Report: Jimmy John’s Trophy Hunting CEO Sparks Outrage And Boycott

Report: Jimmy John’s Trophy Hunting CEO Sparks Outrage And Boycott August 25, 2019

#JimmyJohnsBoycott: A photo of Jimmy John’s trophy hunting CEO goes viral and sparks outrage on the internet.

AOL reports:

Social media users are calling for a boycott of Jimmy John’s after controversial photos of the fast-food sandwich chain’s CEO resurfaced online Friday. 

USA Today reports:

The hashtag #BoycottJimmyJohns was trending Friday with calls for a boycott of the sandwich restaurant, after a photo of the company’s founder and Jimmy John Liautaud with an elephant he killed resurfaced.

The viral photo of company founder and CEO Jimmy John Liautaud smiling while posing with a dead elephant is several years old, yet manages to capture the cruelty, cowardice, and inhumanity of the despicable trophy hunter in a powerful and disturbing fashion.

The following is a sample of the reactions via Twitter under the hashtag #JimmyJohnsBoycott:

 

Those who would try to defend the immoral act of trophy hunting claim that it is a necessary evil, and that the trophy hunters, by paying large fees to guides and governments for the perverse pleasure of killing an animal for sport, are somehow helping conservation efforts. This is false.

Research shows that it is a myth that trophy hunting supports wildlife conservation. The fact is, trophy hunting does not help conservation efforts, although those who defend the cowardly sport often make claims to the contrary.  

Make no mistake, trophy hunting is for immoral cowards with too much money and too little self-esteem. There is nothing brave or noble about killing exotic animals for sport. In fact, there is no “sport” in trophy hunting. Such activity is a perverse pursuit, and has no place in a civilized society.

Bottom line: Jimmy John’s CEO Jimmy John Liautaud, like all trophy hunters, is a deplorable human being, and should be shamed and mocked for taking perverse pleasure in the death and suffering of another animal: #JimmyJohnsBoycott.
