Dale Steyn Satirically Apologizes To Fans After Being Involved In A Silly Banter On Twitter

The social media platforms have become quite an important part of our lives and it has also enabled the celebs in having an interaction with their fans and followers. However, some negative points are also associated in regard to social media and there have been times when the celebrities have to bear a lot despite having no fault of theirs.

Recently, the former South African cricketer Dale Steyn became the target of trollers when he made a little delay in wishing Nathan Lyon on his achievement of taking 400 wickets in the test cricket. The Aussie spinner Nathan Lyon has become the fourth Australian bowler to achieve this feat and he has reached the 400 mark after taking the wicket of England cricketer Dawid Malan on the fourth day of the first test match of the Ashes series 2021-22.

While the whole cricket fraternity and cricket lovers made no delay in congratulating the Aussie spinner, Dale Steyn got a little late in congratulating him. Dale Steyn took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “Take a bow Nathan Lyon 400 strong! Keep going bud! Congratulations”.

Soon, many Twitter users started commenting about the delay that he made in wishing Nathan Lyon and in response, Dale Steyn revealed that he was late because his grandfather departed from the world and he was with his family in these tough times. His tweet read, “Yes I apologize as my grandfather passed away and I was with him and my family during that time.”

While majority of online users expressed their condolences, there were still few who commented that he should have wished Nathan Lyon earlier and in response, Dale Steyn made a sarcastic tweet and took a dig at such online users. The former South African pacer apologizes for being late and says that from the next time, he will ensure that cricket comes first and his family after it.

This is what Dale Steyn tweeted, “Some silly banter going around as I’m a little late in congratulating Nathan for his 400th poll. My apologies, I’ll be sure to put my family tragedies aside next time as cricket is clearly more important.”

We feel that at least in such tough times, netizens should leave the celebs alone.
