‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Lala Kent Slams Tom Sandoval Captive Tiger Photos: ‘Animal Abuse’

Lala Kent is slamming her “Vanderpump Rules” co-star Tom Sandoval for taking pictures with a captive tiger. Tom shared now-deleted photos on Instagram this week from his trip to Thailand with his co-star Tom Schwartz. In one photo, Sandoval sits crossed-legged as a tiger rests its paws on his shoulders. In another snap, he sits in front of a tiger as it looks to the side. The photos did not sit well with Lala, who took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday to slam the 40-year-old. “I am appalled by the photo my cast member took with a tiger in captivity,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “This topic has been close to my heart for many years. What is disguised as ‘fun’ and ‘cool’ is, in fact, animal abuse. It’s heartbreaking. I’ve made noise about educating yourselves, & here I am to tell you again…Do not support places like this,” she added. Access Hollywood has reached out to Sandoval’s team for comment.
