Model-turned-actress Esha Gupta has a fairly good time on social media on most days. Monday though was not one of those days. The lady who is an ardent Arsenal supporter and also the brand ambassador of the football club recently got a beating on Twitter. Esha’s recent Instagram story which featured a conversation between her and a friend has left Twitterati angry. In the chat, Esha's friend called Nigerian professional footballer, Alex Iwobi a gorilla and the comment is facing severe backlash.
"Solves our winger issues. I can't see that gorilla faced Iwobi running down the flank again. He's so bad ya," read the screenshot of her WhatsApp conversation with a friend. To which, Esha replied, "Haha... I don't know why they don't bench him more." After Esha made her personal chat with her friend public on IG, football fans could not keep calm and slammed the actress on social media.
After facing the heat on Twitter, Esha took to her account and apologised for the conversation with her friend. But the damage was done and people were in no mood to go slow on her. Many even mocked Esha for laughing it off as a joke.
Esha Gupta’s insensitivity has left fans furious. Even as the actress has apologised, it will be interesting to see if the Arsenal themselves will take action given that she's an ambassador for the club. Will Esha’s silly mistake cost her?
