Harry Potter star Emma Watson has taken to Twitter to respond to criticism after she was photographed walking a dog with dyed bright pink fur.
The British actress came under fire from pet lovers who accused her of animal cruelty when she stepped out in London with the bubblegum-coloured canine last Friday.
However, Watson insists the dye job was not her doing, pointing out the pup actually belongs to a pal who is raising money for charity.
"PinkDarcyDog is pink because her owner is raising money for breast cancer. I wish Darcy was my dog but she isn't. Was just walking her... Just to clarify one more time that I don't have a dog. Fact checking takes five minutes," Watson tweeted.
