Bad joke or attempt to make ends meet month? A few days ago, Aaron Carter, brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, has adopted a puppy in a kennel in Los Angeles. But shortly after, he posted a live video on Instagram doing a doubt of his real intentions: “Here’s my new friend. But if I can’t keep it, I will be required to separate them. It has been 10 months and I would give away for 3500 dollars (about 3125 euros, editor’s NOTE). So if someone is willing to adopt my british bulldog…”.

The record was quickly removed, but the controversy has swollen, many users accusing him of trying to make a profit on the back of an animal for which he had no expenses. The kennel itself, the Lancaster Animal Care Center responded on Instagram, explaining that “work on the situation” and thanking all the users of the social network of the be alerted.

“I’ve rescued so many dogs”

on Sunday, the singer of 31 years has responded on Twitter, citing a misunderstanding on the part of his followers: “I find it appalling having to justify myself. I have saved so many dogs already and have found a home. What I said in my video was a joke. But go ahead, find a dog that I rescued and then exchanged for cash. This never happened so good luck! I am a good person and I deserve to be respected.”

In another tweet, he stated that it did not need the money from the potential sale of dogs and be ready to defend themselves through legal channels if it were to be attacked again on this topic: “Sorry to invoke this, but I own my own home and earns $ 3 million per year, so I don’t sell dog. So follow me and don’t mess my name or I will complaint. Don’t look no and splash me peace.” Later still he added: “It is so easy to be misunderstood, no matter what you do.” Before thanking his fans for their support, their affection and understanding.
