Ever since Mohamed Jbali got his first pet, a pooch named Bowie, he just can’t catch a break from controversies. The former 90 Day Fiance celeb continues to face allegations, mainly scrutinizing the way he treats the adorable pup.
But now, the reality star is addressing the issue for the first time, seemingly defending his actions with his Akita.
In a lengthy Instagram video, Mohamed reiterates that Bowie is a well-cared dog, contrary to what others think. Although he’s a first-time dog owner, Danielle Jbali’s ex-husband claims he continues to research about this type of dog and is applying what he learned from fellow Akita owners.
Mohamed Says He’s Not Being Mean To Bowie
Previously, Mohamed Jbali was labeled a “mean” dog owner after he uploaded a video of himself seemingly shouting at Bowie. The 90 Day Fiance dude quickly defends his actions, claiming it’s part of his training. He should be accustomed to dealing with frequent critics by now.
In the clip, the Tunisia native shows off a hairbrush with Bowie’s fur stuck on it. Bowie, being the playful dog that he is, tries to reach and nibble it.
That was when Mohamed instructed him to go away in a loud tone that some labeled as scolding. Apparently, this did not sit well with some of his followers.
