Miss Universe, who hails from Tsolo in the Eastern Cape asked Mugg and Bean on Twitter to deal with the situation.

Mugg and Bean soon responded, also expressing their shock at the actions of Mr Kruger and said the necessary steps would be taken to deal with the situation.

Twitter users have linked Kruger to several other businesses in the Buffalo City Metro who took to Facebook to distance themselves from Kruger.

It is alleged that a charge of crimen injuria was laid against Kruger at the Fleet Street police station on Friday.

Algoa FM News approached the East London police who are yet to respond.
