Darren Sammy, two-time T20 World Cup-winning captain, has been a target of racist hatred from Indian cricket supporters after a joking tweet about India's dismal 8-wicket defeat to New Zealand on Sunday. Former West Indian captain Darren Sammy had to deal with the wrath of Indian supporters after mocking India on his Twitter account.
"Ooooops just heard this song playing on my playlist ‘someone please call 911, I’m in trouble I’m in really big trouble." Sammy joked. The tweet was intended to highlight India's current standing in the T20 World Cup.
Indian supporters reacted angrily to the remark, launching a racial diatribe at the former World Cup champion. Sammy was exposed to grievous insults, with some Indian supporters even alluding to the George Floyd affair.
Over the last week, Indian fans have criticized Mohammad Shami for his religious beliefs and India's captain, Virat Kohli, for backing Mohammad Shami.
Here are a few examples of Indian fans' horrible reactions:
India's dreams of reaching the semi-finals are hanging by a thread after suffering their second straight defeat in the big tournament. Previously, they were defeated by Pakistan by a massive 10-wicket score.
