Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi faced criticism by Twitterati after he shared pictures of a lion chained at his Karachi resident.
Afridi shared a picture of his daughter striking his Boom-Boom pose and another where he was hand feeding a baby deer. In the background is a chained lion that is also kept by the Afridi family. "Best feeling in the world to have my daughter copy my wicket taking celebrations. And yes don't forget to take care of animals, they too deserve our love and care," said the Tweet.
Great to spend time with loved ones. Best feeling in the world to have my daughter copy my wicket taking celebrations. And yes don't forget to take care of animals, they too deserve our love and care :) pic.twitter.com/CKPhZd0BGD— Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) June 9, 2018
The Twitter users, however, did not take it lightly.
I’m absolutely appalled with what #ShahidAfridi is doing. You can’t keep a #lion out of its natural habitat all chained up & then claim that u r loving animals. The lion looks weak & so done with life. I feel so bad for it. #PETA #AnimalRights #cricket #Pakistan pic.twitter.com/IiphTknlhX— Tyga (@qt_spicyy) June 9, 2018
