YouTube “star” Brooke Houts is now in hot water, after she accidentally uploaded a video of herself beating, shoving, and spitting on her dog. The video will definitely upset pretty much anyone, so just a warning before you decide to click play.
In what seems like an outtakes video, she’s caught hitting the doberman multiple times, yelling at him, shoving him to the side, and even spitting on him.
She’s now released a lengthy statement claiming she doesn’t abuse animals and that the video isn’t reflective of how she treats her dog or animals in general:
"I am NOT a dog abuser or animal abuser in any way, shape, or form. Anyone who has witnessed or heard true animal abuse will be able to clearly see that. My dog, in no way, shape, or form was hurt by any action that I displayed in this video"
She claims it’s too expensive to hire a trainer for him.
TMZ reports that LAPD’s Animal Cruelty unit is aware of the video and is currently investigating.
