ANIMAL MISTREATMENT – Timal in turmoil. The rapper from Seine-Saint-Denis, who very recently collaborated with Booba on the title Chameleon, has drawn the wrath of Internet users this Tuesday, August 30. In question ? A video showing him hitting his dog, which he himself posted on Snapchat.
In the sequence in question, the 25-year-old artist first films what appear to be puddles of urine in his home, before violently kicking the frightened animal on the sofa. The images, which can offend, very quickly made the rounds of social networks.

As pointed out The Parisian, this case is reminiscent of that of footballer Kurt Zouma. Earlier this year, the French international was filmed, again on Snapchat, hitting his cat. Having pleaded guilty, he was sentenced to 180 hours of community service. British justice had also prohibited him from acquiring a cat for the next five years.
