Alex Hales issues apology over ‘blackface’ images

England cricketer Alex Hales who hs been in the discussion point of view since Yorkshire player Azeem Rafiq has accused him of racism, has released a video on his social media and apoligised.

Hales in an Instagram video admitted he was ‘foolish’ to dress up as rapper Tupac Shakur and says his 20s were “filled with mistakes”.

After Rafiq accusation, Hales released a statement on November 17, saying, “Having heard the allegations made against me, I categorically and absolutely deny there was any racial connotation in the naming of my dog.”

“It was incredibly reckless and foolish on my behalf so I want to apologised for that and apologise to the club for the embarrassment it would have caused them.

“I guess my 20s were full of mistakes like that, reckless mistakes off the field that cost me and let down family, let down teammates, let down friends, close relationships I had during my 20s, and I guess some of those decisions I will regret for the rest of my life.”

Hales last played for England in 2019 and after he was ignored for a spot in the World Cup 15 he was never seen in the national colours.
