The father of the American and Chelsea star revealed that Christian Pulisic received death threats for a social media video involving a giant grouper.
Last week, while on vacation in Florida, Pulisic saw that an Instagram photo he uploaded went viral on the Internet and made headlines.
The 22-year-old young man filmed a stunt on a boat above an endangered fish, and was subsequently criticized by environmentalists and animal rights organizations.
In a related video, someone saw Pulisic juggling on a giant grouper-the most common giant saltwater fish in the waters off the east coast of America.
The Chelsea winger who helped the Blues win the Champions League in the 2020-21 season eventually lost control of the ball and fell over the fish, who was clearly struggling under his weight before he was pulled back into the boat.
A self-funded volunteer pressure group called the Blue Planet Association is committed to ending the overexploitation of the world’s oceans. It reposted Pulisic’s video on Twitter with the text: “Abusing threatened social media videos Goliath grouper is a new behavior. Low.”

The Chelsea striker’s father told Alex Goldberg’s YouTube channel The Byline: “He shut down Twitter this season, but he knows what happened after a bad game and its severity. He Not much to see.
“What hurts him even more is the cancellation of culture. If he wants to post something on the Internet and the idiot hides behind the computer. People are just waiting for hatred because of jealousy. This makes him even more troubled.
“Whether it’s about guns or fishing and hooks in fish mouths. He didn’t even realize it, but he just wanted to have fun.
“This is the most absurd thing. Christian is such an animal lover. He has horses and he doesn’t want to see animals getting hurt. Unfortunately, he received death threats and people said they wanted him in prison.
“People don’t need to wait for the notorious person to do something wrong. It’s stupid. If you want to say he played badly, then do it.
“But if you don’t know Christian, or what happened on the boat? Just shut your mouth.”
