English pace bowler Stuart Broad on Tuesday said that he did not mean to offend low-paid staffs following an angry reply to a tweet about Britain’s minimum wage.
Stuart Board posted in a recent deleted tweet: “I’ve heard if you earn minimum wage in England you’re in the top 10 percent earners in the world. #stay #humble.”
Given Broad, a senior England player for some years and he earns greatly more than the minimum payment, there were many who took affair with his tweets.
Broad eventually insisted the hashtag was meant as a prompt to himself rather than a general instruction to the public.
He was quoted saying: “Clarifying my earlier tweet, I merely wanted to emphasise my amazement at just how big the world is. No offence meant and sorry if any taken. The hashtag was aimed at myself.”
