The Economic Freedom Fighters has rejected Eyewitness News apology over an insult made by journalist Barry Bateman allegedly aimed at Julius Malema.
Bateman allegedly called him a "p**s" at an impromptu press briefing outside the Hawks offices.
He was caught on camera using derogatory words while in conversation with another reporter.
Ewn in a statement said "Bateman was taken off air immediately after they were made aware of the video. EWN will hold an internal probe that will deal with the matter appropriately,"
