Rajasthan Royals have fired their social media team after a tweet on Sanju Samson was not taken lightly by the skipper.
Samson was mocked by RR’s official Twitter handle and it was a distasteful tweet with Samson photoshopped as a girl while sitting in a bus.
Samson got furious and slammed the franchise. He quote retweeted the post and wrote: “Its ok for friends to do all this but teams should be professional.”
Sanju was referring to teammate Yuzvendra Chahal, who has been posting such images of cricketers on his social media handles.
RR admin crossed the line and the entire team had to pay the price.
In a statement released by RR, they said, “In light of today’s events, we will be making changes to our approach and team on social media. Everything is well within the squad ahead of the first game as the boys prepare for SRH. The management will revisit our overall digital strategy and appoint a new team in due course.
“We realise that it is the IPL season and fans want the account to post updates regularly. We will find temporary solutions in the interim.”
