On the anniversary of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp’s tragic death, former Olympian Oscar Pistorius posted a tribute to the beautiful model on his website calling her death an “accident”.
“No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved and continues to love Reeva,” he wrote on his website.
The pain and sadness — especially for Reeva’s parents, family and friends, consumes me with sorrow,” Pistorius continued. “The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”
Many fans expressed outrage over the tribute insisting that he only did it for sympathy.
User @queenelisabeth wrote, “Maybe he shouldn’t have shot her. #justathought”
And @jstutsport chimed in, “Only thing devastating for him is [that] he is going to jail.”
Despite the fact that Pistorius insists he accidentally shot Steenkamp to death, he was indicted on murder charges and his trial will begin on March 3.
