Lady Gaga’s fans are furious with the ‘Paparazzi’ singer after her former dog walker Ryan Fischer claimed he has been “abandoned and unsupported” since being shot while protecting the singer’s pooches. Lady Gaga offered $500,000 to find her missing dogs but is allowing him to set up a GoFundme because he’s now homeless and still struggling with his trauma. “I don’t expect much from rich people but they never fail to amaze me,” one Twitter user pointed out. Another chimed in: “What is wrong what this woman, after having her dogs saved? She should be here for him!”
The same fan later added, “It should be noted his bills were 100k and she apparently had 500k to burn on a reward for the dogs’ safe return. soooo.” A fourth fan wrote on Fischer’s GoFundMe page: “WTF Lady Gaga?! This is unreal that the person who was shot trying to save your dogs from being stolen is struggling like this! I’m a fan but this is gross to me. How could you be so insensitive to [sic]the PTSD that he must have from this incident?” In February, at her request of $500K-worth of ransom money for their release (she also said), we learned about Koji and Gustav– her two French bulldogs. The pop star has not responded to the backlash on social media. A rep for Gaga did not immediately return our request for comment, but she is actively seeking out the people who attacked and injured Fischer in order to protect them too. The former dog walker noted that in order to mend his emotional and mental health, he is seeking finances from generous loved ones.
“With no vehicle, apartment,” the man wrote on his GoFundMe page here, “and having run out of savings and surviving on donations from generous loved ones.”
