Kate Gosselin Tweets 'Pit Bull Victims' Site

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Former reality star Kate Gosselin is the latest “celeb” to step in the ring against pit bulls.

The breed has been the target of a lot of negative attention lately, from Kelly Ripa’s comments that pit bulls are dangerous, to the poisoning of puppies at an awareness event to a “hate walk” scheduled in Arizona.

And now Gosselin has taken to Twitter to spread the perception that pit bulls are inherently dangerous.

The situation came to a head when Liz Janetta, who is now dating Gosselin’s ex Jon, shared photos of some of the “Kate Plus Eight” star’s children cuddling with the dogs.

“The most pure and genuine kind of love & affection,” Janetta tweeted, sharing a photo of some of the Gosselin daughters hugging Janetta’s pups. This immediately sparked outrage in the Twitterverse, with commenters complaining that it wasn’t safe for kids to be around pit bulls.

Jon Gosselin's new girlfriend shared photos of the Gosselin children cuddling pit bulls.

Janetta defended her pets, writing, “My kids r around pitbulls every day.. Frm Dobies, to German Shepherds to Rottweiler, now Pits- the desire 2 blame wil nvr fade.”

However, that didn’t stop the backlash, and some commenters suggested that Gosselin would be upset if she knew about the photos.

“Sure u want 2 be stiring things up Liz..or u wouldn’t be tweeting another woman’skids with pit bulls..Yes did U have permission?” someone wrote.

Janetta immediately fired back with, “permission from…. Twitter?? Yes, “another woman’s kids” also the children of my boyfriend. Kindly… Keep comments to urself plz.”

This was enough to prompt Gosselin to step into the fray. Although she didn’t write her own anti-pit bull comment, she did retweet one to her followers that said, “Children who were victims of pit bulls Take a look & see why people care.” The tweet also included a link to the aforementioned hate walk site, which encourages people to “walk for victims of pit bulls and other dangerous dogs.”

Gossip site Celebitchy points out that this isn’t the first time Gosselin has run into trouble with dogs. According to the site, “[Gosselin may have] physically abused and neglected the family dogs, two German shepherds, before eventually returning them to the breeder. She’s not a responsible or caring pet owner to say the least…German shepherds can be aggressive if they’re mistreated, so Kate probably risked her kids’ safety much more by beating on their poor dogs, but I wouldn’t expect her to realize or acknowledge that.”

It’s disappointing to see someone in the public eye spreading misinformation about pit bulls and other “dangerous dogs.” Here’s hoping Jon Gosselin and his new girlfriend can educate Kate about breed stereotyping.

    Walk against dangerous dogs? What? I have two pit mixes and they are great family dogs, never any aggression My daughter was mauled by a golden retriever…guess golden’s are a “dangerous dog” that folks should march against. You can’t base it on breed, each dog is an individual.

    • Yvonne Maire

      Agreed, I was attacked by a “family” chocolate lab. Staples, stitches and scars that wont heal. But I don’t hate the breed…

    • Jesse

      no look at dog attacks by breed and u will see shitbulls are way on top and 80 percent of there attacks are on owners or family friends dumb fucking dog

  • TJ

    I have two pits that are wonderful and I also have a ten pound yorkie that will bit the – yoy know what out of you – any chance he gets. He is a 100 times more vicious than both pits put together

  • I hate this awful person ! She is an example for everything wrong in the world.

  • Chris

    I bet it has nothing to do with the dogs; just a bitter woman who would do anything to make her ex look incompetent as a father. The dogs and children are fine. Nothing more than puppy love. If she doesn’t see it plain in her face, nothing anyone can say would change a bitter woman’s heart.

    • Laurin Rainha

      i agree. i think it’s to make jon look like a bad father

      • Lynn Willis

        In reality though it’s making her look like the fool far more than he is

    • californiac

      @Chris Ojar, I think she is mentally unstable.

  • Michelle

    Trying to boost your celebrity with bad press and taking a page from Kelly Ripas book won’t work. Pitiful that you’d rather try for another 15 minutes and have your kids hate you and talk about a breed of dog you have no experience with just to spite your ex-husband. You are ugly from the inside out.

  • wow.. another idiot * celebrity* ..but then she always was an idiot. My kids have pitbulls around them and to be honest, they feel safe, protected and loved by these dogs. And as the pic shows…so do her kids… wake up you dumb ass and get to know a pit b4 u pass judgement on them

    • Buzz Lightyear, Away!

      Anyone that even knows a little bit about dogs, knows it all depends on how pit bulls are raised. No such thing as a dangerous dog and pit bulls are generally excellent with children. Maybe she can be the new spokeswomen for all of the pit bull haters. That would be a sure fire way to make sure she becomes public enemy #1. I think she should have consulted her PR rep before saying anything, because by tweeting this, it pretty much destroyed anything she had left.

    • Jaloney Caldwell

      Yeah until they go beserk and tear off the kids scalp and maybe a nose and an eyeball for good measure.. How does a mom apologize for that? Can’t.. so why take the risk? OH cause mama wants to be cool??? Mama is a fool.

      • Michael Laprise

        Jaloney Caldwell your a stupid cunt in my book

        • Jesse

          I go to the dog park 3 times a week and aleast 1 time a shit bull bites a dog or even it’s own owner dumb fucking dogs dumb fuck owner kill them all dumb monkey

      • survivingstupidpeople

        Well don’t worry there my cherry picking, fiery pants friend.. YOU are not at all at risk of being Cool

      • people suck

        What about mankind? Im sure more Men/Women have killed other people than any breed of dog has. Not to mention how many human beings sexually abuse children. Its sad how so many people will stand up against a breed of dog but clearly the human race/breed is the most horrible.

  • Pretty Pitties

    What an effing dip shit!!!I’ll get my three pits to lick her face!!!AFTER they licked their butt holes!!!

  • I have TONS of pictures of my kids (5 years and 9 months) with our pup, who just so happens to be an APBT, and she is the sweetest dog I’ve ever been around. Kate needs to get educated and start worrying more about her children rather than being in the spotlight. The picture above shows nothing but affection and love. She is disgusting in so many ways. Appears she will do anything to get attention… its sickening.

  • Yvonne Maire

    Poisoning puppies? I seriously would love to punch her in the face..

  • What an uneducated bitch. I also don’t like the article referring to her as a celebrity, I mean really all she’s “famous” for is having 8 kids at once. Reality show people are not celebrities unless they were one prior to being in one of those shows. Not to mention most are staged for the cameras anyway. I think maybe we need a walk for reality show haters. Now that’s a walk I’d join in.

    • californiac

      @Ann Fisher…thank you!!!!!!

  • Jennifer JC

    This joke of a person, Kate G. is a ‘has been’. She is a nobody so who cares what she thinks anyway. She is so hell bent on staying in the limelight by any means possible, she will say and do anything. She is a joke, and her comments are not even worth people being so upset over. Look at the source and ask yourself if anyone cares what this basket case of a woman thinks anyway… I am sure the answer will be NO!!! Too bad her husband can’t get those kids… their mom is sure going to mess them all up for life.

  • DS

    Teaching your children hate and stereotypes. What kind of a mother are you? Oh, I forgot, we are talking about Kate Gosselin, a woman who cant even take care of her own children. I think Jon is GREAT for teaching his children not to discriminate against anything, especially a dog! Looks like somebody is jelous and she is trying to bash her ex husband however she can. Now on a dogs cost, who has done absolutely nothing wrong. Shame on you! People should be afraid of you and your ignorance!

  • inas

    I’m tired of celebrities, or anyone for that matter, opening up the mouths when they have no idea what they’re talking about. Shut the hell up you worthless bitch! I love Pit bulls <3

  • Guest

    She needs to come face to face reality and realize she’s not a star and people are tired of her, instead of trying to spread Hate to make herself relevent.

    • Guest

      meant to type “relevant”…

  • Mary

    I didn’t think I could dislike this woman more but yes…I can.

  • Mary

    I await the tell all book from one of her older daughters.

  • cycosfireball

    Funny how a woman that SOLD her children to a TV show for some time in the spotlight claims Pits are a danger…….. I’m surprised anyone lets her keep those poor kids.

    • survivingstupidpeople

      True story!

