  • Esha Gupta faces flak for sharing racist comments about Arsenal's Alex Iwobi

Esha Gupta, the brand ambassador of popular football club Arsenal leaves no chance to flaunt her love and fondness for the team.

Gupta, 33, has been heavily criticized for posting a screengrab of a WhatsApp conversation to her 3.4m Instagram followers in which Iwobi was described as "gorilla-faced" and that he "didn't change from Neanderthal to man", in a post which has since been deleted following Arsenal's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United last week.

In the conversation that she shared on her Instagram story, Esha's friend referred Alex Iwobi as a "gorilla" and said that "evolution stopped for him".

As a reply, Esha typed out: "Haha... I honestly dunno why they don't bench him more".

The apology didn't go down well with fans who are calling for her removal as an Arsenal club ambassador. Was bad on my part, being a sports lover. "Sorry guys, forgive the stupidity", she said on Twitter.
