After losing to India in the ongoing Cricket World Cup, Pakistan have been on the receiving end of criticism. Lately, the spillage of words have gone way out of hand, with the latest being a fan body shaming skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed in a UK mall. Finally, after facing plenty of criticism, the offender apologised via Twitter.
Allowing the man in question to click a photo with him, the wicket-keeper fell victim to some bad words.
The offender told, "Why are you as fat as a pig? You have made Pakistan proud."
The video which was posted on Twitter went viral, and the offender faced plenty of criticism.
Filled with obvious guilt of abusing a Pakistani sporting icon, the offender apologised to Sarfaraz via a Twitter video.
He stated that his words were incorrect, and he apologised to everyone. He also mentioned that he had never uploaded the video, and never expected it to get viral too.
