Actor Ricky Gervais is not one to mince words about anything, especially animal welfare. The British actor has spoken out loudly against animal testing for cosmetics, fur coats, and bull fighting, and also teamed up with PETA and Humane Society International for public service announcements. Recently he tweeted his frustrations over dog breed discrimination.

“All dogs are basically good. Your treatment of them determines whether they stay that way or not. It’s the same with people.”

While some people may not particularly like Gervais’s blunt approach to these issues, it’s refreshing when a celebrity isn’t shy about doing the right thing. In this case, Gervais is correct: any breed of dog can attack and fight if that is how that dog is trained.

Check out StopBSL.org to read the truth behind many myths surrounding “bully breeds,” and breed specific legislation. Don’t Bully My Breed is another organization working to destigmatize pit bulls.
