But he has now had to defend himself after being accused of some unpleasant behaviour towards one of his pets, who is named Barsik.

Hasbulla has been accused of pulling his cat’s ear and also punching the animal in a now-deleted clip from his YouTube channel.

Since the footage has been made public, the influencer has received a wave of backlash, with some calling for him to have his promotional deal with the UFC cancelled.

Hasbulla has now issued a response on Twitter.

In the video, which is captioned ‘For everyone asking me without the full picture’, Hasbulla explains: “Those brothers who think that I was beating the cat, pulled the ear this and that, I pulled the ear gently.

“And I know that people are waiting for the moment, if I write something wrong, to just attack me like this. Like, ‘you do this, you do that’.

“She [Barsik] was misbehaving and I just pulled the ear and that’s it. I love my cat more than you. If I didn’t love the cat, I wouldn’t have it at home.

“My most lovely animal is a cat. And when she disobeyed, I scolded her a little. And you are attacking me for nothing.”

The video has been met with a mixed reception, with some praising the viral star for apologising and explaining the situation.

One person says: “Hasbulla loves cats. Hasbulla is a very loving and kind person. Please don’t judge only by that short video.”

“We got your back king,” expresses another fan.

A third person adds: “In this space, the hate is quick to come without context and the love feels so far off. We are here for you fam.”

Someone else pens: “No need to apologise king.”

However, others are continuing to criticise Hasbulla and are calling for his actions to have consequences.

One person says: “My only criterion is that cats don’t learn from it. You only make her nervous and afraid of you in general.”

“You don’t discipline animals in a physical way. Plain and simple. Your actions are not justifiable,” slams a second.
