On Monday, another season for Royal Challengers Bangalore came to an end on a disappointing note. Kolkata Knight Riders managed to knock RCB out of the IPL 2021 after defeating them in Eliminator 1 by 4 wickets. With this loss, Virat Kohli’s stint as the skipper of RCB also came to an end.
It was a massive loss, especially for the Virat Kohli fans who were left devastated to see Virat ending his captaincy stint trophy-less. And soon the disappointment turned into rage. Fans took to their social media to express their disappointment and were seen trolling Dan Christian, who was made the villain of the loss. However, things turned ugly when a section of ‘toxic’ people attacked Christian’s pregnant partner on her Instagram page.
Yes, you read that right. Over the years, we have witnessed toxic fans abusing and threatening the family members of cricketers after their favorite franchise has incurred a loss. It was yet another day for the shameless troll, who attacked Christian’s pregnant partner.
Here, check out the screenshot of some of the shameful comments:
As the toxic comments kept pouring in on their Instagram page, Dan Christian was forced to intervene in between. Christian took to his Instagram story and requested the ‘toxic’ people to leave his partner out in this. He wrote:
“Check out the comments section of my partner’s Instagram post. I didn’t have a great game tonight, but that’s sport. However please leave her out of it,”

While there were many who made a villain out of him and were making his life difficult, on the other hand, many fans came out in support of him after this unpleasant incident.

Dan Christian had to put up a story to stop abuses for his pregnant wife from few Kohli fanbois. That’s how disgusting they were. Pathetic fanbase for a reason! #RCB

Last year, it was Ziva. This year it’s Dan Christian’s pregnant partner, who is receiving abuses and threats. The toxic fans keep achieving a new low every season. ?#CricketTwitter
