The tragedy occurred 11 years ago. Pistorius claimed he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he shot her in his Pretoria home. The incident still resonates with social media. There have been jokes and memes about Pistorius since it happened.

Khune’s endorsement of one such joke drew criticism from many who found it insensitive. Pistorius has maintained a low profile since his parole, so the debate over the appropriateness of jokes about his case continues.