  • Laurin Rainha

    she is dumb! there are NO BAD DOGS… and the kids are NOT only hers. i don’t think that jon would put HIS and her kids in harms way. pits are good dogs. any dog can be “mean” if treated the wrong way

  • DD

    She’s just a bitter bitch cuz her ex had a new woman. Get the fuck over it. It own a Pitbull and my 2 year old nephew can ride her, and she’s gentle and sweet. Stop being a bitter cunt and deal with the fact that Pitbulls are good dogs

  • baldwin1175

    Dear Lord,
    Please help the stupid people out there that know NOTHING about pitt bulls.

    • Jesse

      Pitbulls are like aids just a matter of time do you want a rat snake or a rattlesnake aka shitbull plastic surgeon number 1 recommended dog pitbull

  • Robin Nesteruk

    Kate Who????? She is such a has been..Exploiting her kids everyday,I am not surprised..Love Pitties..They are sweet and protective..Unlike Kate..

  • Cheryl Huerta

    Kate Gosselin is obviously a bitter ex-spouse who will jump on any train to get a chance to discredit her ex’s new love interest. OR maybe Kate simply doesn’t feel that her celebrity is as strong as it once was and is making an attempt to get back in the public’s eye.
    Regardless this woman needs to do a bit of REAL research before advocating against pit bulls, or anything for that matter, and then after she has true facts decide what side she’s on.

    I do feel though that this has very little to do with pit bulls or even dogs and has everything to do with being a childish, bitch of an ex-wife to Jon just because she can and just because she still has about ten people who might remember who the hell she is! Sorry to be brutal, and I’m usually NOT, but come’on Kate why don’t you grow up just a little bit and allow your husband to move on in his life???

  • Monica Taylor

    Another Hollywood skank putting her ignorance in the spotlight.

  • Kim Drury

    You and Kelly Rippidiot need to get a clue. Your idiotic comments show a lack of research in the subject matter you chose to speak about….I pray your kids won’t grow up to be as uneducated and prejudiced as you!

  • Monica Taylor

    Maybe someone should organize a “WALK FOR IGNORANT PEOPLE”….

    • ssham

      bravo-couldn’t have said it any better

    • jb

      Monica, great IDEA, so long as we are walking on them. LOL

      • Jaloney Caldwell

        You are already walking all over little innocent victims. and the families of kids dead and gone .. shredded by pitbulls.. SO LOL you cruel nut job.. Don’t take it seriously.. Just stay with your nutjob cult cause you have nothing without this right? You are as shallow and empty as a mud puddle.

        • jaloney go back to suggesting ways of killing a pit bull to your group of idiots. how many facebook pages are you up to now. lose count? must suck that one of your very own family members LOVES pit bulls. and the only “nutjob cult” is the one ran by colleen the fortune teller. funny that you run your mouth so much yet didnt make it to the walk. way to show your support nitwit. go start a new fb page, i don’t think you have enough yet.

          • Jewelz Smith

            she is like the typical dbo foamer a keyboard warrior.. all talk and no action..

        • amanda

          Pretty sure a mud puddle is filled with mud, not empty…but what do I know

        • I’d like to see the reports of pit bulls killing kids. I’d be glad to show you every health certificate and bite report I’ve ever filled out, not one of them being for a pit bull, but a majority of them being for labs, chihuahuas, shih-tzus, and american eskimos- the “family” dogs.

        • Every day and loving it. only wish I could have seen it happen.
          *** hey watch, that dude is messing with that dog. wonder what’s going to happen. what is he doing with that stick? is he poking that dog? why would he do that? don’t he know he can get bit? that dude is completely retarded. oh look the dogs getting up but the guy is still messing with it. ooooo did you see that? that was cool. that dog just ripped his face off. bet he won’t be that stupid again.

        • your one ignorant ass.I feel terrible about these innocent victims of pitbull attacks.Its not the breed its irresponcible dog owners thats the problem .all dogs should be leashed and in a fenced area not running loose and you never leave a small child alone with any dog.Some people are just plan stupid to blame a breed.

        • Jewelz Smith

          typical dbo foamer twisting words.. walk all over ignorant people you stupid bint…

    • Jaloney Caldwell

      Yeah it is ignorant, selfish and cruel to ignore all of the victims of ptbulls left on their own, with no recovery from the pitbull owners.. Victims begging to pay for massive medical bills, and hoping to come across enough money to pay for plastic surgery. I guess Monica you would belong at a walk for ignorant people.

      • amanda

        those pet owners should be held accountable for their pet…but NOT the breed! My sister owns a pitbull/boxer mix and she is the most gentle loving dog I have ever come across. So she should be what put down simple because she is a pit? Get a clue! Also where exactly did anyone say anything about ignoring the victims? I don’t recall reading that any where on here…hmm.

        • That is perfectly said! I have owned several pits and not one of them has ever been anything other than giant couch potatos. The love to play and love and be loved. Only an ignorant person would blame all pits for the actions of a few. For a long time Cocker spanials were number one on the bite list and I never heard of anyone trying to put down the whole breed.

        • Wendy Medina Garcia

          Exactly! My bro has 2 Pitbulls they are so great with kids!

    • amanda

      That would have to be a really long walk!

    • TJ Stevens

      won’t help Monica…….ya just can’t fix stupid!

  • candace6

    More confirmation that there is absolutely nothing to like about the dreadful Kate. Not one thing.

  • She is just a bitter shrew. She would rally against sunshine if Jon said he liked it. She is irrelevant.

  • susansig

    One rotten human abuses a child and all children are kept away from that person.
    One (more than likely abused) dog bites a child and the whole breed is under fire!
    Guess more stupid people exist than intelligent ones.

  • kat

    so there is seriously a hate walk? Really? I have owned pits and rotts and it is seriously misleading for people to misunderstand the breeds, its all in how you raise your animals, mine were pure bred lap dogs, they loved belly rubs and kisses behind their ears, sweet animals…..

    • GopherFanInIowa

      There was a *Walk for Victims* in Tucson a couple of weekends ago sponsored by Dogsbite.Org. It was in reality a hate rally, and fourteen people showed up. Half of those were the organizers. Dogsbite.Org has never given one red cent to victims of ANYTHING. Even victims saw through this fraud of an event.

      • Jaloney Caldwell

        It was a loving and kind show of support to people with common experiences… and some were scared awayfrom the event as there were threats of violence from pittie nut jobs.. but it was a great success and another victims walk is in the works so get used to it.. And the victims LOVED the support and opportunity to have their voices heard finally.

        • GopherFanInIowa

          Then why were YOU not there Jaloney? LOL! You were not even in attendance, so do not give people the impression you were one of the 14 people there. LOL! They did not even WALK…they hung around a table and that was about it. No vending, hand written posterboard advertising DUCT TAPED to trees, the band standing in the dirt with no audience. Very half assed poorly done flop. If it was about victims, why would you have pictures of bloody children at the event? You think THAT is what victims need? What a fraud.

          • survivingstupidpeople

            You’ve done your research on jaloney, Beautiful combination of accuracy and ridicule delivered with sharp wit. Well said.

  • Ame

    pits rule…and drool….they lick and love…and it’s idiots like this that do not understand what the hell they are talking about!!

  • $63428496

    Take your uneducated bitterness some place else, stop attacking these dogs to try and make your self look good, all your doing is looking like an idiot, this just proved to me that Jon is the adult here, this woman is always looking for something to attack him and now she is attacking this wonderful breed to get back at him, she is nothing more than an evil, bitter woman.

  • What a stupid BITCH!!! I hate that woman!! & anyone else who dislikes pitbulls!! ALL of us PITBULL OWNERS/LOVERS SHOULD GO TO THAT HATE WALK AND BRING ALL OF OUR PITS AND SEE WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT THAT!!!!

    • Jesse

      Plastic surgeons would like that and so would KFC

  • Jill Grayson

    Can’t dance, and can’t think. All she is good for apparently is getting knocked up. Ignorant bitch (apologies to female dogs for the insulting comparison)

  • LeVarBurton

    Kate Gosselin is a piece of shit asshole. End of story. We can all move on and recognize her naivety and stupidity without the possibility of change. Can’t wait to see how her poor innocent kids turn out, Hopefully not as hateful backstabbing bitches like here.

