This is important because Kelly is in a position where her word can influence millions of viewers and give them the wrong impression of the breed. Statements about pitbulls being dangerous animals are not the truth, and she should be held accountable for stating this on a national platform. Please sign and share this petition and hopefully we can get the chance to educate Kelly and help put an end to breed discrimination. 


"But the gangster’s dog is uh, I mean if it’s a gangster it would have to be a dangerous, uh, pitbull kind of dog, right?”

Kelly Ripa's statement above.

      I own a rescued pitbull puppy who was saved from a pibull fighting operation..my sister got his older sister and his mom who were both horribly abused, including making them to fight, filing their teeth down, starving them and one was used as a bait dog for all the other fighting dogs to practice on... fortunately my puppy was rescued before most of the abuse but he did go through a sort of hell too...But all 3 of these dogs are so loving, sweet and do not hold all humans accountable for the torture that they had all had been dragged through...These dogs are such good animals, its really amazing...some of them can even bounce back rom horrid abuse and be amazing dogs that will never bite anybody...but when a pitbull treated right from birth will never bite anybody and will be the best dog you ever have. This racisim against pitbulls has to STOP.....PLEASE

      I have 3 beautiful pitbulls they are my everything. I get so disgusted when i see these kids breeding them and not being responsible at all for thier actions and they take the pitbull to a whole different level. But i am willing to do anything to protect my 3 beautiful babies of mine.From ignorant people.

      I have met Kelly. She and her family are just unbelievably nice people. I have witnessed how influential her opinions can be on her audience. If she says something, they think it. It's actually kind of scary. She's a regular at my restaurant here in NYC and whenever she mentions us on air we get an influx of people from the midwest coming in looking for her. I think she's really successful because she is so good at what she does but that a petition like this should do the trick in perhaps making her realize that she's got a lot of responsibility, maybe more than she thought, to be careful about what she advocates. In this case she is perpetuating an idea that can effectively put people in harm's way because the fear will urge people to vote for ill-conceived breed-specific legislation that does more to create problems than solve them.
