PETA’s reaction: Ibra coward
But his every utterance, also and above all on social media, has become a pretext to attack and advance accusations of insensitivity towards animals and nature.
In addition to the attacks of individuals on social media, also the PETA – among the most important and prominent associations – expressed clear and explicit condemnation towards the player, as reported by the site:
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic likes to call himself a fierce and strong lion. But the fact that he likes to shoot lions and other animals shows that he is a miserable coward who gives in to his violent tendencies. It takes no skill or strength to corner and slaughter a captive animal. The animal has never had the opportunity to escape, defend or survive. Anyone with a conscience would shudder at the thought of killing animals for fun or exposing parts of their bodies. Ibrahimovic should recognize him and disapprove of the trophy hunt ”, reads a tweet posted on the association’s English account.
