It is quite probable by now that you have heard about Vinnie Jones’ controversial Twitter post which caused a massive backlash from animal rights activists and many members of the public. In the aftermath of this post having since been deleted, Jones had claimed his Twitter was hacked and that the image in question was unrelated to him.

Since Jones’ post went up, the ex-footballer has faced heavy criticism with one particular article written by Alex Matthews for the Mail Online being shared more than 120,000 times.
