French defender Kurt Zouma is now in some huge trouble as a video of him kicking his cat went viral. The West Ham player can be seen slapping and kicking his cat in his home. He also chases the cat into his dining room before slapping on the face.
Zouma’s brother, Yoan filmed the clipped and posted it on Snapchat. Reacting to that, many fans believed it is a horrible thing to do, especially with your pets.
Not a cat guy myself but to actually Zidane volley a living creature is a different level of mental illness.
Kurt Zouma you should be utterly ashamed of yourself. Disgrace. pic.twitter.com/J8ZotP8zyR
