angle. The couple has pushed back wedding plans, Zehetleitner told the Daily Mail.

“She is in so much agony and has so many painkillers and has just had a major operation to fix her leg but the obvious fear for her as a model is will she be scarred or left with a limp,” Zehetleitner said.

Ngomani, who is known for her distinctive walk, was released from the hospital Sunday, according to Sowetan Live.

It’s unclear how the incident will affect her modeling career.

...

Zehetleitner said he knows the names of his attackers but authorities have asked them not to reveal them to protect their investigation.

“I have been asked not to say more until the police are ready to make arrests, but these guys are rugby players from a well known rugby team, so this is all very sensitive, Zehetleitner said.

Mirriam Ngomani, film star and famous black model in South Africa, and her German boyfriend Tobias Zehetleitner were brutally beaten up in an alleged racist attack on Thursday by star rugby players in Pretoria.

...

The agent of the model said at least five white men who attacked the couple are well-known patrons of the casino and players from a "famous rugby club", the Daily Mail reported.

...

"Mirriam is known as the Catwalk Queen for her distinctive walk and teaches it to all the beauty pageant contestants and new models. She is the Naomi Campbell of South Africa. But if she cannot walk properly or is badly scarred, this could end her modeling career," the model's partner added.

...

The German businessman said that he expected an arrest would be made "very quickly" as he has gotten his lawyers involved and was prepared to "ruin their careers because they had no qualms about trying to ruin Mirriam's."

The couple has postponed their wedding because of the brutal attack. Zehetleitner added that it was not the first time they had been subjected to racist abuse in the region.

"As an interracial couple we have never had any trouble in townships or in Cape Town or Johannesburg, but in Pretoria, where we both live, we get vile racist abuse all the time. So many people see it is as wrong for a black woman and a white man to be together. How in this age can people call a black woman a baboon or a monkey or use the K-word? It is just so wrong to have to put up with this sort of racial abuse," Zehetleitner said.

Ngomani also released a statement saying she was in a lot of pain after the "sick and disgusting attack".

"Doctors have told me that my leg is broken and will take a very long time to heal, maybe three months. I am so scared and terrified that my legs have been scarred and I don't know if I will ever be able to show them off again and do my modeling on the catwalk if there are bad scars. They will have to pay for this as what they did was evil and I would like them to be put in prison and never come out. Why do they do this just because we are different colors?" she said.

A spokesperson for South African Police Service confirmed the attack, stating that they are probing the incident and going through the security footage of the casino.

What is a bet that these attackers have, facebook profiles that share farm murders and white genocide stories? They sound like they got that level of IQ

Probably, maybe...

What does this have to do with anything?

I'll say this again just to be very clear: if this played out as claimed then I hope these people are brought to book for such shocking behaviour. And yes, especially where alcohol is concerned, anything is possible.

Thing is,

I can handle three but five or six or seven or however many it was was too much

This guy sounds like he's full of kack to me.

Could be a case of trying to save a bit of face, in which case it doesn't mean that he/they are necessarily outright lying. But why exaggerate when recounting the event to the media? It just brings his credibility into question.

This case is a bit odd; our local media didn’t report the same, or as elaborative, as these two ‘gossip’ sites. Like our media held some things back, but it is the smaller details which add up. The casino admits that they were assaulted, but deny the runup as to how it has happened.

It may very well be that the couple had a hand in their own beating which still isn’t right in them being assaulted, but they are now using the incident to gain public support.

The same amount of relevance as the model's looks, at least it could be a motive for the attack. The model's looks play no factor in this story

Nobody knows club rugby. Club rugby is extremely shît at marketing themselves and the players don't even know when they're playing half the time.

If it's reported like that it is someone from the Bulls. Probably not the main team.

But why mention the GP talking about farm murders and stuff on a thread where some white racists beat up a couple?

Since she was the victim and a model I can see why an article will say something about her appearance. I can't see how farm murders can be mentioned in this article.

This. He doesn't need to save any face either. No shame in getting your ass handed to you by even 2 guys, let alone 3+.

Maybe he's afraid his fiance will hold it against him for failing to protect her but there was really nothing the vast majority of men (as in 99%) could have done.

Model = looks in almost all cases, unless it is a hand or foot model. So guess again sunshine, totally relevant.

Unless you are talking about the “looks” that apparently got her beaten up?

Still totally irrelevant.

You made this narrative up yourself and now you are running with it. This violent savages should've thought about the consequences of their actions before assaulting people needlessly. I, unlike you, condemn this violent savages to the same level that I would condemn violent savages of any other colour. You should try doing the same one day.
OK, seems I will have to spell it out for you. Sorry of you take this as a personal attack too.

This is what you said
They should give the "brekers" personal details. Let them handle the fall out like the big boys they think they are.

We (Myself and others) do think this is a very dangerous thing. Who will pick up this bait you want thrown out here? EFF, BLF etc, right? Think back at the poor teacher that had a pic taken of her class. These same thugs were there in a jiffy, endangering innocent people.

Don’t you think the same would happen here? Anyone associated, in the neighbourhood or as FB etc friends, will be a target. These thugs do not know the limits. And you want to give them access to personal details. That would result in mob justice, which in itself is maybe not bad, but innocent people will get hurt.

Now I am pretty sure this is not the first time you have asked or suggested something similar. (If not, I apologise). I suggest you think of the consequences of what you ask for.

So yes, my attack might seem personal, but only because it seems you can not think for yourself.
