Australian hotel apologizes, fires employees who checked in Virat Kohli’s room

The Australian hotel the Indian cricket team were staying at during their T20 World Cup matches, Crown Towers Perth, released a statement after their employees invaded Virat Kohli’s privacy and filmed his hotel room . The hotel apologized and evicted the perpetrators from its premises, promising to ensure that such an incident would not happen again.

On Monday, Kohli shared a video recorded by Crown employees titled “King Kohli’s Hotel Room” to his Instagram, saying how disturbed he was about the invasion of his privacy. The hotel issued an apology the same day, according to a copy of the statement available with The Indian Express. “We unreservedly apologize to the guest involved and will continue to take the necessary steps to ensure this remains an isolated incident,” it read. “Crown took immediate action to resolve the issue. Those involved were removed from their positions and removed from the Crown account, and the original video was quickly removed from the social media platform.

Hotel management said an investigation is ongoing with the third-party contractor and will take all necessary steps to ensure an incident of this nature does not happen again. “We are also cooperating with the Indian cricket team and the International Cricket Council to convey our apologies to them and will continue to work with them as we progress with the investigation,” they said.

The ICC also released a statement on the matter saying it was “incredibly disappointed by the gross invasion of privacy” Kohli had suffered. “We continue to work with event hotels and security providers to ensure this remains an isolated incident and player privacy is fully respected at all times.”

In the video, the intruders pointed the camera at Kohli’s shoes and personal effects in the room. While Kohli appreciates fans being happy and excited to meet him, he didn’t appreciate that kind of bigotry, saying he felt paranoid about his private life. “If I can’t have privacy in my own hotel room, then where can I really expect personal space??” he asked.
