Chris Brown has come under fire once again.
This time, the R&B bad boy is in hot water with animal rights groups for trying to sell pit bull puppies for $1,000 a piece. Brown launched his website CB Breeds, which he poses with a black-and-white puppy on the homepage and offers seven puppies, all with a “four generation performance pedigree” for sale.
Once People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) heard about his latest business, the organizations weren’t too happy about it.
“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,” a PETA spokesperson told E! News. “Shelters will count the bodies in the barrel.”
The Los Angeles chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals also criticized Brown for such “backyard breeding.”
“There is no reason to breed and produce more pit bull puppies when there are pit puppies waiting for homes in every shelter in America,” said spcaLA president Madeline Bernstein in a statement. “Furthermore, as some of these dogs suffer from and are victims of their owner’s misuse, they can be even harder to place.”
Brown’s publicist told E! the singer loves dogs, and that the animals for sale were part of a litter from one his family’s dogs and he wanted to make sure they got good homes.
