A Brazilian teenager is under fire after placing her pet in a microwave and recording her apparently cooking it online.
The 16-year-old girl who has been identified as Victoria Muller has received severe backlash after uploading a clip of her microwaving a guinea pig. As a result of her malicious act, an online hate campaign has sparked as images of animals being tortured inside machines are being shared across the internet.
After the abuse that came her way, the girl deleted her social media accounts.
Victoria’s father took her to the authorities after finding out what she did, where she was obligated to explain the reasoning behind her abusive act and was forced to apologized for her “shameful” behavior.
According to her father, he has stated that he has punished his daughter, stating “[m]y daughter was already punished for her bad behavior “The animal is fine and in the name of all my family we apologize,” Mr. Muller explained. “We all take care of animals in this house, and we would never let something like this happen. We apologize again for all that happened.”
The teenager has been heavily criticized for her cruel act against her animal. Thankfully, the animal escaped unscathed. However, many individuals found her repercussions were not sufficient. “I’m sorry, but an apology for a 16-year-old microwaving a live guinea pig is not enough,” one Twitter user tweeted out.
