‘Is what he’s done worse than racism?’ – Citi Sports Online

West Ham’s Michail Antonio has questioned the reaction to the Kurt Zouma cat-kicking incident, saying: “Is it worse than players convicted of racism?”.

Zouma’s cats have been taken away by the RSPCA after a disturbing video emerged of him hitting, dropping, and kicking his pet across his kitchen floor on Monday.

The 27-year-old West Ham defender issued an apology but Essex Police confirmed “urgent enquiries” were underway in conjunction with the RSPCA.

West Ham have fined Zouma two weeks wages – understood to be £250,000 – which will be donated to animal welfare charities, while Adidas have dropped the player as a client.

In France, animal rights group the 30 Million Friends Foundation condemned the “heinous act” and called for Zouma to be suspended from the national team.

Asked about the reaction to the Zouma situation, Antonio responded: “I’ve got a question for you. Do you think what he’s done is worse than racism?”
