West Ham: Kurt Zouma

West Ham defender Kurt Zouma has apologized after a video emerged of him kicking his cat across the kitchen floor. The video was obtained by the Sun newspaper and also includes him slapping the cat in the face. It was filmed by his brother Yoan and is said to have been posted on Snapchat after their game against Kidderminster in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

“I also want to say how deeply sorry I am to anyone who was upset by the video,” West Ham defender Kurt Zouma said. “I would like to assure everyone that our two cats are perfectly fine and healthy. They are loved and cherished by our entire family, and this behavior was an isolated incident that will not happen again.”

“West Ham United unreservedly condemns the actions of our player, Kurt Zouma, in the video that has circulated,” the club said in a statement. “We have spoken to Kurt and will be dealing with the matter internally, but we would like to make it clear that we in no way condone cruelty towards animals.”

“This is a very upsetting video. It’s never acceptable to kick, hit or slap an animal, for punishment or otherwise,” an RSPCA spokesperson said. “We are so grateful to people who report suspected animal suffering to us and we would like to reassure people we will always look into and, if necessary, investigate any complaints made to us about animal welfare.”
