Brooke Houts is these days going through a petition calling for her to be banned from YouTube after she looked as if it would abuse her canine in a video.
The 20-year-old unintentionally incorporated photos of herself hitting and showing to spit on her Doberman Sphinx in one among her vlogs, with the photos later going viral on Twitter.
In a commentary afterwards, she denied spitting on her puppy and insisted she’s ‘not a dog abuser’.
Now, nearly 20,000 folks have signed a petition calling for her removal from the platform.
The description at the Change.org web page describes the incident prior to asking: ‘Does having a foul day excuse hitting your canine? How about pinning your canine to the bottom and spitting on him? Does the rest excuse this?
‘This wasn’t a mistake. No one hits and spits on a dwelling creature by way of mistake. If that is what Houts is relaxed doing on digicam, what may just she be doing to her canine off digicam?’
The author of the petition is going on to say that Sphinx is simply an ‘accessory’ for Brooke, and says that her removal from YouTube will be the ‘bare minimum.’
‘YouTube – To allow Brooke Houts to continue on your platform after blatantly violating YouTube guidelines and proving herself to be a violent, dangerous individual towards animals is the same as condoning her behavior,’ the outline continues.
‘A person like her should never be allowed to have influence or an audience, and keeping up her channel and videos reflects very poorly back onto YouTube itself.’
It provides: ‘By allowing Houts’s movies and channel to stay on-line, YouTube is basically normalizing the mistreatment of animals, specifically for the younger and impressionable audience which can be a majority on YouTube’s web site.
‘To see Houts escape from this drama with her channel intact with no punishment from the platform in which she used to broadcast her abuse also creates a risk for copycat behavior by those desperate for YouTube fame and attention.’
Metro.co.united kingdom has contacted Brooke and YouTube for remark.
Brooke confronted primary backlash after the video went viral, with fellow YouTuber Logan Paul branding it ‘remarkably grotesque.’
Jameela Jamil steered: ‘Put this cretin in jail,’ with Heavy singer Anne-Marie including: ‘Why the f*** would she upload this. What a t**t.’
The petition additionally echoes PETA’s calls for, after the animal charity tweeted: ‘DOGS DESERVE RESPECT. IF YOU CAN’T TREAT DOGS WITH KINDNESS AND INSTEAD HIT THEM, DON’T GET ONE. ATTN @YouTube: Please take away Brooke Houts from your platform.’
