I am extremely sorry for my ignorant action last Friday. Being an ardent fan of many years, I was deeply engrossed and caught up in the game. clearly did not realize the racial undertone.
For this, I am deeply regretful. I cannot begin to imagine how much I have hurt your sentiments.
Racism has absolutely no place in my heart, and I promise you, for whatever it’s worth, going forward this will never happen again.
I hope the club can accept my humblest apology and give me the opportunity to make amends. I promise to be very responsible from here on,” Gupta wrote in her letter.
