Arnold Schwarzenegger Slammed For Appearing Via Video Link At His Own £84-A-Ticket Show
| Last updated
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been slammed by fans for only appearing via video link at his own £84-a-ticket show. Watch his apology below:
Fans were fuming as he promised them that he would be at the Arnold Sport Festival at Birmingham's NEC.
However, he pulled out at the last minute and was due to take part in a live in-person Q&A.
In the 74-year-old's defence, he tweeted that his doctor has advised him not to go to the show.
He tweeted: "I am very upset I cannot make it because of my leg condition.
"I injured my leg, my foot, my calf.
"The doctor told me not to travel.
"So I'm sorry about that.
"I'm going to beam in every so often during the weekend.
"You're going to see me on screen.
"So I'm looking forward to coming next year in 2022.
"I will be there."
On the other hand, you can see why the fans are frustrated at forking out 84 quid for a Zoom call.
One user raged: "'You deliberately waited till the last minute to announce this, SHAME ON YOU!!!!
"Will be getting a full refund."
Another added: What! Paid £84 to see you on a screen!?"
However a third was more understanding writing: "Such a shame, was looking forward to seeing you. Speedy recovery with the leg, see you in 2022," along with a biceps emoji.
Despite the absence of the former Mr Universe, there were star studded guests, such as Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren (Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago).
Stallone and Dolph are appearing again as Rocky and Drago in a new director's cut of Rocky 4, with 40 minutes of unseen footage, which sounds pretty cool.
Sly, Dolph and Arnold are currently filming the upcoming Expendables 4 in the UK.
Stallone helped create the movie franchise, featuring a group of old-school muscle men led by Sly's character Barney Ross.
Actors including Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Ronda Rousey, Bruce Willis, and Jean-Claude Van Damme have all featured in the smash-hit films.
