Rajasthan Royals and Assam all-rounder Riyan Parag has recently faced cyberbullying on Instagram from a user. The young cricketer has himself shared a screenshot of his inbox on Instagram. An Instagram user with a user name ‘dighambar2345’ had messaged him regarding not concentrating on cricket and uploading useless stories on Instagram. The user further goes on to say that he hadn’t followed Parag to watch non-cricket related content.
In the message written by the user, he has used some abusing words, which is not a good thing. In the screenshot shared by Riyan Parag, we can clearly see how the Instagram user has crossed the limits. The Assam cricketer has reacted along with the screenshot attached. He wrote, “wow”.
The user messaged Parag in hindi, “Abbe… Saale… Tere ko cricket nhi khelna kya… Jab bhi tera status dekhta hun yese faltu chije dikhai deti hai… Tere ko is lie follow kiya hai ki… Tu future cricketer bn skta hai…. Cricket pe focus kr… Bc.”
Riyan Parag isn’t the first cricketer who has faced heat on social media platforms. Many time we have seen such cases on internet platforms. Not only cricketer but every celebrity on the internet has faced at least once this type of non-sense from the users.
Yesterday, England and Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Jofra Archer has shared a story regarding getting racially abused on Instagram by an Indian fan.
“I given a lot of thought about reacting to this and I hope no one else has to deal with stuff like this on a regular basis, it isn’t ever acceptable and should be addressed properly in my opinion. I will never understand how people feel so freely to say these things to another human being it baffles me, read Archer’s story.
