Redi Tlhabi pleads with her followers to ignore man who threatened to rape her

Broadcaster and author Redi Tlhabi has pleaded with her followers to not circulate the image of a man who recently threatened to rape her on social media.

Responding to a since-deleted tweet, Tlhabi recently tweeted in part: "Morning 1) You should not hijack someone else's image 2) If you are going to make rape threats, you need to make it harder for anyone to identify you 3) Does your fiancée know that you make rape threats on Twitter? Does your employer know?"

Her response was immediately met with requests for his picture for the purposes to circulate as a way to shame him for his actions.
