Fans accuse Lady Gaga of animal cruelty after seeing this video

9 May 2014 6pm Whilst on tour in Pittsburgh, Lady Gaga posts a video of her new pup called Asia to her facebook page. The cute little puppy is shown ‘dancing’ to some R&B music, however the video has sparked outrage amongst her fans who are commenting that the video is abusive and that the pup is clearly not having a good time.

A few commentors went a step further and made their own meme of the dog. (see below) Top comments on the facebook video so far are ‘ Poor dog…’, ‘ Poor thing. You can’t treat a dog like that no matter who you are’ and ‘This is just sick. Lost so much respect for you!! A puppy isn’t a TOY! Throwing him around and shaking him?! SHAME ON YOU AND THE PEOPLE DEFENDING THIS’.
