Pakistan-origin British boxer Amir Khan has been a recent victim of online trolls and was stumped by the hateful reactions he got for posting Christmas wishes on his social media platforms.

Boxer a day ahead of Christmas posted a photo along with his wife and kids in “Christmas outfits”. “Wishing you a magical and blissful holiday! Merry Christmas #khanfamily @FaryalxMakhdoom #MerryChrismas,” Amir Khan captioned the post.

However, his post did not go down well with his fans and followers. And the boxer drew a lot of criticism for celebrating the Christian festival despite being a Muslim.

Later, former light-welterweight world champion once again took to social media responding to “all the hate”.

Amir Khan tweeted, “So shocked by all the hate I’m getting on my Twitter & Instagram for wishing everyone Merry Christmas and posting a picture with my family in Christmas outfits. Just want to tell those people ‘I don’t give a f**k’.”

The 33-year old hopes to return the professional circuit in 2020.