  • What a croc of bull! Any breed can be taught to be vicious,I couldn’t ask for a better dog. My three pitties are so loyal and sweet. When will ppl realize its not the dog anymore. Its the owners. Leave the damn breed alone. People make me sick. Ugh! And I am right there with pretty pitties.

  • Diane Texas

    This women is such an idiot,she is nothing she abused her childrens pets and yes she is only trying to cause Jon trouble.He is the better parent.Forget her

  • maryanne_gburg

    As an Emergency room nurse for over 20 years, I can say with certainty that the majority of people treated for dog bites were NOT bitten by bully breed dogs. Kate I am ashamed that a fellow RN would publish something that University based clinical studies have proven inaccurate. Do some research!!!

    • mopsie1

      Come on, she hasn’t actually WORKED in years! Imagine what a crappy nurse she was anyway!

    • Jaloney Caldwell

      Liar Liar PAnts on fire. Read Mortality, Mauling and Maiming by Vicious Dogs, Annals of Surgery April 2011, Conducted by Doctors dear and your individual expereince certainly doesn’t match their review of dog injuries in hospitals over the last 15 years. You do some research and quit cherry picking your facts.

      • survivingstupidpeople

        Did you really just say, “liar…liar…PAnts on fire” and “cherry picking”… I had a much deserved belittling response for you but I’m so distracted by your words… I’ll leave it at that.. I have a visual of you sitting in your moo moo, outstretched pointer finger, lips puckered and alone..definitely alone… and i no longer feel the need to magnify the fact that you are a pathetic, awkward woman whose only social life is likely sitting at your computer feeling self righteous and PIOUS.

  • VegMyt

    I’m a vegan and I run into the perception all the time that vegans only care about animals; and now, thanks mainly to PETA, that veganism as a movement is full of woman-hatred, that it’s OK by vegans to use and degrade women to help animals, etc. Threads like this don’t help that perception. Just sayin’.

  • A

    Kate G. is an idiot. Just watching her handle people in general makes me want to slap her.

  • Lyn Green

    This bird is as thick as the layer of foundation on her face. And considering the orange colour and whitish neck she’s sporting, is pretty darn thick!

  • Have a heart

    Wow! Jealous much Kate?!? How about a “Hate Kate” walk for this obviously ignorant attention whore?!?

  • Caro_lyn

    This woman was an idiot when she was on TV and I see she hasn’t changed any. Maybe one day, probably not in my lifetime, people will start putting the blame exactly where it lays – on the moronic people that neither treat nor train their dogs or their kids properly. In the interim, the dogs suffer.

  • bdochert1

    She needs to get over herself, she used her children to make millions and now she’s a has been and wants to wiggle her way back into the media. Nobody’s interested in you anymore Kate…get a life

  • why is Kate Gosselin a celebrity again? my point who cares what her opinion is, just another lemming like Kelly…. DOGS ARE NOT DANGEROUS ITS THE PEOPLE THAT OWN THEM! seriously people get a grip!! Humans are the biggest danger to society.

  • She was ALWAYS an idiot & this is just another example!!!! She couldn’t raise her children properly, lots of pix of HER abusing them!!!! How dare she even begin to talk about those dogs! She’ll do/say anything to stay in the limelight! She just hasn’t figured out that her “fifteen minutes of fame” ended a couple of years ago!!!! She needs to go away & SHUT UP!

  • Dennis Monello Jr.

    from the same woman who exploited her kids for fame lets just keep that in mind

  • PitbullsAreSWEET

    She was a dumb broad before this comment and now she just solidified what we all already thought of her. An uneducated attention and media whore. Hope someones dog craps on her designer shoes.

  • lacy

    Pit bulls have save lives not hurt them

  • DamaraLovesPitbulls

    SHE’S A NINNY! And, she is certainly NOT a celebrity! Loser.

  • Nancy

    you mean the breeder returned the dogs to her after he found out she abused them? strange…

  • ha! I guess getting fired from her blogging job will never stop her from making ignorant comments. How does one get fired from a blogging job, you might ask? There’s really only one way…by being STUPID. She’s a dumb lady…never watched her gay TV show, but somehow ended up watching a show where she was a guest & she’s a royal B!T(H! Maybe she should focus more on being a mom to those 8 kids instead of commenting on something that she doesn’t know the first thing about. Neglects her kids, her job, her dogs, but not her arrogant self!

  • katepder

    she is as fake as they come even that Kelly Ripa which totally changes my mind of watcher her in the morning…………. I hate dumb people

  • Why is she even considered a “celebrity”??? anything this stupid bitch has an opinion on doesn’t mean a damn thing …she has the morals of an skank!!!

  • Blackboard

    God the education for stupid people never ends! Can we have a walk for dumb celebrities who talk about things they know nothing about?

  • Brickman

    She is an absolute disgrace!!! Apparently she is unaware that most of this country wants to ban her!!!

  • Ariella

    What a dumbass most of the pple who hate on pitties have never actually met one. N by the lols of that pic seems to me that that dog cares more for those kids than the money attention grabbing whore known as their mother!

  • Isn’t her five minutes of fame over and done with?

  • maxiemom

    Why do people pay attention to this air headed dumb ass anyway?

  • Dumps Klown

    were supposed to care what she thinks? She whored her children out for a tv show but were supposed to care what she thinks………

  • pittbulls are now being used as seeing eye dog. they are being trained to help. I have a pit and she has been nothing but my best friend and loves being around children. if you dont know about the breed then you should speak on it

  • Sean Walsh

    Lets ban her & keep the dogs!!

    REALLY? Ya can’t fix stupid…. people are dangerous… not dogs. Can we have a march against dangerous people!? Who’s with me?

  • Valamondo

    This morning I drove past a jogger being attacked by two dachshunds that another woman was walking past her. The jogger was screaming, grabbing her left leg and bleeding. A study by Penn State lists the top three more aggressively behaved dogs – Dachshunds are in the top three; Pit bulls are not.

  • Dumps Klown

    “KATE PLUS HATE”. Its pointless to try and change her mind, she barely has one. Its mainly people like her, (shallow, ignorant, etc.), that are incapable of realizing that its the dog owners fault if the animal has become aggressive towards people. Its never the animal’s fault. But she’s too fucking stupid to ever understand.

  • PrincessJamie0823

    If it was a real celebrity who anyone even cared about, maybe it would be upsetting, but its Kate Gosselin for God’s sake. The only thing she is famous for is spreading her legs to push out a basketball team, to much plastic surgery, having no rhythm, and being a bitch…So, I’ll continue to do what I always have, ignore her and not give her the attention she wishes for.

  • Robyn

    if you think pit bulls are bad i recommend you marry someone just like this barking b!tc#… only thing we ever hear from her is complain complain complain…who could blame her husband for up and leaving… JUS SAYIN!

  • scoopers

    What an idiot you are Kate. You beat your kids with a wooden spoon and you yanked your babies hair and threw them in their cribs and then you say pitbull’s are aggressive….????? I am a dog sitter ( 10 years) and I have been bitten by small dogs, never large ones. It’s the way the dogs are raised. Obviously I can not correct bad behavior when they are with me for such a short time but all dogs that are raised with love are never aggressive. Your poor kids, I hope they become a better parent than you. All your kids know is a mom that is self-centered, bullies, screams and hits her kids. Go to therapy Kate before its to late.

  • Cathy

    Never ending ignorance with this subject. Prejudice and stereotyping. This is pet owner/parent irresponsibility is what it boils down to. Doesn’t matter the breed. And a “Hate walk”? Really? Is this the kind of behavior she will be teaching her litter at home. 8 more people teaching hate. Shame on you Kate!

  • C-girl

    See Kate is still packing the big “L” on her forehead! I think she should stick to doing what she does best and just keep pumping out those kids! This woman makes me sick on so many levels!!!! We should have a walk against dangerous blondes who impact the world in a negative way. Leave the innocent alone and take your personal problems with your ex up in court. You and Kelly Ripa are 2 of the biggest idiots that ever made it on television.

  • scoopers

    Oh and by the way Kate, I have never seen a picture where your child looks so happy, content and loved. When they are with you they are made to stand in a line or sit on a line (who the hell does that?) and forced to smile. Speaks volumes doesn’t it.

  • Rachel

    I have three pits that are around my kids every day. My daughter is best friends with her pit Natra. He is a big dog but also a big baby, she has been with him since the day he was born.

