West Ham has lost the support of a second sponsor following the release of a video showing Kurt Zouma kicking his cat.
Experience Kissimmee, the tourism partner of the club has withdrawn their support. This was disclosed in a recent tweet by the company.
The tourist board’s decision comes after Vitality announced it would suspend its sponsorship of West Ham with “immediate effect”.

“Experience Kissimmee announced today that it has ended its sponsorship of West Ham United Football Club,” the club’s destination partner said in a tweet. Since the video went viral, Experience Kissimmee had been evaluating its relationship with West Ham and decided today.
Recall that the club’s fitness and wellness partner, Vitality ended their sponsorship earlier, saying, the club’s response to the video was a “huge disappointment”.
West Ham had fined Zouma two weeks’ pay of £250,000 and the player has lost his Adidas footwear sponsorship. He is also likely to face a four-year jail term in France while his pets have been taken into custody by RSPCA, an international charity organization.
The backlash of the defender over the video continues to surge even as he has tendered an apology.

“I want to apologize for my actions. There are no excuses for my behaviour, which I sincerely regret. I also want to say how deeply sorry I am to anyone who was upset by the video.
“I would like to assure everyone that our two cats are perfectly fine and healthy. They are loved and cherished by our entire family, and this behaviour was an isolated incident that will not happen again,” Zouma said.
