A shocking animal abuse scenario saw an Instagram user posting a video of her dog in a washing machine, all in an apparent bid to gain more followers. The Instagram user has been labelled ‘evil’ after posting the video.
The disturbing video had been posted by Tamara Rotman, a popular social media star from Argentina.
The video footage which had been posted online saw her dog Coco inside the washing machine, with her face pushed up against the door.
The West Highland White Terrier, who seemed traumatised at being trapped inside the washing machine struggles to get out.
Rotman added a survey with the question "are you going to be really traumatised?" next to the video.
Instagram users were quick to condemn the woman’s ‘stupidity’ with many calling her out for animal abuse.
Having come under fire for her outrageous video, Rotamn had to delete her account.
However, only hours later, she deleted all her posts and reactivated her account, adding a single video of a happy-looking Coco playing on a green lawn.
She also posted a lengthy justification about her actions, claiming she had been "misinterpreted” adding that the pooch was only in the washing machine for a few seconds, which she insisted had not been switched on at any point.
