West Ham United forward Michail Antonio has questioned the reaction to teammate Kurt Zouma's cat-kicking incident and asked whether his actions were "worse than racism."

Zouma issued a public apology on Tuesday after a video emerged where the France international can be seen kicking and slapping his family pet.

The 27-year-old later played the full 90 minutes on Tuesday night in West Ham's 1-0 victory over Watford where he was booed by sections of the crowd.
