Hasbulla says he did nothing wrong.
Just a few days ago, a video of Hasbulla abusing a cat went public, and immediately many took aim at the social media star. Some fighters, including Dan Hooker, said Hasbulla should be canceled while others just wanted to know why the Dagestani native would do something like that and post it.
Now, after all the backlash, Habulla took to Twitter to provide a statement and explained the entire story.
“Those brothers who think that I was beating the cat, pulled the ear, this and that, I pulled the ear gently. I know people are waiting for the moment (to) write something wrong to attack me like this, like, ‘you do this, you do that’. She (Barksik) was misbehaving and I just pulled the ear, that’s it. I love my cat more than you, if I didn’t love the cat, I wouldn’t have it at home. The most lovely animal is a cat and when she disobeyed, I scolded her a little. You are attacking me for nothing,” Hasbulla said in the video.
There are videos of Hasbulla being nice and loving cats as he says, but this was one time when he needed to discipline his cat for doing something wrong. Yet, many are still angry at him for pulling the cat’s ear as it is a defenseless animal and can’t fight back.
After all the backlash, Hasbull also deleted the video from his page but it was screen-recorded several times and the video is still floating around on social media. However, Hasbulla claims he did nothing wrong as he was just disciplining his cat. But, many pet owners claim you need to train them to know what is allowed and not allowed and when they do something wrong you aren’t supposed to hit your pet.
