Chris Brown isn’t exactly know for model behavior when it comes to interacting with his fellow humans. Now, he’s getting heat for bringing harm to other species. The R&B singer has taken up with the business of dog breeding, specifically pit bulls — and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is just not happy about it.
The animal rights activist group has vocalized its concerns with Brown’s new business on the grounds that dog breeding prevents dog adoption, which in turns leads to an increase in euthanasia among the inhabitants of animal shelters. Furthermore, PETA calls Brown’s interest in breeding and selling pit bulls nothing more than a “moneymaking scheme.”
“There is no such thing as a responsible breeder while wonderful dogs are being put down in animal shelters across the country for lack of a good home,” PETA said in a statement to Hollywood.com. “This is a moneymaking scheme, and Brown will count the suckers who fall for it as he counts the money on the way to the bank. Shelters will count the bodies in the barrel. As Justin Bieber, Kellan Lutz, and Rocsi Diaz say, ‘adopt, never buy.'”
Brown has launched this new business via the website CB Breeds. He is currently selling seven pit bull terrier puppies at $1,000 each. What do you think about his new business? Should he be donating hours at the local animal shelter instead of breeding his own pups?
