We’ve gotten dozens of messages asking us if we’re gonna write about this:
To be honest, we weren’t planning on it, but now we kind of have to. Despite the fact that the Facebook post has been shared over 100,000 times, and probably has been seen by millions of people, Katie Brown is refusing to take it down. As much as we think it’s shitty what this woman did to her dog, we are almost in awe that she hasn’t taken the post down yet. Generally when a public shaming happens like this the controversial post is immediately taken down. But Katie Brown is firing right back instead:
I’m not gonna lie, the fact that she’s not backing down makes for great theater.
Look, I get the outrage behind this, but people have to chill out. This was a tasteless attempt at a joke on the woman’s part, but nobody died. Turtleboy is a human being and his mouth has also been taped shut with duck tape before as a child. Turtleboy survived and so will this dog.
I think the least surprising part of this story is that Katie Brown is from Florida. Because…of course Florida. But more recently she moved up to Connecticut – a cut through haven state for assholes. She was recently in Florida to visit her son, who is probably the most Florida looking man these eyes have seen:
Sweet baby Jesus.
She’s also very active on Facebook and posts some interesting things:
Yup, this woman seems PERFECTLY SANE!!!
Turtleboy Sports is 100% pro-dog. Always has been. But I think the fact that this is the HUGEST deal on the Internet right now is a testament to what is wrong with our society. It’s like Cecil the Lion all over again. No one seems to be this outraged about the millions of kids who are growing up with dead beat parents. No one is trying to publicly shame parents who bring kids into this world and don’t give them any chance at having a good life. We have millions of kids in this country who are neglected on a daily basis by selfish adults, but I’ve yet to see a viral Facebook post publicly shaming one of them. Because in America we don’t give a shit how you raise your kids because it’s none of our business.
But we won’t stand for mistreatment of your dog, and we will organize a lynch mob of millions if you make an inappropriate Facebook post about your dog. I mean, just look at comments like this:
Hey here’s an idea – let the police do their job. If what she did was criminal then she’ll be arrested and if it’s not then she won’t be. Or we could all just harass her endlessly until someone from PETA decides to take justice into their own hands. Whatever seems more reasonable.
P.S. Here’s a story about a teacher who taped a 9 year old student’s mouth shut because they wouldn’t stop talking. Here’s a story about a mom who taped her 2 year old kid’s mouth shut. Here’s another one about a teacher’s aide who taped one of her student’s mouths shut. You probably never heard about them because they weren’t shared a million times on Facebook. Because ultimately people care more about a dog than they do about little kids.
