The social media post by Gopie that he later removed.

In a post on his page Gopie had this to say:

My name is Rajesh Gopie. Yesterday I responded to a video posted on social; of a brutal, merciless and cowardly mob murder of an innocent steward at a soccer match. Enraged I lashed out. Later, I realized that I acted in haste, infuriated at the lack of humanity on the part of those who perpetrated the killing. 

It was stupid of me to do so, to say the least! I removed the post and hereby wish to humbly and unreservedly apologize to all for this offence. For those who know me that I would not intentionally hurt the feelings of others but clearly I have in this instance. I ask you to forgive me.
