Maluma deleted his Instagram account after receiving backlash for publishing a video showing him playing with a baby lion.

Translation: “Maluma says goodbye to Instagram, outraged by criticism of this endearing photo.”

The Colombian singer was in Mexico City kicking off his world tour for his new album, “11:11.” While in Mexico he visited an animal sanctuary and uploaded the controversial video.

He probably couldn’t have predicted that the seemingly innocent post would lead him to close his favorite social media account.

In the video, he is petting and playing with a baby lion named Mala Mia. This triggered a wave of criticism as followers assumed that the clip was about a new pet and that owning an animal like that was offensive and a violation of animal rights.

And seriously, people were not having it.

Translation: “Pure ego. Canceled.”

Some on Twitter quickly got right to the point, saying that they were totally over the singer. And blaming him and his ego for the decision.

Many were concerned as to why this baby lion was being used as a photo prop.

Translation: What is this animal doing out of its habitat?

Out of the nearly 10,000 comments on the Instagram video, manuy of them were wondering why Maluma would use a baby lion as a prop – even if it was one that he had been supporting.

One angry Instagram user demanded the animal be put back.

His comment garnered more than 200 likes and many more comments from people agreeing with him.

Fans and non-fans alike came for the 25-year-old singer accusing him of being irresponsible by posing with a baby lion.

Translation: “It’s not that there are stupid people, it is that beings like you are not aware that every f*cking they do or say is a message to the world, if you have a lion cub, what message are you sending? Be conscious you stupid child.”

WIth a platform of more than 40 million people, Maluma should be more careful with what he posts. Even if the lion was a rescue that he helped support, he should have made that very clear in his post and gave a shout out to how important it is to protect animals like Mala Mia.

In all the noise, there were some fans who came to Maluma’s defense.

Translation: “Stupid people, they criticize without finding out or informing themselves. It is a sanctuary where they rescue animals from hunters, exploiters, circuses, etc. They can not return them to their habitat because they did not learn to survive. Criticism is easy.”

ICYMI, this is the video that set the whole thing into motion.

Since posting it on Saturday, the video has been viewed almost 3 million times and has racked up nearly 10,000 comments.

And for the true chismosas out there, this is Maluma’s angry clap back video:

The reggaetonero did not hide his anger and calls out fans as “ignorant and stupid.” He then went on the following rant:

“I was looking at the comments of my last post with a lion, Mala Mia. I don’t know, I don’t understand why people are so stupid, people so stupid that they think it’s my pet. They do not understand that this animal is there because it was rescued. They do not understand it would be dead if it had not been rescued.”

Maluma even put all the haters on blast asking what they were doing to help animals.

“Why is it still in their head that I would have a lion as a pet? Why, instead of writing stupid things and arguing and judging, why don’t you go out and buy food for dogs that need it on the street? Why not go and save animals, as Eduardo is doing with the foundation? Stop arguing and don’t be ignorant.”

Wow. Just wow.

In the now-deleted videos, an offended Maluma emphasized that he is dedicated to protecting animals.

“I’m an animal lover and I always be. I would never support the trafficking of animals. How could you even think that I could have an animal like that as a pet?” he lamented.

Despite all the drama, Maluma’s Instagram blackout only lasted a day.
