Aaron Carter is speaking out. https://t.co/HM8I6YO8IH— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) August 5, 2019
He is under fire for allegations that he's been adopting dogs and reselling them to new owners for a profit.
Carter insists that the comments he made were a joke.
He's not flipping dogs for profit, because he doesn't need side hustles to make money.
Hi 👋🏼. I still have this handsome pup 🐶, I think what I said was taken out of context. It is amazing how much love and laughter our pets bring into our lives. It would Never be a quick money grab 🤷🏼♂️ always about the animal and their well being. 💙🐕— 𝒦𝒾𝒟 𝒞𝒶𝑅𝒯ë𝑅 (@aaroncarter) August 4, 2019
I think it’s apalling that I actually even have to explain myself I’ve rescued many dogs & found many dogs homes. what I said in my Instagram live video was a joke. Find one dog that I adopted and sold for money, be my guest. WONT HAPPEN. I’m a good person and i deserve respect.— 𝒦𝒾𝒟 𝒞𝒶𝑅𝒯ë𝑅 (@aaroncarter) August 4, 2019
And with all due respect I own a home I make over $3 million a year I don’t need to sell a dog for money so have some respect and don’t try to slander my name because I will defend myself and I will take legal action. DONT TRY IT. So back the fuck off... gn— 𝒦𝒾𝒟 𝒞𝒶𝑅𝒯ë𝑅 (@aaroncarter) August 4, 2019
