Former Indian skipper Yuvraj Singh has been making a lot of news lately, however, for all the controversial reasons. While the whole world is currently battling with the dangerous Coronavirus pandemic, there are countries that are vulnerable and don’t have medical facilities like the other developed countries.
Recently, in an effort to help the ‘lesser fortunate’ countries like Pakistan, Yuvraj Singh took to his social media and shared a video message for his fans, where he urged everyone to contribute to our neighboring country to help them fight the battle with dangerous Coronavirus. In his Tweet, he extended his support to his cricketer friend Shahid Afridi. Yuvraj wrote:
“These are testing times, it’s time to lookout for each other specially the ones who are lesser fortunate. Lets do our bit, I am supporting @SAfridiOfficial & @SAFoundationN in this noble initiative of covid19. Pls donate on http://donatekarona.com #StayHome @harbhajan_singh,”

As soon as his tweet caught eyes, people on social media started slamming the cricketer for asking everyone to help Pakistan, while that country continues to deny treatment for minorities living there. Twitterati are slamming him left, right and center for his Tweet.
On Wednesday, Yuvraj Singh took to his Twitter and shared a long note, where he expressed his disappointment over how his Tweet was ‘blown out of proportion’. In his tweet, he said that he is an Indian and will always bleed blue but he will always choose to stand for humanity as well. He wrote:
“I really don’t understand how a msg to help the most vulnerable gets blown out of proportion! All I tried to achieve via that msg was to help ppl in our respective countries by providing healthcare, my intention was not to hurt anyone’s feelings. I’m an Indian and I will always bleed blue and will always stand for humanity. Jai Hind.”
