The Indian bowler Yuzvendra Chahal had to face aggressive behaviour from the fans as he jokes about the Coronavirus pandemic on social media, as fans found his comment distasteful
On Friday, on completing 13 million followers the official Instagram page of Indian Cricket Team posted a picture to thank its followers. Yuzvendra Chahal made his way to the comment section and wrote ‘Corona Party?’.
This comment received a huge backlash from the fans, who turned up against Chahal, many even went onto write abuses against him. After he got a lot of negative replies, the cricketer realized his mistake and deleted the comment.
The Indian spinner is highly active on social media and is often seen making videos for his online accounts, moreover, he is also seen making funny comments on the profile of other famous personalities.
Most of the times, Chahal’s online activities have never offended a huge amount of people, but this time, the public did not take it well. The Coronavirus pandemic has affected the whole world massively.
Most of the countries in the world are advising their citizens to remain in isolation, meanwhile, most of the international routes have also been suspended to prevent the spread.
The virus has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people across the globe and is further spreading its wrath. Most of the huge sporting events have been cancelled around the world.
Even the IPL, which was set to take off in the last week of March has been postponed to April 15, but considering the situation, it could be further extended.
Whereas, all the international series, even India Vs South Africa’s ODI series was eventually postponed with the rapid rise in the cases.
