Bollywood actress Esha Gupta has become quite a popular fan of the English Premier League club Arsenal, especially since the days she dated club defender Hector Bellerin and helped the team launch their away jersey back in 2017.
However, following a recent racist remark directed at Arsenal winger cum attacker Alex Iwobi that she shared on her social media, the 33-year-old has been facing a lot of backlash. She shared a conversation on her Instagram where she was laughing off comments in which Iwobi was being called a ‘gorilla’, and someone for whom evolution had stopped.
Although she removed the photo and issued an apology soon after facing flak, Arsenal supporters are not going to forget the incident anytime soon. Esha Gupta had apologised, saying, “Guys I’m sorry you thought it was racist. Was bad on my part, being a sports lover. Wallah never meant it. Sorry guys forgive the stupidity.”
