Influencer Accused of Threatening to Kill Defenseless Dog Must be Taken Off Instagram

Target: Adam Mosser, Head of Instagram

Goal: Prohibit content and users that promote abuse and exploitation of animals.

A social media influencer allegedly abused and threatened the life of her pet dog Max to gain more followers and fame. She has been charged with animal cruelty. The site she reportedly used to perpetrate these crimes, however, is still providing her a platform.

Instagram personality Lovely Peaches (real name Brittany Johnson) was arrested in early 2021 after videos emerged on the site of Johnson seemingly grabbing her dog’s neck and dousing his eyes with perfume. She also reportedly claimed she had broken the animal’s legs and even apparently threatened to kill him on-camera. A message posted to her account after these troubling events allegedly said, “As I Posted On My Personal Max is no Longer With Us Rip Buddy.”

Thankfully, this claim that the dog had been killed was not true. After outraged viewers of the videos complained, Johnson was taken into custody and surrendered her dog. When asked why she made the videos, the influencer reportedly told them “cause I knew it would get me attention on the internet.” Unfortunately, Johnson’s apparent ploy seems to have worked, as Instagram has yet to take a single action against her.

Sign the petition below to demand the social media service ban this account and all cruel opportunists who hurt innocent animals to get attention.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Mosser,

Instagram has a stain on its reputation for seemingly taking a soft approach to videos and pictures that perpetuate animal cruelty. Your inaction regarding controversial influencer Lovely Peaches reinforces the notoriety. This woman is facing animal cruelty charges for allegedly abusing and threatening her pet dog, to the horror of thousands of watchers, on your platform. She reportedly informed police that she perpetrated these acts to “get followers.”

Over two months after her arrest, she is still posting videos on Instagram. Inaction is endorsement. Do not let Instagram become the place where abusers and cruel attention-seekers go to make their names. Ban Lovely Peaches and take a decisive stand against all acts of animal cruelty promoted on your platform.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Charge her, take her pet away and never allow her to have another one. Cancel her account!!

  2. If this account, and any other site glorifying, supporting and encouraging animal abuse, torture and murder is allowed to continue to post their vile pictures by your company, you are as guilty as the criminals you support.

  3. What a disgusting person to do this to her dog. I’m glad the dog has been taken away from her, but too many stupid people think things like this are OK. “Lovely Peaches” is a sociopath and anything and everything she posts should be taken down. What the hell is wrong with these people? “Influencer” my foot, she’s nuts!

  4. Adam Mosser, if you condone this type of behavior on Instagram, you deserve to lose your job and I’m sure there’s a lot of people who agree! You should see to it that people do not post such evil behavior!

  5. This monster should not be given a platform from which to influence anyone! A person who would inflict cruelty on an animal is debased, but to do so on the pet that depends on her for its existence indicates far deeper cruelty in the nature of child abuse.

    If Instagram tolerates this behavior, it endorses this behavior.

    She did it for ATTENTION! My God what the hell is this world coming to! An abhorrent, backward degenerate who must be stopped! Of course Instagram must remove this account and that of all others who promote such cruelty! The people at Instagram are totally complicit if they don’t do anything to stop this! How could any decent human being find this funny or clever or even acceptable behaviour! The only attention she should be getting is to be locked up! Sick depraved world we live in and it’s about time the authorities did something to change things! Prosecute them all to the fullness of the law! Change the laws so that Instragram can be prosecuted! She must NEVER be allowed to do this EVER again! You MUST protect society from her and others like her! They’re all clearly selfish, heartless, sadistic human beings who couldn’t care less about the suffering of any other living creature! Poor, poor defenceless animals! Breaks my heart! I despair of the human race!

  7. All of these social media platforms should be legally required to report any animal or child abuse (or even the threat of such) then ban the user permanently.
    This sociopathic scumbag needs to be charged with multiple felony animal abuse charges and banned from ever owning or even being around animals!

SHE NEEDS HELP BADLY,…OR A JAIL CELL BUT SO UNFORTUNATELY,..THEY WILL DO NOTHING,..INSTAGRAM,..THE POLICE,..THE PROSECUTERS WILL DO……..NOTHING AS USUAL

  9. This vile, mentally deranged bitch musty be exterminated. A slow and agonising death is essential. I am ready, willing and able to help perform this procedure!

  10. This vile, mentally deranged bitch must be exterminated. A slow and agonising death is essential for this evil cretin. I am ready, willing and able to help perform this procedure!

  11. Please remove this person from your site. She is obviously mentally challenged to think she needs to abuse an animal to get more attention. That’s very sick.

  12. Jaime Perez says:

    This disgusting pathetic creep needs some serious help! What a witch. I’m glad the dog was taken away from her.

  13. Stephanie Geyser says:

    Instagram should vet posts BEFORE they can become available for the public/viewers. It’s no good to allow anything to go out on their platform, and wait for complaints to flood in – because the damage has already been done. And does Instagram really want to be associated with these pathetic bits of human trash on their accounts? Or are they THAT desperate for the money?

  14. Thank God the Dog Max was removed — clearly, Brittany Johnson is not playing with a full deck — something is WRONG with her — if she wants attention, get it any way she wishes — as long as Animals are out of the picture — Brittany Johnson is a DANGER to Animals — if she refuses to change, throw the PSYCHO into a rubber room.

    These stupid social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, TIK-tok, Etc… all of these have to be held accountable for allowing these evil predators to post such things like animal abuse and they need to be investigated and held accountable for allowing this! because it’s like when they allow this to happen on their social media platforms, they are like accomplices! so this needs to stop, now!! I’m glad the dog was taken away from that pos!

  16. Lisa Puchta says:

    What a nut she is, abusing a poor dog for attention, she needs to be thrown in jail, and the key thrown out, what a LOSER