  • KK

    Really she is still around .. Listen lady you have a litter of kids to deal with the LAST thing you need to be worried about are some dogs. Your 15 mins of fame IS OVER!!! Give me a flippen break…. yes this is coming from a PROUD PIT OWNER!!!

  • Janet Shaw

    Bring you kids to my house and see how dangerous they are, she will play and lick you and by the way she is the nanny dog, she literally watch’s my son’s 2 1/2 old god child. she will not ever let the baby go up or down stairs with out being two steps from the baby so the baby doesn’t fall. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU SPEAK.

  • So this whore, who pollutes this earth with her many off spring, has to be negative about pit bulls when really she’s just jealous of another woman?

  • Claire

    What a Bitch. I love my pits. And like any dog, it depends on their owners. I am more scared of more Chihuahua’s than pits. Why? Cause there owners think they’re small and dont bother to train them so they go around biting people. My pit likes kids better than adults, but she is not aggressive towards people. Plays with all the neighborhood kids, and their parents arent even scared of her.

  • Maria Jernberg

    I myself am a pitbull owner and lover and i have to say my pit Sierra is probably the best dog I’ve ever had. People just dont understand that its all on how the owner raises them or any breed. I cant stand it when people stereotype. Get educated lady before you open your mouth. IDIOT!

  • Dave

    Kate has already proved that the only thing she is good at or knows anything about is rolling around between the sheets.

  • robosu

    I’d rather have pit bulls watching out for my kids than humans!

      WOW you should go live in the jungle then if you are so anithuman

      • Erica Cortese

        Wait no we just dislike uneducated big mouth spewing hate!!!!!!

  • MuttMomma

    I am beginning to think that there is no help for some people. They are afraid to admit they are wrong no matter what evidence you put in front of them. They would rather cling to their ignorance. As for me and mine … between us we have 4 Pittys and 3 Weiners and my 6 pound Weiner is boss. LOL

  • lmw333

    She is just looking for another way to get back into the limelight…even if she sounds like a f**king idiot. She is just ignorant…

    I never did think this woman had a brain, but does she have to prove it?

  • Laura Blankenship

    Another ignorant has been trying to keep herself in the spotlight anyway she can.Obviously her talent isn’t keeping her there!!

  • Carolyn Parker

    seriously? She’s dating that freaking moron, who’s going to take her seriously anyhow?

  • Violet G.

    She is an idiot plain and simple! I have been around many different dogs and I have been bitten by small breed dogs twice! We have had 2 pits and they have Never bitten me or children. The next pet we adopt will be a pit from a shelter!

  • Pam

    This woman hates everything including herself!!! It’s not the breed that’s bad it’s the owners!!!!

  • Karen Luke

    And her imput on anything is important, why??

  • Kimberly Timmons

    kate u are a no good bitch that used ur kids for money get a fucking life its not the breed its the deed and the first dog to be given a medal in ww1 was a pit. a pit fought for our country and how does his breed get repaid by dumb bitchies like u talking shit about them get a fucking life u stupid bitch oh and stop using ur kids for money and get a real job.

  • SPINGIRL09

    KATE AND KELLY ARE IDIOTS!

    Who cares what she has to say or tweet? She is irrelevant.

  • Sugarsmom

    can we please have a hate Kate Gosselin day while we’re at it?

  • Angela arenas

    Omfg really I have a pit I have always had pits they are one of the most sweetest dogs ever. The only reason some pits are even like that is cuzz of the owner or over breading my 9 year old pit has been throught hell and back but she is the most nicees dog ever she has been throught Hurricane Katrina and obedience training were they put a shock caller on her and she still lets my 40 lb one year old try and ride her bits her and pulls her tail and she just lays there. I wish people would just pull there head out of there asses please.

  • cjmargarita7

    My pit is the best damn dog I’ve ever owned and he takes alot from my kids! They fall on him, step on him, ride him, use him as a pillow, and a step stool and he never ever reacts to any of it…

  • V Gail Price

    Its sad the backlash these dogs will see & the love the kids will miss from these pups all because this is a high profile issue that will keep them ALL in the news … Such a shame but what else can we expect from a mother who would rather get paid for being in the news because its not good enough to just be a Great Everyday Mom like us Non Celeb’s…. used to supporter her without fail but the more the news story’s hit the more I think these kids might have been better off with there more laid back, tired of the camera’s in their faces father….

  • ilovemypittbull

    I get so fired up about idiot people & their judgement s towards innocent animals when in reality its about how their raised just like how children are raised! maybe she should look more into getting help for her kids who will eventually suffer from being exploited on national television so mommy & daddy can afford & get “famous”! instead of passing judgment on an animal that you “hear” in the news attacked a child when in fact you know nothing about the situation that child could have well been teasing the animal or the animal was raised to hurt people so in that case the pet owner should be penalized & thrown in jail !

  • lucy

    I’ve always supported Kate but….I’ll turn on you faster than any pitbull over this. Cover up your ignorance Kate, be smart and keep your mouth shut over things you know nothing about.

  • Lisa Watson

    These celebs are so misguided and sound so ignorant for the comments they make about PITBULLS. I have had these dogs all my life and it is the owner not the breed. Pisses me off to hear crap like this !!!!!

  • Lisa Watson

    Go Tia for saving Prada.

  • californiac

    What a witch…,.hmmmmm that rhymes with…..hmmmmmm….poisoning puppies??…hmmm maybe there will be something left over for her…this is so ignorant i can’t even say what I would like to say

  • Brenda

    She is an ignorant person. I say we ignore her…at this point, I think she will do anything for publicity…

  • Why is this woman still in the news???? STOP FEEDING THE STUPID!

  • Meg

    I am a proud pitbull owner and would love to intro Ms. Gosselin to her and also to my Chesapeake bay retiever borther and kitty cat brother she was raised with! She is in love with her 2 legged brothers and loves herdogs four legged brothers. Stop the stereotyping! And get with the program!

  • Iloveanimal123

    I have lost repect for Kate Gosslin. I used to admire her. She shouldn’t judge. She doesn’t have one. Just used a stereotype. It depends on how the dog is brough up, ANY dog can be “vicious”

  • keri

    Some people are just straight up idiots! I adopted a pit bull and he is the most loving and loyal dog I could ever have. I have to kids and they can climb and while he is eating they can stick there hands around his mouth and he does nothing! He just wants to be loved like any other dog! I feel that it isn’t the breed of the dog its how they are raised! Whoever thinks this BS is just an asshole! People say to not judge people because they are different why then do you sit her and judge these loving dogs! Shame on you!

  • sean youtt

    ur both r idiots point blank!!!!!!!! if u knew about the breed mayb u would understand the breed!!!!!!! I used to live with a pit bull and she was a sweetheart!!! pit bulls r the most gentle dogs u ever knew its their fuckin idiots owners that make the breed messed up!!!!!! if i were to get any dog it would b a pit bull!!!!!!! go and visit villalobos animal sanctuary!!!!!!!

  • shae

    Why don’t she effing GO AWAY!!! She knows nothing about nothing and is dumb as a dumbbell! These precious animals are misunderstood and we have another airhead who hasn’t a clue about what she’s talking about… money must be involved, that’s all it takes with her. She would “walk against God” if she got paid for it!

  • The Gremlin

    Dogs react to how they are treated. All dogs exude unconditional love. They want to please and they adore the love they recieve in return. Kate Whatsherface needs to stop spreading rumors that she hasn’t explored fully. I am quite sure that he PR Rep was not informed about what she was going to say. He career is basically in the dumper anyways. She destroyed he relationship with Jon all by herself. She needs to wake up and smell the roses and THINK before she speaks. What a ditz!

  • lal

    pitties were bred as “nanny dogs” in the olden days. ’nuff said, idiot.

  • enya

    the best way i have found to teach my children about dogs NOT ALL DOGS lets get that straight before some peroxide blonde jumps on the band wagon ….is that they are a lot like people the BIG ones are very often the gentle giants and the little fluffy ones are very often a bit like small man syndrme and are agressive to make up for their size and to always treat an animal ANY animal with the respect you want to be treated with ….. and while im on my soap box can someone let this female know that peroxide brassy blonde went out in the 70’s uuugghhhh get a grip on life love and do something worth while with your time take yourself off to a shelter / dog rescue and do a few hours voluntary work its so much more full filling than sitting on your ass twittering all day thats if your not too frightend to break a nail or two pppffttttt .

