New Delhi, Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya on Wednesday issued an apology for his anti-women comment, saying he may have “got a bit carried away with the nature of the show.”
In the latest episode of a talk show, Koffee With Karan, in which opener KL Rahul also featured, the all-rounder drew criticism for his misogynistic and sexist remarks.
He took to twitter to apologise and wrote, “After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way. Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone’s sentiments. Respect.”
During the show he said, “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m a little from the black side so I need to see how they move.”
At present, he is in Australia where India are scheduled to play three-match One Day International (ODI) series, starting on January 12.
