Shortly after his injury, fans noticed some people on AFTV were caught celebrating Pulisic going down.
Many fans were critical about AFTV behaving the way they did.
AFTV is short for ArsenalFanTV and shows fans of the team reacting the games live.
This isn’t the first time the platform has gained criticism.
Many within football, including Gunners right-back Hector Bellerin and Gary Neville, have taken issue with the platform over its content, which often includes angry rants and violence among supporters.
Indeed, talkSPORT’s very own Simon Jordan once had it out with Lyle live on air after labelling AFTV ‘drivel’ and claiming ‘it thrives on toxicity, it’s a commercial venture and the guy [Lyle] makes a fortune.’
AFTV was in the news recently following racist comments made by a fan on the platform. Arsenal released a statement on that matter fully distancing themselves saying part, “The platform in question has no official association with Arsenal.”

Kilometers & Kilometers is directed by Jeo Baby. The film has not even released and it has already faced the wrath of piracy. Considering there could be further losses for producer Anto Joseph if the release is delayed, FEUOK permitted it for OTT release. As soon as the statement from FEUOK was released, Aashiq Babu shared it on Facebook and mentioned, “When humans all over the world are fighting to survive a epidemic, the fatwa launched by a bossy organization in Kerala! Poor Anto Joseph has been allowed to be convinced. He got saved. The rest will get the job. Won’t watch the movie theater.