  • Heather Ryley

    As a shelter volunteer I have worked with dozens of Pitt bulls. Many of them had been strays. Most had been beaten, starved, abandoned and overall just mistreated by humans-both adult and children. Being part if intake I was one of the first people these poor dogs interacted with and despite all they had been through vary rarely did they ever show aggression and when they did it was out of fear. Can you blame them? If you did to me HALF of what these dogs had been through I’d beat the sh*t outta of the person but they would only growl and cower in the corner. HOWEVER I have been attacked/bitten SEVERAL times by chihuahuas, dachshunds, poodles and the occasional corgi and NONE of them had ever been abused. Sorry for the long comment but this irks me it’s just a bitter, old, desperate, woman sacrificing the Pitt bull’s, already, diminishing positive reputation of being loving and loyal JUST to get back at her ex whom she treated poorly in the first place. I hope her children don’t end up like her! DOWN WITH THE PITT BULL HATERS!!!!!!

  • Michelle Sullivan

    This woman would back anything if it would buy her publicity! She is media whore who would not know a pitbull over other breeds if her life depended. I would like to see her crawl back into the hole from which she came. Has no one told her that her 15 minutes were up a long time ago??

  • Ashley

    Oh no, Kate. With all those mean comments you might wanna watch out. A pitbull might lick you to death after beating you senseless with its tail. . . Idiot.

  • sierra

    Really?? Is she even still relevant? Was she ever relevant? I can’t believe that anyone even listens to her, really what kind of brainiacs actually listen to this bimbo!!! I hope a Chihuahua bites her nose off so she can see any dog can have a propensity for aggression.

  • Kate Gosselin is a nobody and we all know that – SHe is low in credibility even tho she thinks she is high – We know how realy the truth is when we become INTELLIGENT about the breed and realize that pit bulls are giebn a total bad rap – I am not threatened but I know the pit bulls are – SHe should shame herself – medica hog that she is! PIT BULLS are super dogs – the ower of a dog is responsible for its behavior and if a dog has been bred to fight and been iltreated so that it’s behavior is threatening – PEOPLE are to blame – NOT THE DOG!!! THis disgusts me!

  • Kate you can go straight to Hell you are a ignorant Bitch and think you are the Queen well you are nothing but a piece of shit. No one wants to hear or see your ugly face bitch. So what the Father has a Pit thats his business not yours.May be if you mind your own Business and instead of everyone elses. Why do you think they got rid of you your mouth no one likes you.Your own family wants nothing to do with you so i hope this will be the last time the World see’s your ugly fake ass … Get a job and a life.

  • ESther Harrell Tartaglia

    She is just mad becacuse her ex husband has a new girlfriend with a pit . What a stupid thing to say that pIt bulls are dangerous. , It is how they are raised. They are wonderful around children. If you keep up with the stupid comments, you won’t have to worry about any future shows. YOu just showed how stupid you are. YOu sound like a stupid ex wife that is mad because he left you. YOu sound like a idiot. Anyone who wants to walk with it is another moron..

  • Emily C.

    Just another completely uneducated so called “celebrity” jumping on a misguided bandwagon. Perhaps its time for these worthless morons to realize that it is not the dog that is dangerous it is the irresponsible owners who do not take the time to properly train these dogs. Maybe they should check the stats on dog bites and see that by percentage children and adults are more likely to be attacked by small breed dogs such as chihuahuas, pugs, shih tzus etc. Please get a clue before you shoot your mouths off.

  • Emily Caruso

    This is the same woman who’s “show” was cancelled and was fired from her most recent job. Seems to me she cant get anything right and is proving it every time she opens her ignorant mouth. She will keep jumping on bandwagons to stay in the spotlight. What a piece of s#&t.

  • Xiahko

    I am pretty sure no one gives two shits about Kate or what she has to say.

  • Sherlocktoo

    Another not-so-smart “celebrity”.

  • She is an absolute idiot who deserves NO media attention at all!

  • Fayclis

    Canadian Pet Training Assoc picked these dogs are one of the top ten to have around chidren when raised in a family envirorment. Used to Like Kate plus 8 but NO more. Hey Kate, a picture IS worth a thousand words and ten thousand tweets.

  • F U Kate

    Eff you Kate, you worthless dried up POS, as long as your kids stay away from you and you let the nannies raise them, they should be ok

  • forSienna

    You know what’s more dangerous to your kids, Kate? Pimping them out on a reality Tv show! Pits are very sweet dogs, mine is more likely to lick someone to death than show any kind of aggression.

  • mb

    Celebrity, Gosselin is NOT a celebrity. SHe needs to get this through her head and stop making stupid comments when she knows nothing about the breed.

  • jen

    I would take 8 Pit Bulls over 8 human children any day! I’ve been rescuing and fostering Pits for almost 3 years and have NEVER been bitten by one. Even ones who have most likely been used as bait dogs or flunked out of being a fighting dog. Dogs are very resilient. (That doesn’t mean it’s okay to abuse them!!)

  • lisa

    My so called “vicious” pit bull mix was attacked by a Husky the other day and had four punctures on her face and mouth, and yet she SOMEHOW managed to do absolutely nothing to the dog attacking her – which one is the damn “bully”?? I wish people weren’t so stupid.

  • What kind of experience do these celebs have with pitties? They probably could not even correctly pick one out of a line up. Kate go home and take care of your poor babies that you used to get rich with! You are more dangerous than a pitbull!

  • shellie

    That woman has no brain cells so nothing intelligent comes out of her mouth. I have a beautiful pittie and wouldn’t part with her for anything. And she is around my grandchildren all the time!!! Kate Gosselin is an ass bag!!!!!

  • ackgirl22

    I think that before these big shot actors and actress open therebig mouths they should do a little more research and they would see just how loving a pitbull really is I am a very proud pitbull owner I wouldn’t have it any other way

  • Really, who cares about what KG has to say?

  • <3PITBULLS<3

    kate is a disgusting human being who puts her happiness and needs before her children. if it wasn’t for the fact that network cancelled her show she would still be on tv. a dog is a dog no matter the breed. every dog can attack a person. pit bulls are only accountable for 2000 of the 15000 dog attacks reported each year. people need to educate themselves with FACTS before spreading the lies they hear.

  • JB

    This is EXACTLY why I do not support any star in any manner, I do not buy movies, I do not pay for movies, they are all a bunch of IDIOTS, and they think that everyone is interested in what they have to say on any given subject. Well, I just happen to be EDUCATED, and I have been BLESSED with common sense, and I m so busy with living LIFE with REAL people and 7 dogs I have rescued, I don’t have the time or inclination to support or listen to these IDIOTS. You people supporting all of them, you just make it worse, because something about too much money, and people loose their minds. She is another waste. She like others are so BUSY believing what they read, and don’t do their own research, but real quick to open their fat mouth. Just like guns, they don’t kill people unless a HUMAN pulls the trigger. If you don’t know how to approach a dog GET AN EDUCATION. Bunch of STUPID, MINDLESS, IDIOTS.

  • JB

    Another thing. If every family in America with children had a Pit Bull, their kids could play in the front yard, and you would have very little worry of CHILD ABDUCTION. They are the best Nanny dogs EVER. Stupid uneducated IDIOTS. They are all sheeples.

  • Seriously!

    Maybe someone should form a “Hate Kate” walk! She’s just mad because she’s not in the spotlight any more!

  • Lindsay

    F*ck you Kate!! Should have never watched your show! Your a angry fake b*tch!
    Happy Jon found someone! Your kids are lucky to have another female for a role model because you sure aren’t one! Pits are one of the friendliest breeds out there! Do some research then talk! As for you, you decided to air your bullshit on national TV!! DONT HATE ON A BREED BECAUSE YOURE JEALOUS YOUR EX IS HAPPY!

  • Sharon Collette

    ignorance is bliss 🙁 these poor dogs are great!!!! pit bulls rock !!!

  • Guest

    Sounds like a jealous ex to me.I got 5 pits myself would not hurt a fly.She needs to research pit information first.With her attitude If I was her ex I’d feel better leaving the kids with the dog.She sounds bitter and her and others like her that don’t know their but from a hole in the ground piss me off.LEAVE THE PITS ALONE!!!!!!!!!

