YouTuber Brooke Houts Receives Intense Backlash After Leaked Vid Shows Her 'Abusing' Dog
YouTuber Brooke Houts has found herself in some seriously hot water after ‘accidentally’ uploading an unedited video of a prank she pulled on her dog.
In the uncut footage, the 20-year-old can be seen aggressively pushing, hitting and even spitting on her Doberman, Sphinx.
NOTE: This video contains some distressing footage.

The video posted to her 330,000 subscribers went viral for all the wrong reasons, even picking up the attention of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
“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 representative told The Verge.
Houts released a Twitter statement in response to the backlash, which seems to have created even more backlash from fans.
“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,” she wrote.

Followers have been less than impressed with the statement, with one calling it “literal crap”.

You fucking spit on your dog. That isn’t how you show your dog you’re the boss. That’s how you disrespect and degrade your dog, who loves you, you fuck.

"I am not a dog abuser"
(Clear evidence of her abusing her dog because he interrupted her stupid video)
You should just honestly shut the fuck up and give the dog to a family that'll actually love him and not chuck him around like a fucking rag doll.

It’ll be a hard scandal for the YouTuber to come back from and by the savage denouncement by her fans, it doesn’t look like she’ll be winning them over any time soon.
We just hope Sphinx is okay and is being treated like the damn good dog he is.
