Controversial radio DJ and former Idols SA judge Gareth Cliff recently expressed his contempt for paper straws on Instagram. The ‘shock jock’ said that paper straws “suck” and he doesn’t care what environmental activists tell him.
“Paper straws be damned. Not every drink should turn into paper soup within a couple of minutes,” he wrote.
The post riled up some feathers. Those against Gareth’s sentiments quickly responded to the post. Such as one user who commented, “Yes rather our fresh water and oceans turn nto micro soup. Way better.”
Another Instagram user told the DJ to watch a video of a straw being pulled from a turtle’s nose. Gareth told them to promptly unfollow him.
