Pete Davidson’s response to PETA following the organization’s thoughts about the actor’s recent pet purchase has raised many eyebrows. Recall that the Pete Davidson and PETA issue began after the comedian chose to buy a puppy from a breeder. A few days later, the animal rights group expressed their disappointment in Davidson’s choice to buy from a pet shop rather than adopt from an animal shelter. Now, the actor had fired back at PETA, letting it all out in an expletives-laden voicemail — a decision he doesn’t regret.
Pete Davidson Responds To PETA Via Profane Voice Note
The Pete Davidson and PETA dog issue might not end anytime soon, as the SNL star fired back at the group. Surprisingly, Pete Davidson’s response to PETA wasn’t what many would have expected. On Monday, the Bupkis star left a voicemail for Daphna Nachminovitch, the Senior VP of Cruelty Investigations at PETA. Davidson began by describing Nachminovitch’s statement as uneducated and premature. Next, he revealed the reason for his decision.
The comedian noted that he was allergic to dogs, hence his reason for getting a cavapoo — a nearly hypoallergenic breed that doesn’t shed. Davidson then explained that the canine was for his mom, who had lost a puppy. Surprisingly, what followed the 29-year-old’s explanation was an expletive-filled outburst. According to TMZ, Davidson angrily told Nachminovitch to do research before talking to the media. Then, he proceeded to use the f-word and made a profane suggestion involving his private part.
PETA Responds To Davidson
While the public tries to digest Pete Davidson’s response to PETA, the animal rights body has commented on the actor’s words. In a chat with TMZ, PETA revealed that there was no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog, which Davidson would have known if he researched. According to the organization, at least a quarter of dogs in shelters were purebreds. They also noted that Petfinder had listings for homeless dogs of every breed worldwide, including a cavapoo.
In response to PETA’s statement, Davidson told TMZ he didn’t know of the possibility of adopting a specific hypoallergenic dog. According to him, he was told it wasn’t an option, and even if it were, it would be rare. Also, Davidson told the outlet the reason for his anger. He explained that he was upset about the pet store filming him without his permission and acknowledgment. Then, PETA chose to make things worse by making a public example of his family, making their grief worse. While the star admitted he was upset and used a poor choice of words, he wasn’t sorry for his actions. According to him, standing up for himself and his family was important. Overall, given the actor’s response, hopefully, PETA and Pete Davidson can finally drop the debate.
