Last week a video surfaced that had people outraged and threatening to boycott the movie "A Dog's Purpose." The producer of the movie is finally speaking out about the alleged dog abuse on set. Here's what he had to say...

While the producer says he too was outraged when he saw the video, he is quoted as saying PETA is overreacting and it wasn't as bad as TMZ made it seem (because apparently video proof is not enough...).

"I have participated in, helped pay for and written in this publication about animal welfare causes. My will is set up so that all I have shall be donated to charities benefiting animals when I die." - Gavin Polone, producer.

"As with the TMZ video that you saw, two things were evident: 1) the dog handler tries to force the dog, for 35 to 40 seconds, into the water when, clearly, he didn’t want to go in; and 2) in a separate take filmed sometime later, the dog did go into the water, on his own, and, at the end, his head is submerged for about 4 seconds. These two things are absolutely INEXCUSABLE and should NEVER have happened." - Hollywood Reporter
