Bollywood Actress Gupta Slammed For Sharing Racist Post Labeling Iwobi Gorilla

Bollywood Actress Gupta Slammed For Sharing Racist Post Labeling Iwobi Gorilla

A Bollywood actress Esha Gupta has been slammed for sharing racist remarks aimed at Nigeria forward Alex Iwobi, Daily Mail reports.

Gupta posted a Whatsapp image conversation with a friend describing Iwobi as a ‘gorilla’.

The image showed messages exchanged between herself and Varun_Gupta17, with one of the message reading: “Solves our winger issues. I can’t see that gorilla faced Iwobi running down the flank again. He’s so bad ya,” Varun_Gupta17 wrote.

She (Esha Gupta) replied: ‘Hahahahahaha I honestly dunno why they don’t bench him more.”

The 33-year-old who once dated Hector Bellerin and helped launch a new Arsenal kit back in 2017 immediately issued an apology after several fans hit back at her online insisting there was no racial intent behind it.

Gupta wrote: “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.

“Well it was my fault. So gotta own up to my s***… sorry. It was us discussing our frustration during the game. Sorry as I didn’t realise it was directed towards racism.

“Laughed over spur of the moment, which was the games result guys. Been a victim of racism myself before. But this is not something I’m proud of. It was a fault, sorry guys.”

Gupta is a former Miss India International winner most known for her roles in horror film Raaz and thriller Rustom.

Meanwhile, an Arsenal spokesman said: “This person is not an official club ambassador and we totally condemn racist language of this nature which has no place in our game or society.

“As a club we work hard to break down barriers and ensure everyone feels part of the Arsenal family.”

    Perhaps she toasted Iwobi without success. If Iwobi no gree, find another man na? Na by force?

  • Edoman of NewJersey,USA 2 years ago

    She is soooo far below Iwobi standard. Some Indian girls smell like garlic. Iwobi of Nigeria would never date Indian slot.

        but na tru sha. Some indian people get body odour. No be all of them o. But d problem be say you must to dey careful nowadays b’cos everytin u talk fit be regarded as racist comment.
        Me I no regard d comment by Oga Edoman of New Jersey as racist at all. If u do, me sure say Edoman no mean to offend anyone. Na in mind e dey speak.

        • My people say if some hungry hunter fire  a deer way run away, him go say: “He! me I no even like deer meat. Deer meat de taste like dry leaf!” That’s the problem with this dirty Indian slot. 

          Bro Edoman has said it all. You de wonder why most Indian ladies cover themselves even during summer? My brother them get bad, bad craw-craw for skin.

        Kelvin. The so-called Indian girl said that Iwobi of Nigeria is a’ human monkey’. How would you characterize such statement, a flattering or a racist comment about our young Iwobi ? Then if you deduced that such public statement as racist, then, regard my statement too as a retaliation for our Iwobi. I personally regarded such statement, particularly if it is coming from a non-African individual, as an insult to me and mine. I must hit back if l can. That is what l did.

  • People just need to watch what they say, especially “celebrity types”. Did she mean it in a racist way, probably not, however, she has found herself in a storm.

    It’s easy for people to say what they like from the safety of a screen, but when yaawaa happen them go begin form innocent

    This woman’s comment should serve as a lesson to all Africans who hang out with Indians here or abroad. It should also be a warning to our corrupt politicians who fast-track licenses for Indians to open and own businesses in Nigeria.
