Nope. Nope. Nope.
A body artist in Russia, who goes by just the name Aleksandr, is under fire for a video that surfaced online of him drugging and tattooing his hairless pet Sphynx cat. Poor thing!
According to The Sun, Aleksandr admitted to giving the kitty (named Demon) an anesthetic so that he could "stand the pain" of the ink needle — and that he knows he might've been in the wrong.

Though he obviously didn't feel remorse while filming the entire process!
He later said:
We were shocked by the behind-the-scenes video of a scared dog being forced into churning water on the set of the upcoming film A Dog's Purpose.
And according to Ellen DeGeneres, so was she. But she's surprisingly still on the movie's side!

On Monday's show, the beloved host had star Dennis Quaid on to talk about the movie, which she said she absolutely loved. But she also took a moment to address the (probably abused) elephant in the room, asking the Parent Trap star to comment on the controversy.
Dennis talked about his own experience on set, which sounded a far cry different from the second unit video, saying:
We doubt this will be a enough to subdue the wrath of PETA!
The production company for A Dog's Purpose, Amblin Entertainment, revealed on Thursday that they were canceling the flick's premiere and press junket amid those dog abuse accusations. We can't say we're surprised!

As you may recall, earlier this week, shocking footage leaked of a frightened German Shepherd being forced into a pool of water on the film's set. This upsetting incident obviously resulted in the famed animal rights organization to call for a boycott of the Dennis Quaid-starring family movie!
Since the company and distributor, Universal Pictures, are looking into the matter, it only seems right that they are hitting a pause button on the celebration and press junket for the film. In a recent statement, Amblin Entertainment explained:
We had a feeling this was coming…
Yesterday, TMZ published a chilling clip capturing an animal trainer shoving a visibly frightened German Shepherd named Hercules into a pool full of water that was being churned by EIGHT motors on the set of A Dog's Purpose.
In a swift response from PETA, the animal rights' organization is calling for a boycott of the movie "in order to send the message that dogs and other animals should be treated humanely, not as movie props."
