A story broke on Wednesday, showing popular YouTuber Brooke Houts beating her dog. She has now been accused of animal abuse. Yahoo! is reporting that Houts accidentally posted an unedited version of a video she was intending to upload. In the video, she smacked and apparently spit on her Doberman Sphinx after he jumped up on her.
After fans ripped into her on social media, Houts posted an apology “to anyone who has been affected negatively by the footage” and said she didn’t spit on him (“but I understand how it could look like I did”), she did act inappropriately. She said, “I am NOT a dog abuser or animal abuser in any way, shape or form.”
“I’m sorry but I’m not that bad and it’s not what it looked like and I usually spoil my dog but I was having a bad day and I’m gonna train him to behave”

No one is understanding. You’re abusing an animal and act like everyone else is stupid for calling you out. Your dog isn’t the one who should be shown what unacceptable behavior is, you do. You’re an awful person and I hope your dog is being taken from you, you trash bag. @ASPCA https://t.co/pAkkWVyi0h
