The Truth Will Set You Free
24 January 2017 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I can't believe how easily people are brain washed by a gossip magazine! TMZ lied! They altered the video to make it look like the dog was being abused. Check the facts before you open your mouth!!! TMZ has come out with the truth and the director has also explained how the video was manipulated. PETA should not have a say in anything, after all they kill most of the animals that they actually "rescue."

Get the facts from reliable sources not a gossip magazine! Don't blindly follow the crowd like sheep and be manipulated by what others say, do your research!

I'm supporting this movie! The message it self is worth watching.
