Daren Sammy spoke about how his former teammate addressed him as ‘Kalu’. The man being a good sportsperson said that he’s sure it came from a place of love after he learned that the said word is actually a racial slur.

Actress Swara Bhasker was one of the first celebrities to stand in support of the cricketer. Taking to her Twitter she said, “Dear @darensammy88 if someone used the N word at a black person & said they “operated from a place of love” what would u say? Same with word ‘Kaalu’ & it’s variations. And team members of @SunRisers. Show some decency & spine #SaySorryToDaren officially ! #thatsnotcricket @IPL”

Daren Sammy replied to her tweet and said, “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”
