Auckland (New Zealand), April 1 (ANI): Rapper Scribe's tweets that critically injured New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder may have been responsible for the vicious attack on him last week, has been rubbished by Ryder's manager Aaron Klee.
Interacting with media at Wellington Airport, Klee said comments made by Rapper Scribe were of no concern to him or to the Ryder family.
He said that 28-year-old Jesse was making good progress four days after being attacked outside the Merivale bar, Aikmans.
Klee further said that Jesse is now working on regaining his strength, and was now talking, sitting and having conversations.
According to stuff.co.nz, Scribe, whose real name is Malo Luafutu, tweeted to his 4226 followers at the weekend: "I'd like to know what Jesse Ryder did or said. Cantabrians don't beat people up for no reason #Crusader." (sic)
He followed this hours later by two more tweets.
"I'm not making excuses I genuinely would like to know what started the whole thing. No-one gets beaten up for nothing." (sic)
"But if you come to chch and act a certain way and are not humble and start looking for trouble .. u will find it." (sic)
Twitter users were quick to jump to Ryder's defence. (ANI)
