Sammy was quick to respond to Swara.
“Don’t get me wrong I’m not condoning what was done/said. I’m saying let’s use this opportunity to educate each other so it doesn’t happen again. One can only apologize if he/she feels wrong about something. I’m confident&proud to be black. That will never change,” his response read.
Sammy had earlier claimed that he was referred to as ‘Kalu’ by one of his teammates during the IPL, when he was part of the SRH franchise.
