Chris Brown has been on PETA’s bad side as recently as last year for wearing fur; now he’s is in trouble for selling adorable puppies! Aw! Now what could be wrong with some wholesome baby pit bull distribution? According to PETA, everything. Early this week Brown’s mom Joyce Hawkins tweeted “CHRIS BROWN PUPPIES FOR SALE” and a link to CB Breeds, a site featuring some Chris Brown glamor shots. Oh, and seven pit bull puppies for sale for $1,000 a pup. “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 told E! when they found out about Brown’s side gig. “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.” Well, those “suckers” also still get an adorable puppy. Did PETA see that photo on the left up there? We’re pretty sure some people would pay $1,000 for that photo alone.
Chris Brown‘s publicist has since denied the accusation that the singer is “breeding” dogs to sell, insisting he and his family were just placing a litter of puppies born to a family dog in Virginia. “He loves animals, especially dogs,” his rep claims. That’s PETA for you, though: if they’re not electing a new, perpetually nude spokecelebrity, they’re going after celebs for their questionable animal-related decisions. Be glad you’re not a member of the Kardashian family, Chris, or it could be both at the same time!
