With not much happening in the cricket world, the cricketers around the world are forced to spend their time indoors with their families. In normal circumstances, cricketers would have been locking their horns with each other in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League, which has now been suspended because of the dangerous Coronavirus pandemic.
Indian sensational bowler Yuzvendra Chahal, amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, he has been doing all sorts of activities, from making funny TikTok videos to hosting interactive sessions on his social media. He has been spending most of his time on social media in order to pass his time.
Lately, a video has been going viral on social media, where Yuvraj Singh and Rohit Sharma can be seen amidst a live Instagram interaction. In the video, Yuvraj Singh can be heard trolling Yuzvendra Chahal over his TikTok videos, which have become one of the most talked-about things amongst the Indian cricketers. However, while trying to troll Yuzvendra Chahal, Yuvraj Singh insults him by calling him a ‘Bhangi’.
Yes, you read it right. In the video, Yuvraj Singh and Rohit Sharma can be seen jokingly discussing the TikTok videos of Yuzvendra Chahal, when Yuvraj says “ye bhangi logo ke pass aur koi kaam nahi hai”.
Here, watch the video:

The video has been making rounds on social media with netizens coming up with mixed reactions on it. While the comments have not gone well with the majority of people on social media, who are slamming the cricketer left, right and center for his comments, on the other hand, Yuvraj Singh’s fans have come out in support of him.
Here, check out how twitterati are reacting on this:
Yuvraj said 'bhangi' to chahal in live with rohit sharma
The word Yuvraj used for chahal was wrong.

Hey @YUVSTRONG12 , is this your upbringing to use castiest abusive word Bh***i ? And laugh at it? What if your kids also learn this?
Hey @ImRo45 , you laughed at it when Yuvi says it? Shame on you both.

I understand that he should not have used the term but he never meant to hurt anybody's sentiments. I m not sure if he even knows the meaning of the term. There r many who use the term n don't know what it means.
Also, people should stop being so dramatic
