Pop star Katy Perry has been slammed over an Australian ad in which she tells her dog to go and chase koalas.
Koalas attacked by dogs is Australia’s one of biggest wildlife threats.The Chained to the Rhythm hitmaker has teamed up with a company for a series of online promotions of her upcoming Witness tour Down Under, but has been slammed for ending an ad by telling her teacup poodle Nugget to "chase" koalas, reports femalefirst.co.uk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IDX78vORrE After letting viewers in on how to enter a draw to win one of 8,000 free tickets to her show, Perry says, “Let's go chase some koalas, Nugget!" The clip has been slammed by vet Claire Madden, who treats koalas injured in dog attacks. “This is just absolute ignorance from Perry and Myer, and inappropriate on so many levels.” “Perry is a role model to so many young people, and this just destroys all the good work we do to try to encourage people not to let their dogs come into contact with koalas," Madden told The Courier Mail. According to her, Koalas attacked by dogs is one of their biggest threats and primary reasons for presenting to wildlife hospitals across Australia. Following this backlash, Myer has now replaced the line in the ad. It now ends with the Wide Awake singer saying, “Okay Nugget, it’s time to get you a puppy passport.” In 2013, Perry was also called out for using animals in her Roar music video. PETA argued that filming animals outside their natural environments traumatizes them.
