This is extremely disgusting behavior from the fans. Sarfaraz was out with his son and this guy stopped him for a selfie but was actually recording a video.
He compared our captain with a Pi*, how shameful. Very sensible from Sarfaraz to ignore him while he was with his family. pic.twitter.com/BlrTuFvfUB

The way Sarfraz Ahmed kept his cool over being called pig in front of his son is just amazing. However, I personally think that he should have kicked his ass in the public. How low we can stoop just in the name of patriotism and cricket?

However, after facing backlash from the entire nation, the man has recently issued another video in which he was seen guilty of his insane behavior. He has rendered a public apology.
During his video message, he has cleared his view point stating that
“He had no intention to share the video on social media as he had deleted the clip and apologized after meeting him, adding that he had no idea how it went viral.”
The man was seen repenting upon his words. He said that his actions and language has “really hurt him.”
Here’s the video clip of the man apologizing to Sarfraz and nation,
Well, this is not for the first time that Sarfraz was questioned about his fat belly and fitness, this has become the trend of our young generation to poke fingers at others.
Everybody has his self-esteem. Rather than harassing them in the public, we must respect our national heroes. They are the future of pout country. I hope his apology is accepted by the public and yes by Sarfraz.