  • It sound like a bitter ol’ jealous ex to me but that still don’t give her reason go and slander the pits a little bit more..her and people like her really need to get a CLUE!!! DON’T DISS IT UNLESS YOU’VE TRIED IT..I own 2 pits myself and they are sweeter than most humans I’ve met..Honestly I’d trust my pits to babysit my kids over her any day!!! I wouldn’t own any other breed of dog!!

  • scoobidy

    She is such a STUPID, self centered B I T C H! Not only is she incredibly annoying, but now it appears she is equally as ignorant. I wish her 15 minutes would be over! I can’t stand this trouble maker. Please make her go away!!!

  • Chef David Edelstein

    Ms Gosselin has obviously been hitting the bleach to hard and it seeped into her make shift grey matter. What she is really pissed about is her ignorance about things she doesnt have a clue about panned out to be just that: Ignorance. More so… anyone who lives their life dictated by what they read on twitter is even more ignorant.

  • Sunny

    She needs to worry about her own litter and leave Pit Bulls alone!

  • Mimi

    Wow. What a bitch. Pitbulls are loveable dogs, as are any breed WHEN THEY ARE BRED CORRECTLY. Any dog. /Any dog/ can be viscous IF it is not raised and bred properly. Get. your damned facts. straight. It is never the dogs fault, it is the people who neglect and hurt said dog. No dog cries out to be abused or mistreated. All start out as loveable creatures. It’s the owners job to take care of the animal and make sure it is fit for homes. Thus, any breed is capable of these conditions. It is when stupid people decide to neglect, abuse, and hurt these animals that they show signs of being aggressive. And any dog is capable of this, if you mistreat it. Stop hating.

  • Tanya Rhynes

    consider the source, the pits are smarter than she is!!!!!

  • Regina Rizzolo

    No one ever said Kate was an intelligent person. She is a bitter has been hag who can’t stand that her ex is happy with someone who genuinely loves animals and her kids. Its a shame she can’t get past her own inner ugly.

  • Shame on her. She needs to stick with topics that she has a clue about. Obviously dogs are not one of those.

  • patty yuraitis

    She was stupid during her own show and she is being stupid once again with the “hate walk”…hate on Michael Vic, not INNOCENT DOGS…..she will never change her stupid…her stupid is forever I think.

  • patty yuraitis

    Kate was stupid with her show and now yet again she is being stupid…..I am afraid her stupid is forever….she should be hating on Michael Vic & others for doing damage to these dogs character in the first place. Kate aren’t you tired of being stupid and unaware?????

  • Marsha Scott-Starks

    celebrity does not equal smart, especially in her case

  • F@#king Ignorance!! Just like another form of Racism don’t judge these animals by their Breed name. And Kate you are an IDIOT!!

  • Poor Pits…Doesn’t surprise me one bit though – people are stupid enough to hurt each other WORSE than ANY ANIMAL COULD, and yet we call PITBULLS the killers. WTF is wrong with people? Seriously…stop drinking the dumbf$*@ Kool-aid and get a clue.

  • Sarah

    That is okay, my pitt bulls hate women who are so plastic that they would melt in the sun.

  • dianebonneau

    shes nobody but a jerk anyway……

  • this is what pisses me off is that people dont realize that any dog can attack but because of people like her and michael vick who make pit bulls look bad and ive had 3 of them and all three were lovers.

  • shasmith95

    No one would listen to her until now. She so desperately needs attention and how else than using her kids for that. Loser. Does she know what inherently means?

  • Imdomsmom

    still don’t understand the uninformed out there. Pits have been called the ‘nanny dog’ for years and kept guard over royalties children. Just like any dog, you have to be the pack leader in your home. If you’re not, ANY breed of dog will take over as such and become aggressive. I have seen it from tiny dogs to the biggest ones.

  • asnoballschance

    Plastic surgery can fix a lot of things but it can’t fix nasty!!!

  • Bayliebugg

    Wow…what a moron, class A moron. She doesn’t care about her kids, why would she care about dogs? She’s only doing it for the attention. Way to go Jon and his new woman. Atleast your kids won’t be morons.

  • Nancy

    Really, she is just jealous and the truth of the matter is yes a shepard can turn on it’s owner even if mistreated pits are not getting a fair deal at all and no i dont own 1 but i wouldnt have a problem adopting 1. and what monica said maybe someone should organize a walk for ignorant people

  • I hope she falls into a woodchipper.

  • Oh, as I just posted on my FailBook page, dog owners (of ALL breeds) should unite & hold a “LOVE walk” & ignore this vapid, over plasticized PoS! Do not give her another second in the limelight or connect anything to her or her name, be it positive or negative, because it has proven that if she is ignored; the media keep her hidden & out of sight.

  • Del

    I use to like Kate but not anymore. I am alive today and so is my brother because our pitbull save our lives from a huge German Shepherd mix. I have and will always have a pit in my life. I took my pit out trick or treating and she loved every child that came up and hugged her. She would not keep her eye of her cousins but would stop to give every child a kiss. It is the way they are raised and ANY dog can attack no matter what breed. I’ve seen a family German Shepherd rip my little friend up in front of me when I was 6. My father was also attack by one when he was a kid. I love all dogs but am a little afraid of German Shepherds but I don’t hate them and that what breed Kate has around her children. PUNISH THE DEED NO THE BREED!!!!

  • Laura Bickel

    We have two pit bulls in the family. One is the sweetest animal you will ever meet in your life without a mean bone in his body, the other is owned by my four year old granddaughter. He’s a little over a year old himself, is extremely careful around her and listens to her better than he does anyone else. Neither of these dogs will even chase a cat. These are very loving intelligent dogs who are only aggressive if abused or mistreated.

  • mancho

    When your career sinks, you either go vegetarian or profess that you super love animals to get back in the limelight!

  • Theresa

    People need to stop hating the breed and take a look in the mirror at themselves. Pit bull puppies are not born aggressive. People are the ones we need to worry about. People that talk smack should just shut up.

  • Max Gold

    It’s the OWNERS of Pitbulls that are HATED, not the breed of dog they regularly exploit. HATING those that have enabled many men, women, children and animals to be brutally attacked, maimed, mauled and killed is the most natural thing to do. Those who are attracted to fighting breeds of dog and have enabled decades of serious injuries and fatalities deserve to be despised and HATED.

  • Jaloney Caldwell

    It wasn’t a hate walk it was a LOVE walk.. LOVERS of safe sidewalks and children who grow up with their faces and scalps intact. Mortality, Mauling and Maiming by Vicious Dogs, Annals of Surgery, April 2011 found that pitbulls are removing a persons body part every four day nows, and their review of dog injuries in hospitals over the past 15 years found that pitbulls cause the most death, disfigurement, permanent disability, and the highest hospital charges of all dogs. In additon it found it is family loved, and unabused pits that suddenly attack and that they attack children unprovoked 2 and a half times more often than other breeds, and attack their owners 6 times more often than other breeds. In addtion the study found that you have a more than 2500 times higher chance of dying if attacked by a ptbull instead of Labador. yeah yeah the denial crowd will deny every fact these PhD’s uncovered.. Just like Darla Napora of the pit bull advocacy group.. some pitbull owners learn their lessons the hard way: Darla was killed by her raised from a puppy ptbull. Heck even Racheal Ray.. a millionaire with a paid handler for her pitbull had to pay off people after her dog attacked FIVE seperate times ON leash. Plastic surgeons are speaking out about pitbuls too cause they hold on and remove so much flesh they can’t fix the victims up again. Pitbulls are like cigarettes.. a fad that is for fools.. we have learned the facts about pitbulls and NOONE can predict which pitbulls will suddenly express their hidden fighting DNA.. so keeping pitbulls away from your kids is sensible, loving, kind behavior that Kate should be applauded for.. also for not being a wimp and bowing down to the pitbull bullies who group their loud voices together on an international basis forgetting that this still doesn’t make their voices larger than those who care about the common good for all. Miami Dade Florida showed pitbull groupies and politicans that they can make a lot of noise but locals want pitbull bans because they work. Miami Dade has not had a pitbull mauling in 23 years. All dogs do not bite, pitbulls Maul.

