Chrissy Teigen Slammed By Animal Rights Group After Welcoming New Dog Over THIS Reason
Chrissy Teigen is facing another controversy following her cyberbullying issue, but this time, it's because of her new dog.
Recently, Teigen and John Legend were happy to announce the latest addition to their family, a dog named Pearl.
Following this, an animal rights group called People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has issued a statement saying that their group is condemning Teigen's actions and even calling her "selfish" as the dog was "purchased," not adopted.
"It's disappointing that Chrissy Teigen threw away an opportunity to show a little compassion by opening her heart and her Beverly Hills mansion to a rescued dog," Senior Director Stephani Bell wrote on the group's website.
"millions of animals are waiting in shelters and dying for the lack of loving homes." They added.
At the time of this writing, Chrissy Teigen has not reacted to PETA's statement.
What's The Problem With "Purchasing" a Dog?
According to Dog o' Day, millions of homeless cats and dogs in animal shelters are ready to be adopted.
Famous celebrities like Chris Evans and Chrishell Stause adopted their pets in the past and advocated for the "adopt don't shop" movement.
Pearl Is The Newest Addition To Chrissy Teigen's Family

Teigen and Legend's son, Miles Theodore, is also enjoying his new friend, as seen on the model's Instagram stories.
