It is with sadness and regret that I must once again point out that Pet Pardons has incited hatred and death threats, this time against Iranian Canadian actress and Miss Universe Canada 2012, Sahar Biniaz (right).
Ms. Biniaz, who was attacked by a pit bull when she was 14, has apparently called for more strict regulations on pit bulls in British Columbia:
Miss Universe Canada has joined the fight for a pit bull ban in B.C., and plans to make the effort a major part of her reign.
Sahar Biniaz, 26, was crowned Miss Universe Canada on May 19, and thinks the provincial government should adopt either a pit bull ban or at least require that pit bulls must be leashed and muzzled at all times.
The Richmond resident was a victim of a pit bull attack herself at the age of 14, a year after her family adopted a five-month-old pit bull from a breeder.
The pit bull “came from a really nice environment,” she said, but “then I ended up getting 16 stitches.” Biniaz still bears the scars on her chest to this day.
“I was just sitting down and it just kept staring at me, and I don’t know what aggravated it,” she said. “It just all of sudden … went off.”
In a post on September 5, Pet Pardons called for Miss Universe Canada to rescind its award. Once again, however, many of those who commented went further.
Many called for her to be “banned,” “leashed” and “muzzled” as well, and most called her an “ugly” “bitch,” “whore,” “skank,” “douche bag,” or some combination of these insults. Some posted hateful comments about Canada (“F*CK CANADA”) and Islam (“F*CK ISLAM”), or told her to go back to India or Iran. Eva Betances expressed a desire to kill her in a “gass chamber” if she continues to express her opinion.
Here is a representative sample of the comments:
By my count, in just the last month, Pet Pardons has incited hatred and death threats against Fairfield County officials Mike Miller, Mike Kiger and Judy Shupe (based on a confirmed hoax), against Idaho hunter Dennis Brent Sawyer (based on a picture), and now Ms. Biniaz.
Again, this comes as no surprise, as Jeromie Williams, the Director of Operations for Pet Pardons Canada, and Managing Editor of Pet Pardons News, has a well-documented history of stalking, harassment and death threats against women, children and their pet dogs, for which he is currently under investigation by American and Canadian police.
