Ex-Miss India and Bollywood actress, Esha Gupta has penned an apology letter to Alex Iwobi and Arsenal for sharing a racist remark directed at the Nigeria international after the Gunners were beaten by Manchester United in the FA Cup.
Gupta came under fire for posting on Instagram a WhatsApp conversation with a friend who described Iwobi as a gorilla.
''I am extremely sorry for my ignorant action last Friday. Being an ardent fan of many years, I was deeply engrossed and caught up in the game,'' Gupta told IANS, according to sports.ndtv.com.
''For this, I am deeply regretful. I cannot begin to imagine how much I have hurt your sentiments. Racism has absolutely no place in my heart, and I promise you, for whatever it's worth, going forward this will never happen again.''
In her letter to Arsenal, the 33-year-old club ambassador realized she was wrong and promised to turn over a new leaf .
''I hope the club can accept my humblest apology and give me the opportunity to make amends. I promise to be very responsible from here on,'' she added.
