Fans are upset with her behavior!
To say that Farrah Abraham is the Teen Mom fan favorite would be a huge leap. In fact, she tends to be the cast member that viewers most often love to hate. Farrah has managed to work her controversial persona to her benefit, turning out roles in adult films and other MTV shows as well as launching numerous brick and mortar businesses.
Not many people agree with the fact that Farrah balances her motherhood with her adult entertainment businesses, but at the end of the day, that’s her choice. Even her haters can agree that it’s her business how she lives her life. That said, there is a limit to fan’s tolerance. Now, that it seems her choices might be affecting innocent lives, it’s harder to defend the star.
During a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, one fan noticed something disturbing about the way Farrah was treating her animals. The behavior is definitely controversial, but some people are even accusing her of animal abuse… again!
Long-time viewers of Teen Mom have surely noticed how many members of the cast are animal lovers. Kailyn, Jenelle, Catelynn, and many more of the cast have numerous pets. However — as in everything she does — Farrah had to put her own unique spin on it by treating Sophia to a miniature horse of her very own, named Starburst.
Considering the new equine member of her family, it’s no wonder that balancing Starburst and all of her dogs became a challenge. But cameras caught one of Farrah’s behaviors that some fans found very upsetting.
“Was anyone else disturbed by Farrah’s treatment of those dogs?” wrote Reddit user ohhi_Jenelle. They then recalled a moment while Farrah was staying with her father Michael and his new wife. While the three sit down to talk, the dogs bark loudly and run around. Farrah takes a moment to berate them, and then she puts them in cages instead of letting them out. She then takes a blanket and drapes it over the cages, putting the dogs into darkness. In another moment, she can be seen squirting the dogs with a water bottle while they are still in their crates.
“For me, that was a really horrifying moment,” wrote the fan on Reddit. “Dogs shouldn’t be locked in tiny crates like that, and covering them with a sheet before resuming a conversation with several people in the same room just seemed cruel. They’re not parrots, they’re not going to fall asleep just because you put a sheet over their cages.”
This user wasn’t the only one upset with Farrah’s behavior. “I’m definitely not one of those animal hugger, bleeding hearts in no way. I actually don’t like pets. Buuutt, it infuriated me how she treats animals,” user Your_acceptable wrote. “The horse is my main sore spot. Especially when she kept the poor thing in her back yard with cement ect.”
User we_dig_up_the_road agreed. “I felt sick to my stomach watching those dogs sit in the crates and her putting a blanket over them! Farrah has always been a peice of work but this is unacceptable,” they chimed in.
Even though some people love to hate Farrah, many fans came to her defense in this action.
“It’s useful to remember that dogs are dogs, not humans,” wrote user orangepeeling. “Just because you think a human may not like something doesn’t mean dogs regard it the same way.”
User anotherbabydaddy wrote, “I see nothing wrong with crating dogs.” They then added, “However, squirting dogs while they are crated and agitated for barking is just plain mean and beyond that, it takes away the safe space that a crate can provide.”
Farrah has yet to comment on these accusations. But if the past is any indication, she’s probably be willing to defend her actions!