  • When will people realize it’s NOT the breeds but the trash that own the breeds that make them aggressive?? Ignorant people make a situation like this so much worse. Oh & as far as kate whatever her name is, she is a washed up reality tv bag looking for anyway to get recognized & clearly hating on her ex’s dogs cuz she is jealous!!

  • Cynthia Marie Bratsch

    JUST BECAUSE THESE RICH BRAIN DEAD PEOPLE DONT LIKE PITS DOESNT MAKE PITS MEAN. KATE SHUT UR HOLE.

  • Hmmm…maybe we should do this with people…If a white man beats his wife all white men will have to go to jail. If a black man shoots someone all the black men have to go to jail, etc…Oh wait thats not okay? Did I just offend you? Ok well check this out….I own 2 pit bulls and consider myself to be a MORE than responsible dog owner. I am well aware that owning a dog of this breed comes with certain responsibilities you don’t have when you own a calmer breed. However a pit bull is a DOG first and foremost and will follow a strong master. The biggest problem with pit bulls is ignorant and weak owners. People don’t realize a pit bull will easily scale a 6 foot fence out of boredom(which is why they shouldn’t be left in a back yard as a guard dog) people also don’t realize they require A TON of exercise and even more they require boundaries and strict rules. So I guess my point here is just because some dogs go bad doesn’t mean they are all inherently bad. Most times I believe the pits that get into trouble have owners who are not capable of handling them. Remember that racism comes in all forms…

  • What can you expect from a brainless non-celebrity has been that never was? Breed specific legislation does not work. It is the equivalent of racial profiling and endangers the safety of family pets. Do not judge the entire breed for the actions, usually due to bad pet owners, of one dog. Ignorance is not bliss it is dangerous. Education is key to a civil and uplifted society.

  • LindaDann

    Don’t think anyone can ‘educate’ that woman- and I am quite certain those kids are so in need of love that nnow it’s probably that degree of devotion- that pit bull love that is the only thing that can fill them up and give them the security that it will always be there and it’s not for ‘show.’

  • FL

    People that want to demonize Pit Bulls have it all wrong. Target puppy mills, target people that train them for fighting, imprison people that neglect their animals and allow them to become dangerous. But this is true for people that own German Shepards, Pugs, Poodles, Rotties, etc. If you own a dog, you have a responsibility to it and society to raise it right. And know the history before shooting your mouth off: Pits were one of the most popular breeds in the US (1800s to 1930s), and even used as nannies for children. They are very intelligent (mental ability of a small child) and require a master that isn’t lazy and will take the time to work with them, but this is true of all large working type breeds. As for Gosselin, she’s just a media leech trying to keep her name attached to something.

  • Sweetie Pie

    Typical pit bull fan: invent lies about anyone who states the facts about pit bulls. It’s a disgusting form of bullying. The only people who spread misinformation about pit bulls are the pit bull fans. That’s why so many children are dying and being disfigured by pit bulls nowadays. Fifteen killed so far this year, and the years isn’t over yet. Gosselin is right to be angry and right to speak out. Shame on you for only having lies and personal attack as a retort.

      Do you know how many pitbulls live in this country or worldwide for that matter? Let me just throw out a number as an example. Say there are 400,00 pitbulls in the US and 15 attacks happen a year. How is that the BREEDS fault then?? It’s the owners fault and THEY should be the ones punished!!!!

  • thepitbullvictimsfoundationinc

    Isn’t it funny how only pit bull owners and advocates try to twist a walk for victims into a hate walk. I guess it shows that they realize the truth of just how inherently dangerous these dogs are and so they scream and rage when ever anyone tries to help the victims of their dogs.

    It is truly sad that a few would put the life of a dog above the life of a child.

  • bettyroug54

    I clicked into this because it surprises me that anyone would actually listen to this twit. ANY BREED of dog can be dangerous if they are raised by incompetent owners. Chalk another one up for ignorant people.

    RANDALL LOCKWOOD, PhD

    Randall Lockwood, who said he has witnessed the best and worst of pit bulls, said illegal dog-fighting is perpetuating dogs that are hazards to humans and other animals. Shaped by dog-fight enthusiasts, they are “a perversion of everything normal dogs should do. What they’ve created is a canine psychopath.”

    “Fighting dogs lie all the time. I experienced it first hand when I was investigating three pit bulls that killed a little boy in Georgia. When I went up to do an initial evaluation of the dog’s behavior, the dog came up to the front of the fence, gave me a nice little tail wag and a “play bow” — a little solicitation, a little greeting. As I got closer, he lunged for my face.”

    The pit bull, in its purebred or mixed form, has been responsible for most of the fatal dog attacks on humans in the last two years. In 1987, there were eight deaths from dog attacks in the country, and seven involved pit bulls. In 1986, there were 13 deaths, seven involving pit bulls. But pit bulls have been victimized by hype.

    The dogs are no strangers to ordinances. A pit bull ban was passed in London in the 1400s.

    These dogs can be canine crocodiles. They have a dark and bloody history.

    In the United States, pets are considered property in the eyes of the law. And one of the most hotly defended rights of the individual is the right to own anything, no matter how stupid or dangerous the choice — even when what someone wants to own is a threat to them, their family, and the community around them.

    • Kristi Renee Williams

      Guns are a threat yet people have them in their homes, knives too. What I am trying to say is it depends on the owners. Please read the book Ruby’s tale. It is about an amazing dog in the Minneapolis/St.Paul area. Maybe she could change your mind a little bit. Unless you are to close minded.

    • survivingstupidpeople

      blah blah blah you sound like All the Stepford pitt Haters ..on Joney Firepants page..as it turns out she has spent pretty much all her energy for the last cpl years running Pitt Bull Hate propaganda and you sound like one of her robots. Do you even know how to have your own thought..experience? Or do you just quote other people

  • Dennis Baker

    HUGH WIRTH, veterinarian
    RSPCA Victoria president Dr Hugh Wirth said the dogs were a menace and were not suitable as pets for anyone.

    “They are time bombs waiting for the right circumstances.”

    “The American pit bull terrier is lethal because it was a breed that was developed purely for dog fighting, in other words killing the opposition.

    “They should never have been allowed into the country. They are an absolute menace.”

    “The fact of life is that the community doesn’t want American pit bull terriers. They’ve said it loud and clear over and over again – they want them banned.”

  • As someone who works in the veterinary profession, I will say I have never once in my career worked with an aggressive pit bull. They are typically very easy to handle once they stop licking your face. For the record, it the little shit dogs that people don’t bother to train that are the more aggressive and dangerous. We just had a girl go to the hospital requiring stitches because of a severe bite from a chihuahua that wouldn’t let go of her hand (all we were trying to do was give it’s annual vaccines!). People create the dangerous dogs, not the breed.

  • Jodi Morey

    honestly like anybody really cares what Kate Gosselin has to say!!!! I mean really she couldn’t even be a reality star right.
    Also I have kids and pit bulls and my dog and my daughter are like best friends, I can honestly say that my dog would probably die for my daughter.

    The thing that upsets me the most about this is that the people that talk bad about pit bulls never even met one, they have never even been around a pit, at least not one that has a responsible owner that treats their dog right. And yet they sit here and say how horrible and dangerous they are based on what the news says or stereotypes. This is why when I start my veterinarian clinic and rescue I am going to open a education center to train people about pit bulls and show them how sweet they are and how to be responsible pit bull owners. And hopefully they can realize that pit bulls aren’t all bad

    • Kristi Renee Williams

      I have fostered many pitbulls in my days and a majority of the time we would approach someone and they would fall in love with that dog. That is until I said it was a pitbull. My experience is that most people don’t even know what one looks like. My current foster is a pit and I have had people ask if she is a Rottweiler. She is short and a red pit. Rotties are black and red….made me laugh.

  • Wendy Medina Garcia

    PIT BULLS ARE AWESOME! IT’S STUPID AND IGNORANT PEOPLE WHO ARE THE PROBLEM!

  • Wendy Medina Garcia

    Send Cesar Millan to teach her about Pit bulls!

  • Kristi Renee Williams

    Jaloney….please read the book Ruby’s Tale. Not all pitbulls are bad and this dog and her owner will prove it. Ruby has done amazing things.

  • Gail F

    I can see how dangerous the pit bull in the photo is; it might lick Kate Gosselin’s child to death.

