Yuvraj Singh apologises publically for Chahal remark
New Delhi : Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh tendered a public apology on his racist comment made during a live chat with Rohit Sharma over Chahal.
In a tweet, the former left-handed batsman wrote: “This is to clarify that I have never believed in any kind of disparity, be it on the basis of caste, colour, creed or gender. I have given and continue to spend my life for the welfare of people.”
“I believe in the dignity of life and respect each individual without exception,” the 39-year-old further wrote.
“I understand that while I was having a conversation with my friends, I was misunderstood, which was unwarranted. However, as a responsible Indian I want to say that if I have unintentionally hurt anybody’s sentiments or feelings, I would like to express regret for the same,” he wrote.
“My love for India and all its people is eternal,” Yuvraj finished with a heart emoticon.
In one of the recent incidents, Yuvraj Singh was on a live chat with his fellow team member Rohit Sharma and he called Yuzvendra Chahal 'Bhan** log' forgetting he is live and thousands of people are watching him. He also mocked Chahal for posting a video in which his father is dancing.
