Indian actress apologizes to Iwobi for calling him a gorilla

Bollywood actress Esha Gupta who came under fire for comparing Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi to a gorilla has publicly issued an apology to the player.


The 33-year old claimed she never knew her comments were racist.

“Guys I am sorry you thought it was racist. Was bad on my part, being a sports lover.

Sorry guys, forgive the stupidity. It was us discussing our frustration during the game.

Sorry as I didn’t realise it was directed towards racism. Laughed over the spur of the moment, which was the game’s result guys. Been a victim of racism myself before. But this is not something I am proud of. It was a fault, sorry guys,” Esha wrote.

Gupta who once dated Hector Bellerin shared the racist remarks on her Whatsapp which she posted on her Instagram page after Arsenal’s FA Cup defeat to Manchester United last Friday.

“Solves our winger issues. I can’t see that gorilla faced Iwobi running down the flank again.


The chat didn’t go down well with Arsenal fans who slammed the actress.
