Kaley Cuoco is the proud owner of three pit bulls, Shirley, Loretta and Norman. So when TIME magazine published an article this week entitled “The Problem With Pit Bulls,” which advocates for breed-specific sterilization, the “Big Bang Theory” actress took offense.
“Many of u asked if I read the #time article about ‘killer pit bulls’. I just did. have to take a twitter break. Can’t stomach this anymore,” Cuoco tweeted.
The article starts off with a horrible story that happened at a KFC recently, in which a 3-year-old survivor of a pit bull attack was asked to leave by an employee who said “her face is disrupting our customers.”
The author, Charlotte Alter, then brings up what she feels is the bigger issue in this story.
“It’s horrible that KFC kicked out that 3-year-old girl, but let’s focus on the real problem: pit bulls were bred to be violent,” she wrote.
Cuoco is no stranger to fighting back against negative pit bull stereotypes. Back in 2012, she also expressed her disapproval when Kelly Ripa made this comment on her morning show:
“But the gangster’s dog is uh, I mean if it’s a gangster it would have to be a dangerous, uh, Pit Bull kind of dog, right?”
The actress tweeted that she was “completely heart broken and disappointed.”
Speaking about her dogs on “The Ellen Degeneres Show”, Cuoco was gushing like a proud mom.
“I love them. I think they’re the greatest dogs in the world… the friendliest, sweetest – I think it’s all in how you raise them.”
