There’s a petition urging MTV to drop ‘Siesta Key’ cast member who allegedly shot hammerhead shark

A new petition is urging MTV to drop Siesta Key cast member Alex Kompothecras, after a recent video appears to show him firing a couple of shots into the gills of a hammerhead shark from the side of a boat.

“MTV has a long history of glorifying the lifestyles of the rich and famous without much consideration for whether the people they make famous have any sort of moral compass,” says the petition, which was created by Care2Activists. “This behavior cannot be condoned or tolerated, even if the perpetrator is rich and famous.”

As of Thursday morning, the petition has reached 52,092 signatures of its 55,000 goal.

In the video a man can be seen wearing a grey shirt and a “Make America Great Again” hat, the same outfit Kompothecras is seen wearing in a now deleted photo posted to his own Instagram account

The deleted Instagram posts from the cast of MTV’s ‘Siesta Key’ are somehow worse than the show
