Wasim Akram responds to an inappropriate comment about his Wife
Wasim Akram is very active on Instagram and often shares pictures with his wife. On New Year’s Day, he posted a picture with his wife along with the caption, ‘Here’s hoping for a better year! Wishing you and your families all the love, safety, and prosperity for 2024. All the best from my family to yours”
Akram’s fans took to the comment section to wish him the same, and Akram thanked them back. However, one of the comments irked Akram, as an Instagram user made a seductive remark about his wife. The user had written, “Uff she is such a hotwife.”
Akram found the comment inappropriate and hit back at the Instagram user. In response, Akram wrote, “Do you think that’s the appropriate thing to say? I wish to meet your parents and tell them what have they created douche”
Shaniera Thompson is Wasim Akram’s 2nd Wife
