There are some individuals who ought to simply not be allowed to personal animals. Paris Hilton is a type of folks. Anna Faris is a type of folks. And Justin Bieber is a type of folks. Justin Bieber famously deserted his monkey (not a euphemism) in Germany in 2013. Bieber acquired loads of justified sh-t for that, and you’d have thought that have would have knowledgeable all of his future pet-ownership selections. Not a lot. Final yr, Bieber adopted this cute little furball (seen in these images) named Todd. Todd Bieber was beloved. Todd Bieber was photographed. Todd Bieber had his personal Instagram account. After which Todd Bieber was given away to one in every of Justin’s backup dancers. Now it seems that Todd wants hip surgical procedure and guess who hasn’t provided up a dime to assist his once-beloved canine?
Justin Bieber‘s uneasy relationship with the animal kingdom continues. This time, the singer seems to have palmed off his sick canine on a buddy, who’s now making an attempt to scrounge up $eight,000 for a lifesaving operation for the pet. In August final yr, Bieber proudly launched his “new little fluff ball Todd” to his followers on Instagram. Later he posted a video of the preternaturally fluffy animal, questioning adoringly, “How are you actual?”
Nevertheless, the infatuation has handed. Plainly Bieber — who famously adopted after which discarded a monkey, OG Mally, in 2013 — has given the canine to one in every of his dancers, C.J. Salvador. It will get worse for Todd. Salvador has created a GoFundMe web page for the luckless mutt, explaining that the pooch “is a 7-month-old chow chow born with a delivery defect referred to as ‘sever hip dysplacia.’ Lengthy story brief, by the point he turns 1, he gained’t have the ability to stroll, run, not to mention play.”
Salvador says that Todd can both be put down or have a “very specialised surgical procedure.”
“So I’m humbly asking you to donate something,” he writes. The fundraising objective of $eight,000 has been met, and the rely is now as much as $eight,246.
Forbes estimates that Bieber made $56 million in 2016. The Canadian star has a protracted historical past with animals. He has owned a canine named Sammy (deceased), a snake named Johnson (auctioned off for charity), a hamster referred to as Pac (which he gave away to a fan within the entrance row of a live performance, shortly earlier than its premature dying), Tuts the Cat (whereabouts unknown) and a Yorkshire terrier referred to as Ester, which seems nonetheless to be within the care of the “Sorry” singer. A rep for Bieber didn’t instantly return a request for remark.
Pity the poor Web page Six intern who needed to compile that record of long-lost Bieber pets. Truthfully although, that is gross. It’s disgusting. It’s infantile. In the event you solely desire a pet for a month whereas the pet is “cute,” and then you definately discard the pet, guess what? You shouldn’t be allowed to personal a pet. Justin Bieber simply must cease buying or adopting animals. And he additionally wants to chop a examine to C.J. for Todd’s surgical procedure. That is ridiculous.
