YouTuber, Brooke Houts, is under investigation after a video of her abusing her dog went viral. In the video, Brooke was planning to play a prank on her dog, but somehow the unedited footage was uploaded and showed Brooke hitting and yelling at her dog.
Brooke has since issued an apology. She said:
“I want to clarify that 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.
Anyone who knows me personally knows I have an immense love for animals, including my own. I would never do anything to purposefully physically or mentally harm any animal. Again, I should NOT have yelled at him or have been as physically aggressive as I was and I’m fully aware of that.”
LAPD is now investigating the incident.
“Our Animal Cruelty Task Force has received numerous complaints about the video you’re speaking of and we are currently looking into the matter,” an LAPD media representative told The Verge.
