Ian Wright has extended an olive branch to Stan Collymore despite his despicable comments.
Wright has once again shown himself to be the bigger man with this reaction:
.I’m sending you this olive branch @StanCollymore because in my heart I have love for you. We go back to far for this ridiculous spat to continue! I understand that in life our actions and decisions can cost us dearly. But there is, if you want it,redemption for everyone. ❤️

The argument started when Collymore criticised Wright and others in an interview with the Guardian.
“To be a black pundit you either need to be a comedian like Chris Kamara or Ian Wright – guys who have big pearly-white smiles and everyone loves laughing at – or Jermaine Jenas and Alex Scott, who are completely inoffensive,” Collymore said.
Wright responded by tweeting Collymore, cc-ing in the other targets of Collymore’s words:

That caused Collymore to lash out, calling Wright “the epitome of a Tom” and a “c***”.
