Nazi dog video man charged
A POPULAR YouTuber faces court for teaching his pet pug dog to give NAZI salutes.
Mark Meechan, 29, recorded his girlfriend’s mutt Buddha saluting to statements such as “gas the Jews” and “Sieg Heil” and uploaded the video to YouTube.
The clip has been viewed around 3 million times and complaints from outraged viewers led to police being called in.
Meechan, from Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, was charged with committing a hate crime and posting a grossly offensive video and will face court later this year.
He has apologised for any offence caused and said: “I am not a racist at all, anybody who knows me could tell you that.
“Everyone’s going to actually think that I hate Jews now, and I don’t at all. I don’t hate anyone, the whole purpose was to annoy my girlfriend.”
