On Friday, the hashtag #BoycottJimmyJohns was trending on Twitter after actor Mark Hamill and several others retweeted a post from user @yossarian317 featuring an old photograph of Jimmy John’s sandwich company owner Jimmy John Liautaud posing with a dead elephant:

@yossarian317’s original tweet, which was from April and appears to have been deleted, had accumulated over 30,000 “likes” and been retweeted more than 35,400 times. Hamill’s tweet, which states: “Thumbs up to a boycott of all @jimmyjohns restaurants! (with apologies for posting this obscene photo)” has over 85,000 “likes” and 26,800 retweets.

The article goes on to state the following:

Kelvin Peña (@BrotherNature), an internet personality famous for his photo and video content with animals, also retweeted the @yossarian317 tweet from April, and suggested boycotting Jimmy John’s. His tweet has been “liked” and retweeted a combined 423,000 times as of publication.

Some of the photographs of Jimmy John Liautaud were taken on a hunting trip facilitated by Johan Calitz Safaris in 2010, according to Snopes. Other records have Liautaud game-hunting as far back as 2002. The photos resurface every few years, often sparking backlash against Liautaud and his sandwich chain.

    An old photo, maybe, but the strong sense of abhorrence elicited for the purely a elf-gratifying killing of a beautiful endangered species does not get old, nor should it! Does it matter less because it happened years ago? No. You reap what you sow, and may this man’s reprehensible misdeed cast the longest of shadows that he may never get out from beneath it! #SoullessHusk

    There isn’t a good reason at all for trophy hunting, except it may make the rich feel entitled..it doesn’t matter what political party you are from as some made reference to, it’s just wrong

      There actually is a reason, usually these animals are unusually hostile and/or very old. In this case, the hunter went through all proper channels and processes, and the meat from the kill went to local villages.

    If you do your research you will find that the animals killed in those hunting expeditions are sick and dying anyways.. the money people spend to hunt them actually funds programs that provide safe, natural habitats to keep young and healthy animals alive and thriving. Each animal killed in these legal hunts actually saves the lives of hundreds more animals now and countless more in the future thanks to these protected habitats 100% funded by the hunters themselves.

        Interesting to think I would’ve said the same about the Right. The Left and true Centrists are much more into looking into all of the facts before making decisions.
