Noticed on youtube that a lot of people have set up violent fights between bugs as some kind of gladiator match with creatures like spiders, ants, wasps, scorpions, centipedes, beetles etc. Is this wrong or not?

Ultimately morality boils down to emotions. I don't and never have felt anything for arthropods except indifference or disgust, so yes, bug fights are morally acceptable in my eyes.

feeling "disgust" is probably coming from a place of lack of knowledge. bugs are beautiful creatures just like any other, and just because you feel "disgusted" it doesn't excuse that it is morally unacceptable to pit two living creatures against each other for entertainment. the fact that people think this is disturbing to say the least

What knowledge do I lack the possession of which would make my disgust evaporate?

I don't like bugs in general, so doubt I really give a damn.

Because bug fights have become so popular that people make series out of them e.g. monster bug wars.

It's evil. Insects have basic nervous systems and understand very primal emotions such as fear and anger. https://www.consciouslifestylemag.com/do-insects-have-feelings-and-emotions/

It's forcing semi-sentient creatures to fight for your amusement. There's not much difference between it and dog-fighting, bullfighting or cockfighting. The only difference is society's perceptions of it and portrayal of insects.

I agree with this, it's pretty messed up. There was this company in Japan that bought these creepy crawlies and forced them to fight to the death in an enclosure, and they filmed these fights and uploaded them on the internet, though I think some of their videos got removed for being too violent:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Bug_Fights

Some people defend bug fights on the basis that it "happens in the wild," which is true, it happens all the time, but it's different in the wild because sometimes they escape the fight and survive, it only happens if one bug is prey of the other bug or randomly meet each other in their local habitats. But when humans set up bug fights, the bugs have no choice but to fight, and sometimes they're being forced to fight completely foreign bugs that they wouldn't meet in the wild.

Japanese culture is generally fairly backwards in many respects. Same goes for Spanish with bullfighting and even English and American areas of society.

Btw, the moment the bull enters that arena it's dead. It's disgusting and cruel.