  • whittler

    Why in the world would ANYONE even care what Kate Gosselin has to say about anything and why does she get any coverage at all? If not for having a passle of her own “pups” which gained her notoriety, no one would even know who she is. Ignore her.

  • Ame Rychlak

    How about pics of children who are victims of abusive and neglectful PEOPLE or Car Accidents, Drownings. There are countless images of those available MANY more than the counted number of dog attacks.

  • Dustin

    I own two pitbulls the only aggresion my dogs have ever shown is when they stopped a black lab from attacking my 4 year old niece

  • Sheila Underwood

    It’s amazing how many they let stupid ppl post their comments. More shepards kill animals and injure kids than any pit bull. I have rescued for a long time now and stupid ppl come with the territory. I guess freedom of speech among stupid asses runs rampant….

  • Kylie

    Jaloney and Jesse and every other ignorant person who has made ridiculous statements and posted their “facts”. Where exactly did you get these facts? Seems to me like they’ve either been taken off of anti-pit websites, from skewed studies, or even pulled out of your own asses.

    Simple facts are this: very, very few dogs can be breed identified based on looks alone – if they aren’t purebloods with papers and known lineage, then it’s a crap shoot. Even experts are hard pressed to give anything but a best guess – and even then, they are extremely frequently incorrect. Want to know what breed that dog is? DNA test. That’s what you are going to need. You are obviously going on the same theory as other dog-ignorant people – that any dog that even remotely *resembles* what you think is a pit bull therefore must be a pit bull. This is simply incorrect.

    The term “pit bull” is incorrectly used by the general public. Technically, that term only truly applies to three breeds of dogs, the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Thus, the vast majority of dogs deemed “pit bulls” by the general public actually are not. All that being said, however, the breed(s) are irrelevant – ANY dog can bite, maul, or kill. ANY.

    As for dog bites/attacks/maulings/fatalities: whatever source you are using for your quoted “facts” are terribly skewed. If you are looking at reports from animal control facilities, or police departments, or hey, I saw you were talking about emergency rooms…for one thing, you’re only seeing the *reported* incidents. For another, those reports are based upon what information was given. Directly related to this is the point above – someone goes to the ER with a dog bite and says a pitbull bit them – whether or not it actually was a pitbull – that is what gets reported. And most people in the general public cannot recognize the true breed of a dog. I have a neighbour, for example, that doesn’t even come close to recognizing a possible breed of any dog, ever. I have an Australian Cattle Dog and she truly believes she is part Husky, which she is not. So that simple fact of breed recognition is a huge factor in the inaccuracy of these “reports”. Also, as I mentioned, these statistics you quote are only the reported incidents. More people freak out over what they think is a pit bull than any other breed, so if the neighbour’s Pomeranian chased their kid and bit it’s ankle they’re far less likely to flip out over it. That’s simple fact, based upon misinformation and the same BS that you, and you, and Kate G. and Kelly Ripa and countless other ignorant people spread.

    Next, if you want factual statistics, the reliable sources would be the American Humane Association, who delivers statistics without breed partiality. They have no interest in whether one breed is considered more aggressive than another. Right on their website you can see the following information:

    Dog bite statistics:
    An estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year
    Nearly 800,000 dog bites require medical care
    Approximately 92% of fatal dog attacks involved male dogs, 94% of which were not neutered
    Approximately 25% of fatal dog attacks involved chained dogs
    Approximately 71% of bites occur to the extremities (arms, legs, hands, feet)
    Approximately two-thirds of bites occurred on or near the victim’s property, and most victims knew the dog
    The insurance industry pays more than $1 billion in dog-bite claims each year
    At least 25 different breeds of dogs have been involved in the 238 dog-bite-related fatalities in the U.S.
    Approximately 24% of human deaths involved unrestrained dogs off of their owners’ property
    Approximately 58% of human deaths involved unrestrained dogs on their owners’ property

    Breed-specific legislation (BSL):
    In response to these statistics, many communities have enacted breed-specific legislation (BSL) that prohibits ownership of certain breeds, such as pit bulls, Rottweilers and others.
    Any breed of dog can bite, and research suggests BSL does little to protect the community from dog-bite incidents.
    In fact, BSL can often have unintended consequences — such as black-market interest and indiscriminant breeding practices — resulting in subsequent breed overpopulation that leads to increases in the number of homeless, stray and euthanized dogs.
    Enforcement of BSL has been shown to be very costly and extremely difficult to enforce. One county in Maryland spent more than $560,000 maintaining pit bulls (not including payroll, cross-agency costs and utilities), while fees generated only $35,000.
    Responsible breeding and ownership, public education and enforcement of existing laws are the most effective ways of reducing dog bites.
    American Humane supports local legislation to protect communities from dangerous animals, but does not advocate laws that target specific breeds of dogs.

    Dog bites and children:
    50% of dog attacks involved children under 12 years old
    82% of dog bites treated in the emergency room involved children under 15 years old
    70% of dog-bite fatalities occurred among children under 10 years old
    Bite rates are dramatically higher among children who are 5 to 9 years old
    Unsupervised newborns were 370 times more likely than an adult to be killed by a dog
    65% of bites among children occur to the head and neck
    Boys under the age of 15 years old are bitten more often than girls of the same age

    You can also look at the American Temperament Test Society studies, that does specific temperament tests on a wide variety of breeds, using every day situations. Currently, these are the results of their temperament tests on the three “pitbull” breeds I mentioned above. Of those tested, the percentage of dogs that passed the temperament testing were: Staffordshire Bull Terrier, 90% passed; American Staffordshire Terrier, 84% passed; American Pit Bull Terrier, 86% passed. Compare that to…as one example, the Bearded Collie, of which only 54% passed. Now those are facts.

    I could go on…but I think the point here is that the issue isn’t bad dogs – it’s ignorance, misinformation, irresponsible owners and irresponsible people in general. Kids need to be taught how to be around dogs, they’re not people after all. Parents need to be responsible and watch their kids, teach them, especially teach them not to taunt or harass – I have this problem in my own neighborhood. Horrible children being horrible to a neighbour’s dog, and saying the dog is mean – he’s not mean at all, but if someone treated me the way they have treated him, I’d probably bite them myself. Pet parents need to be responsible and train their dogs, not ignore them, not let them run free, not chain them, not abuse them. Put the responsibility where it belongs. On people.

    And next time you open your mouth, back up what you have to say.

  • TJ Stevens

    STUPID, STUPID BOTTLE BLONDE! Ignorance is NOT bliss dummy. Instead of trying to be in the “in crowd” why don’t you be a more intelligent and informed person. People in your position can do much, much good or major damage to anything they touch. In this case…….you just showed how stupid you are. Too bad for you.

  • who cares, some washed up has ben is wanting some attention.
    I’ll ply along. ok, you don’t like pit bulls cause they’re evil, mean vicious. but whoever did your make up is a artist. And your ex is a bad father, but he’s at home playing with his kids while your crying all over the internet cuz he got them a puppy. Get a clue. Oh yeah by the way, most victims as you call them only get bit cuz they are completely retarded. hey look, a strange dog, let’s go piss it off and see what happens. Yeah some Pitts are mean. they are raised to be. they are called gard dogs. same with rotts Dobermans, and chows. are they bad dogs too? or just good at their jobs unlike you. if you had tallent then you’d be working, not tweeting dumb stuff like a teenager. in short F-U and have a nice day. 🙂

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to share this story. Chance is my dog. You may share it as well. He was abused and used as a bait dog by people in the Houston Texas 5th Ward. He now has a home and already made a DARE appearance for 5th graders at the local elementary school. Fox 4 News out of Galesberg IL did a story about the people who rescued him and he’s a wonderful soul. Thanks everyone.

  • I didn’t figure Kate Gosselin as a compassionate person. She had a goal in life, to put her DNA on the planet big time, and nothing would stand in her way, not even her husband, who wanted to stop after 2 kids. I saw the way she treated him, and the ‘family dogs’ were only added for the sake of the show. If she cared in the first place, the dogs would have been rescued, not purchased.

  • Jewelz Smith

    Kate is a crazy unhinged imbecile

    There was a walk against breed ban’s in Washington about a year ago. Thousands of people walked to end discrimination and profiling of responsible people’s innocent family pets.
