Controversial Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke just became even more controversial in the UK for non-Arsenal reasons. (Kroenke also owns the Los Angeles Rams, and his family owns majority stakes in the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche.)

Kroenke started a UK-based outdoors channel called My Outdoor TV, which features big-game hunting shows and hunters killing endangered species.

From the Evening Standard.

“In one programme a man can be seen shooting a lion, saying: ‘This is the most exciting hunt I have ever been on.’

“In another, a presenter kills a critically endangered African elephant, saying: ‘There’s no other feeling in the world quite like walking up on your bull elephant.’

The visuals are even worse.

A petition to get Kroenke to sell his shares of Arsenal because of the channel already has over 9,000 signatures on Change.org.

Perhaps Kroenke can find an American partner for his show. I know of one person who would be very eager.
