If you are a die-hard Koffee With Karan fan then this news will surely make your Friday freaky. The online digital partner of the show Hotstar has taken down the episode featuring Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul.
While it was the first time two Cricketers graced the Koffee couch, the episode garnered a lot of backlash on the social media. All thanks to Hardik Pandya and his derogatory thoughts about women.
"Apology has obviously been drafted by the agency. Doesn't appear sincere. I am inclined to suggest a penalty but since I have not seen the clip, maybe Diana would like to suggest some penalty. There should be a penalty? What do you feel? Could be different for both players depending on what they said on the show," said a statement.
BCCI issued a notice to both Pandya and Rahul after which the all-rounder issued an apology. "I made an appearance on the chat show where I have made certain statements without realising that these could be disrespectful and offend sensitivities of viewers for which I am sincerely regretful."
He added "I would like to assure you that there was no malice or any sort of ill-intent on my part to offend anyone or portray any section of the society in bad light. I made these statements in the flow of the show and had not comprehended the extent to which my statements would be found offensive," the statement is currently in PTI's possession.
