You know what they say, "A digital footprint lasts forever". And former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli experienced just that on Wednesday, much to his dismay.

The controversial former sportsman was in the news yet again because of a series of abusive tweets written about commentators Navjot Singh Sidhu, Ramiz Raja and Shoaib Akhtar.

From saying hateful things about "taking money for commentary" to saying abusive things about countries, Kambli had a lot of nasty things to say about the Indian Premiere League (IPL), and one-day matches.

Later, however, Kambli deleted the offensive tweets and apologised, claiming that a "friend" had posted those tweets and that he had since "fired" him.

But this bizarre apology landed him in more trouble, with the social media going bonkers over his statement of "firing" his friend.
