An unidentified man, whose video of fat-shaming Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed had went viral on social media, has issued an apology to the 32-year-old. In the video, it looked like the man was trying to take a picture with Sarfaraz Ahmed as the Pakistan skipper obliged. But it later turned out that the man was trying to make a video only to fat-shame Sarfaraz Ahmed, who was present at a mall in the United Kingdom with his family. “Why are you as fat as a pig? You have made Pakistan proud,” the offender told Sarfaraz Ahmed.
