Durban - A veteran Durban radio producer has found himselfin hot water over an insensitive Facebook post commenting on the death of twocity cyclists at the weekend.

Now East Coast Radio jock

and Sunday Tribune columnist KevinMinter-Brown has received veiled threats to his life as a wave of vitriolsweeps social media.

Minter-Brown on Monday posted a comment in jest, suggestingthat a running club be started on the N3, after it emerged that cycling on theM4, scene of the weekend tragedy, was in fact illegal.

This after cyclists Richard da Silva and Jarred Dwyer were killedwhen they were hit by a car while on a training ride on Sunday morning.

He posted: "I'm thinking of starting a running club… Iknow there's plenty of other roads, but I think if there is an opportunity toput us directly in harms way, then why not?"

He removed the post shortly afterward and has sinceproffered an unconditional apology.

Speaking to News24, Minter-Brown said the backlash had beenoverwhelming and that social media users were "ruining" his life.

"I am surprised by how far this has gone. Right now, itfeels like there is more ill feeling aimed at me than the driver of the car.

"I accept all responsibility for what I wrote and itwas done in satire like a lot of my posts. This one was in poor taste and itwasn't directed at anyone in particular," he stressed.

"I had a very bizarre death threat at 4am yesterdaywhen I got a phone call to say that there is ambulance outside waiting for me.I don't know what to make of it and I have received the most vitriolic stuff inmy inbox on Facebook.

"I have spent 15 years at ECR doing good work and Ihope everyone can see past a silly moment on Facebook," Minter-Brown said.

He declined to comment on what action the radio station hadtaken against him.

East Coast Radio had not responded to questions at the timeof publishing.
