New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham wakes up to online abuse and disrespectful messages from Indian fans after Australia defeated India in the final of the ICC ODI Men’s World Cup 2023.
Jimmy Neesham posted the screenshot of abusive messages on his Instagram story. New Zealand player posted a hilarious comment along with the screenshot of the message taking a dig at the people for not knowing the difference between Australia and New Zealand.
Australia defeated India with six wickets in the Narendra Modi stadium of Ahmedabad on Sunday 19th November, 2023. Soon after the match, the DMs of Neesham were flooded with abuse and disrespectful messages. In one of his comments, he asked, “What have I missed?”
Through a hilarious meme, he informed his followers that New Zealand and Australia are two different countries. And that it was not New Zealand that defeated India in the final.
On the other hand, Indian fans are also abusing other Australian cricketers and their families including Travis Head and his wife, as well as the wife of Glenn Maxwell.
Indian users posted sexually abusive comments on the picture of the wife of Travis Head on his Instagram account.
Similarly, the wife of Glenn Maxwell, Vini Raman of Indian-Tamil descent, asked Indians to focus on other important matters. She said there is no need to abuse and shame her since she has the right to support the team of her husband and the father of her child.
“Aaaand cue all the hateful vile DMs. Stay classy…can’t believe this needs to be said BUT you can be Indian and also support the country of your birth where you have been raised and more important the team your husband + father of your child plays in.
“take a chill pill and direct that outrage towards more important world issues,” added Vini Raman.
