Former West Indies allrounder Marlon Samuels is facing the heat for his explosive expletive-laden rant at Ben Stokes. The controversial cricketer not only slammed Stokes but also made disgusting comments about the wife of the England allrounder. Samuels made the comments while reacting to a light-hearted banter from Stokes.
Last week, the England World Cup-winner shared his experience of staying in quarantine and had joked that he would not wish it on his ‘worst enemy’ Marlon Samuels. Stokes had to be quarantined twice in recent times after he went to New Zealand to meet his father before travelling to the UAE for the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
“I posted a few Instagram stories and some of the England boys were messaging me asking, ‘What it’s like?’ and I was saying, ‘It wasn’t the most enjoyable thing you ever have to do, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy’,” Stokes had said. “I text my brother saying the same thing, and my brother asked, ‘You wouldn’t even do that to Marlon Samuels?’ I said, ‘No, it’s that bad’, — that’s how tough it was,” he had added.
Marlon Samuels slammed for unpleasant remarks
While it was very clear that Stokes’ comment about Samuels was a light-hearted banter, the latter did not take it too kindly. In response, Samuels posted an explosive rant on Instagram, in which he appeared to make sexual remarks about Stokes’ wife. He was also boasting about his ‘superior skin tone’ in his message to Stokes.
“No white boy could diss me in the sports and no get back diss look at this b***h still thinking about me give me 14 days with you wife turn her into Jamaican in 14 seconds mate none of yall knows me that simple means it’s my f***ing superior skin tone yall hate f*** you,” Samuels posted on Tuesday.
The rivalry between Stokes and Samuels was ignited during a Test series in 2015, when the West Indies batsman mocked the left-hander by saluting him following a dismissal. The pair then crossed the path again in the 2016 T20 World Cup final when Samuels powered West Indies to a stunning win over England.
But the former West Indies cricketer has definitely crossed the line with his latest post for Stokes and has now found himself in the firing line. His comments have not been well-received by the cricketing fraternity and fans and they took to social media to slam the outspoken former allrounder.
Here are some of the tweets:
