EWN reporter Barry Bateman will be able to pay his bills at the end of the month after a "crowdfunding" campaign managed to raise enough money to cover his salary.

 Bateman was caught on camera calling Julius Malema a p**s following a briefing by the EFF leader outside the Hawks' offices on September 10, News24 previously reported. He was pulled off air after a video of the incident went viral.

Bateman and EWN have since apologised for the incident and Bateman was suspended for one month without pay.
