Teen Mom Farrah Abraham accused of animal abuse by fans after allowing children to rent out & PAINT on her horse | The Sun

TEEN Mom Farrah Abraham has been accused of animal abuse by fans after allowing children to rent out and paint on her horse.

The ex MTV star was accused of animal cruelty in the past when she posted a video of her dog with a ribbon tied around its mouth.

Farrah, 31, shared a photo of the painted horse, Starburst, on her pet dedicated Instagram account.

The photo shows a bridled Starburst whose mane has been caked with paint and whose body has been effectively colored on by children.

The horse's side appears similar to a badly behaved child's walls as it's covered with multi-colored drawings and started but forgotten scribbles.

Farrah captioned the post: "Starburst hosted her first birthday party! We’re so proud of this birthday wish come true!"

The Teen Mom OG alum's followers took exception to the farm animal's treatment in the post's comment section.

One person wrote: "Whoa! Whoa, this is NOT ok."

A second person commented: "I think writing on an animal equals…ANIMAL CRUELTY… this is beyond disrespectful."

A third critic added: "This is awful. This is NOT cute, that poor horse."

While a fourth commenter asked that something be done about the situation, writing: "Please report this animal abuser to the proper authorities!"


Teen Mom fans on Reddit voiced their disapproval of Farrah's animal conduct as well.

A user reposted Starburst's photo and captioned it: "Farrah only knows exploitation. She’s proud of renting out her horse to parties to let kids paint her."

Critics rushed to the comment thread to give their take on what many considered abuse.

One stated: "The way she treats living things is abhorrent, her own child being example number one."

Another person added: "How you treat animals reveals so much about your character."

One person referenced the Starburst's demeanor, writing "That horse looks so sad"


The TV personality was once accused of "animal cruelty" after posting a photo of her puppy with a muzzle on.

Farrah took to her Instagram Stories to share the picture of her dog, but she has received nothing but backlash following the post.

One wrote at the time: "What is her reasoning? This just looks so sad."

Another comment added: "Muzzle training is a legitimate thing but I would 99.99% guarantee Farrah has no idea how to do it or even why."

"This makes me so angry I can actually scream!" another chimed in.


Farrah was previously forced to respond to claims of animal abuse after posting a video of the dogs, Boo and Cupcake, showing one of them walking around with a ribbon tied around her mouth.

While Pomeranian Boo's fur was dyed blue, Cupcake's own wad a bright shade of pink.

One follower wrote: “This is animal cruelty. You shouldn’t be allowed to own pets.

“Makes me so upset to see this kind of treatment of dogs.”

A second reacted: “Tying a dog’s mouth shut after dying it for Instagram. Please save these animals.”

Followers tagged animal rights organizations PETA and ASPCA.

PETA Senior Director of Cruelty Casework Stephanie Bell exclusively told The Sun in a statement: "Subjecting dogs to the stress of being dyed—which is also potentially toxic—and restricting their opportunities to eat, drink, and even breathe by tying a ribbon around their mouth are cruel acts that can have fatal consequences, and they show a profound lack of empathy.

"PETA urges Farrah Abraham to start treating dogs like more than fashion accessories or surrender them to someone who will love them unconditionally."

But Farrah fired back, claiming she was following "guidelines of the law."

She exclusively told The Sun: "Haters made up a ‘ribbon’ is on my pets, which is false. We use a muzzle per a trainer’s review for her training, which are sold at all pet stores."

She continued that her family had been receiving "death threats" over the video, and that the "harassment" is "unnecessary and awful."

Farrah added: "Sophia treats [the dogs] as sister and brother… like royalty. We do have emotional support animals and they must be trained to the guidelines of the law."
