WATCH: When Zuma resigns and live TV goes horribly wrong

Live television is never easy. It may look glamourous and laid-back, but it really isn’t.

This was exactly the case last night when eNCA reporter Nickolaus Bauer received a totally different reception from ordinary citizens in the streets of Braamfontein, Johannesburg, following Jacob Zuma’s resignation as the country’s head of state.

And Twitter has been dragging Nickolaus over his interview with one woman sitting in a car, who referred to Zuma as a ‘motherf*****’ while another man said ‘f**k him’ when he attempted to get reaction from them.

Clearly Nickolaus was caught off guard by the sharp comments that have set Twitter abuzz.
