Katy Perry Hits Back At Animal Cruelty Claims
It looks like PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have annoyed Katy Perry by issuing a statement slamming the popstars new music video 'Roar'.
Merrilee Burke from PETA alleges that casting animals for a music video traumatizes them, saying in statement "What you may not know -- as most people do not -- is that animals used for entertainment in film and television endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods."
The organisation goes onto explain that a set filled with bright lights, heavy equipment and crowds can traumatize an animal or spur stress and anxiousness in unfamiliar and frightening situations.
Perry, who is an animal lover and adovacate for animal rights, has slammed PETA's statement saying that the American Humane Association was on set each day of the video shoot and that guidelines were strictly followed.
"The animals dictated the pace of the shoot," it was explained.
