Fans on Twitter were quick to call out both Channel 4 and Rasheed Belhasa following Wednesday night’s episode (December 5th) of World’s Weirdest Homes.

The 16-year-old is the son of a billionaire and has his own private zoo in Dubai.

However, the footage of Rasheed with his caged big cats caused an uproar on Twitter, with some even pointing the finger at C4 for showcasing his zoo.

Who is Rasheed Belhasa?

Rasheed Belhasa is the 16-year-old son of UAE construction tycoon, Saif Ahmed Belhasa.

He owns a private zoo in the grounds of his dad’s mega mega-mansion, which was showcased on Channel 4’s World’s Weirdest Homes.

Inside the zoo, Rasheed keeps his own lions, tigers, panthers, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes and bears.

And just to make things worse, they’ve all been given brand names such as Versace and Armani.

What Have People Been Saying on Twitter?

The reaction to World’s Weirdest Homes was not a positive one.

While grand designs such as the fairytale 104 ft treehouse tower in Arizona and manmade life-size sandcastle in Rio De Janiero were looked on favourably, U.K viewers looked at Rasheed’s zoo in disgust.

Many Channel 4 fans vented their anger on Twitter, appalled at the fact this 16-year-old’s zoo was being glamorised on TV.
