Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has been enjoying his holidays but has now found himself at the centre of a storm involving a goliath grouper.

Pulisic has been criticised by the Blue Planet Society after a video of him went viral on social media over the weekend, as he sat on a boat, juggling a ball over one of the giant fish, which was held on a line.

Pulisic lost control of the ball in an embarrassing fashion and fell into the water, on top of the fish, which struggled as a result.

Blue Planet Society, a volunteer pressure group campaigning to end the overexploitation of the world’s ocean, didn’t take Pulisic’s act lightly, and made it known to him.

They took to their twitter account to respond to Pulisic’s account: “Abusing a threatened goliath grouper for a social media video is a new low.”
