The controversy between Marlon Samuels and Ben Stokes is not ending. The things started with a statement from the latter about his quarantine and took an ugly turn as both the cricketers took to social media to post things about each other. Now, Samuels has posted a new picture on his Instagram account to put the spotlight on Ben Stokes’ ‘Nightclub fight’.
Notably, the English all-rounder was involved in a scuffle outside a night club in 2017. He was out with England teammate Alex Hales celebrating the team’s win over West Indies in the third ODI played on 24th September 2017. It was reported that Ben Stokes punched a guy to make him unconscious outside the nightclub and the same was captured in the CCTV camera.
Samuels posted two pictures of the same footage and wrote, “Ben (Stokes) says he wouldn’t wish whatever on is worst enemy Marlon Samuels people I am sorry how could I reacted to such a sweet comment coming from Ben.”
“Hello people is this your sweet little ben that can’t live without calling my name dam I don’t believe ben would do this shit lies he’s such a nice guy plus he only tells me lovely stuff on the cricket field things I would never talk because I am a boss and he’s just sweet guy lol,” he added.
The series of events in Ben Stokes-Marlon Samuels feud
The controversy started with Ben Stokes’ light-hearted comments about how bad he felt during the quarantine. He said that he was explaining to his brother how bad was the quarantine in that government hotel and his brother asked, “You wouldn’t even do that to Marlon Samuels?”
And Stokes replied, ‘No, it’s that bad’, — that’s how tough it was.” Although Stokes’ comments were lighthearted, Samuels seemingly did not appreciate the banter. In response, Samuels posted an explosive harangue on Instagram, in which he appears to make sexual remarks about Stokes’ wife.
“No white boy could diss me in the sports and no get back diss look at this b***h still thinking about me give me 14 days with you wife turn her into Jamaican in 14 seconds mate none of yall knows me that simply means it’s my f***ing superior skin tone yall hate f*** you,” Samuels posted on Tuesday.
