The feud between Marlon Samuels and Shane Warne is not ending anytime soon. After Marlon Samuels lashed out at Ben Stokes over his supposed ‘joke’ on the quarantine, Samuels also tagged Shane Warne. In response, Warne labelled Marlon Samuels an ‘ordinary cricketer’ and told him to ‘get some help’. Now, the feud has escalated with Samuels targeting Warne over his face surgery and further abusing him. On his official Instagram handle, Samuels lashed out at the former Australia legspinner. Prior to this, he had also hurled abuses at former England skipper Michael Vaughan for his support to Ben Stokes, calling it over-reaction to a banter.
In his latest response, Samuels hit back at Shane Warne and he also added a hypothetical situation where Warne is having a conversation with his daughter by saying, “Haha I need help is this coming from the first cricketer to do a face surgery to look young. Doc, can I use the skin from my belly doc no warny mate we must use the skin from you’re a** batty face boy calm down,” Samuels wrote on Instagram.
About a couple of days back, Samuels trolled a news article which reported what Vaughan had said about ‘stamping out racism’. Boasting about the amount of money in his disposal, the veteran batsman spoke about his fragrance brand named Sextillion, which according to him is making a lot of money.
Fiery rivalry becomes personal
Ben Stokes and Marlon Samuels have had a fiery relationship on the field during England and West Indies clashes with the duo often engaging in heated confrontations. However, the rivalry between Ben Stokes and Marlon Samuels took an ugly turn when the West Indies all-rounder abused Ben Stokes and targeted his wife. He also added a ‘racial’ undertone to his abuse. It all started when Ben Stokes posted on his Instagram stories about the travails of the quarantine that he had to undergo in Auckland and Dubai when he came from New Zealand to the UAE for the IPL.
On the TMS does IPL podcast, Ben Stokes said, “You get off the plane, get your bag, walk out and get told what hotel to go to. There’s no choice, it’s pot luck whether you get a good hotel or not. The government have chosen certain hotels to be the quarantine hotels. I posted a few Instagram stories and some of the England boys were messaging me asking what it’s like and I was saying it wasn’t the most enjoyable thing you ever have to do, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. I text my brother saying the same thing, and my brother asked: ‘You wouldn’t even do that to Marlon Samuels?’ I said ‘no, it’s that bad’ – that’s how tough it was.”
Although the comment is supposedly in jest, it has not gone down well with Marlon Samuels who abused Stokes, as well as former Australia legend and current Rajasthan Royals mentor Shane Warne on Instagram by stating, “no white boy could diss me in the sports and no get back diss look at this b*tch still thinking about me give me 14 days with you wife turn har into Jamaican in 14 seconds mate none of yall knows me that simple means it’s my f***ing superior skin tone. icc cricketing world ben b*tch stokes Shane b*tch warn and a few b*tch west Indians cricketers who sell out sextillion7thpower Ps nothing to f*ck with my army bigger and we richer,” Samuels wrote in an expletive-ridden tirade.
