As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by The Daily Wire:
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.
Only jerks give two thumbs up after murdering a peaceful animal in their home.
This is the CEO of @JimmyJohns over the body of an elephant he killed.
