A French law student is receiving death threats after modeling for a streaming service that specializes in hunting and fishing.
The model claims she is getting death threats after modeling for Zone 300, the streaming service, in addition to sharing “her passion” on social media.
Johanna Clermont, the “hunting influencer” is now getting threatened thanks to the new ubiquity of her social media, as well as ads and posters in promoting the service.
Clermont has also been featured in multiple news outlets, including The Telegraph and the Daily Mail.
Animal rights activists are criticizing Clermont for hunting and sharing photos of her kills. Anti-hunting activists are vocal in their criticism.
Hunters don’t seem pleased with Clermont’s influencer style either. Martine Pion, president of the National Association of Female Hunting (l’Association Nationale de La Chasse au Féminin) told the Telegraph, ” We don’t share the same way of seeing things.
To be a spokesmodel and remain independent seem difficult to me. So the guys find her pretty, fine.
I’m perhaps gullible but our cause is not about looks.”
Clermont has shared posts to her over 300,000 Instagram followers, showing her hunting around the world and showing off her kills and guns. A hunter since she was 16, her image is now used in billboards and ads across Paris to promote the streaming platform. Clermont seems non-plussed with the criticism, “Pissing off people is my second passion,” she says.
