|I had no idea who this woman was until I read the article on dogster magazine. Well, I still don't, I've never seen any of her movies.
The news articles they linked to said she has or is suspected to have Schizophrenia. She did not deliberately douse her dog with gasoline, it was accidental, but her actions from that night prove that she isn't capable of caring for her dog, or herself for that matter. Fortunately her parents were able to have her committed to a psychiatric hospital and she will receive the care she needs.
Her dog was not hurt and is now safe with her parents, hopefully they keep it and not return it to her when she's released from the hospital.
If she did douse her dog with gasoline with intent to set it on fire, then I would be outraged right along with you, but that's not the case here. People with mental illnesses do not think rationally, they don't think about what they're doing and how it might harm themselves and those around them.
I'm not a fan of hers, I'm not going to defend her actions, and what she did was wrong, but I'm not going to call her the worst person on the planet, either.
