Siddharth subtle cock saina nehwal comment

Siddharth took to social media to issue an open apology for his rude remark on Saina Nehwal. He called her the ‘subtle cock champion of the world’ after she tweeted about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security breach. After receiving backlash, Siddharth has now apologised to her.

Siddharth wrote, “Dear Saina, I want to apologise to you for my rude joke that I wrote as a response to a tweet of yours a few days ago. I may disagree with you on many things, but even my disappointment or anger when I read your tweet, cannot justify my tone and words. I know I have more grace in me than that. As for the jokeif a joke needs to be explained, then it wasn’t a very good joke to begin with. Sorry about a joke that didn’t land. I, however, must insist my word play and humour had none of the malicious intent that so many people from all quarters have attributed to it. I am a staunch feminist ally and I assure there was no gender implied in my tweet and certainly no intent to attack you as a woman. I hope we can put this behind us and that you will accept my letter. You will always be my Champion. Honestly, Siddharth.”
