‘Dog Stunt Double’ Outrages Fans of Britain’s Got Talent

Simon Cowell has a lot of explaining to do as fans are angry that the winner of Britain’s Got Talent used a stunt double dog in the finale.

According to the Guardian, the producers of the show have apologized for “not making it clearer to viewers” that a stunt double dog was used. ITV however has refused to apologize saying: “To be absolutely clear these things are a judgment call that producers make.”

I am so disappointed.
