Dennis Quaid: Dog Abuse Controversy Around 'A Dog's Purpose' Is 'Fake News'

In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night, Dennis Quaid tried to paint the controversy around 'A Dog's Purpose' as "fake news."

Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment cancelled a premiere and a press junket for the film last week amid controversy over a video that showed the mistreatment of a dog during filming.

However, to Quaid it was nothing more than a bit of clever editing to create fake news.

"Somebody shot video and then took the video and edited other pieces to it," he said. "To make it look like a dog was abused."

Asked why someone would do that, Quaid replied: "Well, he held on to it for 15 months until a week before the movie's coming out, then makes a storm about how the dog was abused."

"If the dog was abused why didn't you raise something at the time?"

"I don't know, maybe it was a guy that was at the inauguration," he went on to joke. "We've got to get our fake news stories straight."

When Kimmel tried to recap, Quaid reiterated it was "just fake news."
