Why was Alex Cooper accused of bestiality? 'Call Her Daddy' host slams trolls
'Call Her Daddy' host Alex Cooper was recently accused of bestiality following a video that she posted on Instagram. The 26-year-old denied the accusations after her video went viral on the Internet.
Cooper, who hosts the advice and comedy podcast 'Call Her Daddy' originally posted the video on November 6, 2020. In the eight-second clip, Cooper can be seen sitting on her sofa when her pet dog Henry starts licking her neck and face. Cooper responds back by licking the dog's tongue for a moment. This footage sparked outrage as many Internet users labeled it an act of bestiality. Bestiality is defined as sexual relations between a human and an animal. There are laws forbidding the sexual assault of animals in 46 of the 50 states, though the act can still be prosecuted in those remaining four states if the animal suffers physical harm, according to the American Legal Defense Fund.

On Wednesday, June 30, in her segment of "Call Her Daddy," which aired on Spotify, Cooper categorically denied the accusations. "I feel there is nothing wrong with what I chose to let that dog do to my mouth," she said. "It's not bestiality, and I'm going to continue to post videos of Henry." Cooper alleged that whosoever is "triggered" by the clip and thinks what she did was bestiality must have had a traumatic experience in their childhood. She also expressed disappointment at how the clip was able to spread around the internet.
Cooper stated that she removed the video from her Instagram story after only a minute, but it started doing rounds online after someone screen-recorded the clip and shared it on Twitter. Cooper said she had removed the video because she was concerned about her boyfriend's privacy, as Henry is his dog. "I didn't want anyone to know about Henry, because I knew … there were stalkers out there who would be able to find my boyfriend if they found the dog," she said. It was first reported in June 2020 that Cooper has signed an exclusive $60 million deal with Spotify for her show 'Call Her Daddy'.
The influencer started her podcast in 2018 with her friend Sofia Franklyn, who quit the show in 2020 after a conflict between the two over a potential deal with Barstool Sports, which previously hosted the podcast.
