Glenn Maxwell, teammate Dan Christian, and his pregnant partner Jorgia Dunn were subjected to online abuse after their IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore's ouster from the ongoing edition of the lucrative league.
''Great season by RCB, unfortunately, we fell well short of where we thought we should be. Doesn't take away from an amazing season. Some of the garbage that has been flowing on social media is disgusting,'' Maxwell wrote in a post on his Twitter handle.
''We are human beings who are giving out best every day. Try being a decent person maybe instead of spreading abuse,'' he added.
Maxwell's statement came after perennial underachievers RCB crashed out of the T20 league after losing by four wickets to Kolkata Knight Riders in the eliminator here on Monday night.
The star Australian all-rounder thanked the ''real fans'' for their love and support during RCB's journey this season.
''Thank you to the REAL fans that shared love and appreciation for the players giving their all. Unfortunately, there are some horrible people out there that make social media a horrible place to be. It is unacceptable. Please don't be like them,'' he added.
Christian scored only nine runs and went wicket-less with the ball, conceding 29 runs from 1.4 overs at an economy rate of 17.40.
