Josh Dugan and one of the messages he posted on a social media site. Photo: InstagramTroubled former NSW Origin star Josh Dugan has apologised for his behaviour on social media and claims he has been abused since posting a photo of himself and Canberra teammate Blake Ferguson drinking on the roof of Ferguson’s house.
Dugan, who was sacked by the Raiders after the incident, told a Canberra fan to ”end yourself” after becoming embroiled in a slanging match with two Instagram users late on Saturday night after he posted a photo of himself and a friend with their shirts off. The pair – one named @gearbox82 and another named @mark-raider1 – criticised Dugan over the way he was sacked by the Raiders, the fact he split up from his pregnant partner and claimed Reece Robinson was a better option at fullback.
”haha righto Marky Mark: go get another Raiders Tattoo then end yourself,” Dugan wrote. ”Your mrs is hot too … send her my way ill show her the time of her life.”
After jeopardising his career, Dugan posted an apology on Twitter but claimed there were two sides to every story ”and only the bad side of my story has been told over the last few weeks”.
”Yes, I stuffed up and, yes, I’m paying my price, but people go on and on about bullying when I am constantly being harassed for simply putting a photo up,” Dugan wrote.
”I apologise to those who I had bad words with but I am a normal person like anyone else.
”Media can write what they want but have not spoken to me personally or seen the abuse I have copped.
”Life goes on and I’m trying to move forward with my life and career.”
Dugan won support from former Canberra teammate Travis Waddell, who now plays for Newcastle, South Sydney winger Nathan Merritt and Wallabies five-eighth Quade Cooper, who tweeted: ”head up brother. Things happen for a reason. In your corner if you ever need anything bro”.
