Hasbulla’s rough handling of his cat Barsik has the internet up in arms, demanding both his cancellation and the rescue of his furry companion.
Russian social media star and UFC personality Hasbulla Magomedov recently came under fire after a video of him allegedly abusing his pet cat, Barsik, went viral. In the distressing footage, Hasbulla is seen pulling Barsik’s ear and striking the animal’s head, sparking outrage among viewers who noticed the cat’s apparent discomfort and distress due to its owner’s aggressive behavior.
The incident took place on March 29th, 2023, when the video was shared widely on social media platforms. The video quickly caught the attention of users who condemned Hasbulla’s actions, with some even calling for the rescue of Barsik.
In response to the backlash, the Dagestani influencer claimed that he only scolded his cat for being disobedient, asserting that he is being unfairly targeted by people who are making a mountain out of a molehill.
As the video continues to circulate, public opinion remains heavily against Hasbulla, with many users expressing their disappointment in his actions and demanding that he take responsibility for his behavior. While some fans have attempted to defend the influencer, the majority of reactions are negative, with many people expressing concern for Barsik’s welfare.
Despite Hasbulla’s response, it remains to be seen what the ultimate outcome of the situation will be. If authorities decide to investigate the matter, Hasbulla could face penalties for animal cruelty under Russian law.
Alternatively, public pressure may lead to Hasbulla taking steps to ensure Barsik’s safety and wellbeing. In any case, the controversy surrounding the video has undeniably damaged Hasbulla’s reputation and generated significant concern for the welfare of his pet cat, Barsik.
