YouTube community outraged as Brooke Houts returns after dog abuse video

YouTuber Brooke Houts sparked outrage across the net in 2019 after accidentally uploading footage of herself hitting and spitting on her pet dog — and now, the content creator has returned to social media, but netizens aren’t happy with this update.

Houts was met with widespread backlash in August 2019, after mistakenly uploading footage for a vlog that showed the YouTuber striking her pet Doberman Pinscher, Sphinx, and even spitting on the animal.

The accidental upload quickly caught viewers’ attention, who spread clips from the now-deleted video like wildfire across the net — even prompting involvement from the Los Angeles Police Department.

The LAPD’s Animal Cruelty Task Force investigated the content creator, ultimately ruling that Houts would be able to keep her pet, with TMZ reporting that law enforcement concluded their evidence didn’t “support criminal charges.”

With social media stars like H3H3’s Ethan Klein and Logan Paul putting Houts on blast for purported animal abuse, it makes sense that the YouTuber took a step back from social media — but she announced her return to content creation on March 6 with a video explaining her absence.

According to Houts, she wanted to find the right time to return to making videos, and has been focusing on her physical and mental health as well as joining a church group.

“There was a lot of change that I had to go through before coming back to YouTube,” she admitted. “And I can confidently say that I’ve honestly never been in a better place physically, mentally.”

Despite her uplifting words, commenters are outraged at her return to the platform, and hit out at the YouTuber for mistreating her animal.

“Literally nobody asked where you’ve been,” one user wrote. “You’re disgusting.”

“Lets be real, she’s only back because she isn’t getting the income she used to,” another commented. “Sis, I’m sorry, but you’re genuinely cancelled. You need to find another job.”

“Brooke: Where I’ve been,” yet another chimed in. “Everybody here: I was hoping in jail!”

In spite of her attempts at making a comeback, it seems like Hout’s scandal continues to follow her — and there’s no telling if critics will ever forget the disturbing video footage that led to her downfall.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has hopped on the ASMR trend, and she brought singer Bebe Rexha along with her for a hilarious relaxation session — complete with a few insights into both stars’ lives.

Charli D’Amelio may be known for her catchy choreography, but it looks like the TikTok celebrity is more than just a dancer. Now, she’s delving into the world of ASMR, and brought Bebe Rexha along for the ride.

Their ASMR collaboration, uploaded to YouTube on October 23, came just two weeks after Charli’s appearance in Rexha’s ‘Baby I’m Jealous’ music video with Doja Cat, as well as a few other key influencers like Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg.

It looks like the group has gotten close in the days that followed, with Bebe and Charli settling down for snacks in front of a high-sensitivity ASMR mic to talk about their careers and favorite foods.

Charli D’Amelio, Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg appeared in a music video with Doja Cat and Bebe Rexha earlier this month.

Although plenty of hilariousness ensued, the two dropped quite a few facts for their fans, with Bebe Rexha admitting that she gets anxiety when flying on airplanes.

That’s not all; Charli was also asked about the “funnest moment” in her career, which she whittled down to having dinner with her friends or just hanging out with other TikTokers, rather than attending big events as an A-list celeb.

“I realize like, this is crazy!” she said. “It’s those little moments where it just like, clicks for a second, and I’m like, ‘Woah, that’s kind of insane.’ Those are the best.”

Although Charli’s ASMR series is still in its early stages, Bebe Rexha suggested they go full-on Mukbang for future episodes — a style of video where influencers sit down with a huge spread of food and chow down in front of the camera.

It seems that this style of video is rather popular in some online circles, although it still remains to be seen if Charli’s fanbase is up for that kind of content. Nevertheless, her pilot ASMR experience was certainly a fun ride, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the star in her new journey into the world of relaxation.
