Chris Brown Under Fire For Dog-Breeding Business

by at . Comments

Must be Friday. Chris Brown is stirring up controversy once again, but no pop singers or plate glass windows were bashed beyond recognition this time.

This time, he's not in trouble with the law though. It's just his apparent side business breeding dogs and selling them for profit that has people riled up.

The R&B superstar is drawing heat from animal-rights activists, obviously, who want him instead to promote adoptions of animals from shelters.

On Monday, Brown's manager-mother, Joyce Hawkins, posted a link on her Twitter to CB Breeds, a website featuring this cute photo of her son and a pup.

CB Breeds is offering seven fully vaccinated American pit bull terrier pups for $1,000 a piece. Needless to say, the alleged puppy mill drew howls of protest.

While CB is a perfectly legitimate enterprise, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) was quick to issue a statement condemning him:

"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," PETA said.

"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."

"Shelters will count the bodies in the barrel. As Justin Bieber, Kellan Lutz and [other responsible celebrities] always say, "Adopt, never buy."

The Los Angeles chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, meanwhile, decried what it called his "backyard breeding."

Said spcaLA president Madeline Bernstein:

"There is no reason to breed and produce more pit bull puppies when there are pit bull puppies waiting for homes in every shelter in America." 

"Furthermore, as some of these dogs suffer from and are victims of their owner's misuse, they can be even harder to place."

A publicist for the singer denied to E! News that Chris Brown is breeding, insisting that the puppies were part of a litter birthed by his family's dogs back home in Virginia and were being sold to make sure they get good homes.

"He loves animals, especially dogs," said the rep.

Chris recently posed with a puppy belonging to GF Karrueche Tran, for what that's worth. Which is pretty much nothing, we admit. Sorry.

Chris, why are you breeding dogs? Isn't music making enough money for you? There are too many dogs/cats that need homes. Why in heavens name would you want to add to this problem? Please Stop Now! Please Stop!
