“WE HAVE TOO MUCH FOR ME”
Giving a statement to members of the press regarding the whistleblowing, Yıldız Tilbe said, “I think human life is also important. God first created man and created everything for man. When I see the torn children, there are about 300 of them. We have no face, we have no eyes, no arms or legs… Because I was very impressed, I did a few sentences about aggressive dogs. As I am a Muslim, we said to ourselves: “People die, animals die, you die.” This word has come a long way for me. At that time, I should be asleep, but the children should be able to walk the streets more comfortably, the elderly should go to the mosque in the morning, The villagers are torn on the way to their fields, let them go in peace. Let the children play in the parks, let the elderly walk comfortably. If other dogs are also rehabilitated, if not, there are dogs walking blind. minister, the one who brings the newspapers… Let him be trained, let him be useful to the people. We all agree on that, but dogs that shred “You have to put them down because they’re savages. That’s why I think children and people have priority in life.” he said.
“I HAVE COME TO FIND MY LEGAL RIGHTS”
Tilbe then continued his remarks as follows:
I ate a lot of insults, I ate curses that I never heard in my life. Neither my mother, nor my father, nor my body, nor my personality, nor my art, they left nothing. That’s why it was too much for me, in fact I was going to pull off this event, but why should I be insulted so much? To defend humanity? Is it because I said “Don’t let dogs tear children and old people apart”? Let the dogs be cared for, not feral, not attacked, I say this. Otherwise, every living thing has the right to life, but no living thing that harms people has the right to life. He becomes a Scorpion, a snake, a bear descending from the mountain, a pig. Either way, the priority should be people. I think human life is sacred. Animals should also be merciful, shame on them too. Why should they tear people apart, why should they be killed? Let them be educated, domesticated, cared for. I think so. I had no other intention. I didn’t deserve it at all, they call me a “murderer”. I cried a lot, I cried for days, and finally I decided to claim my rights legally because these people try to question me as much as possible because I said that the wild animals must be eliminated. Those who do that are also lawyers, it’s a shame. It could also tear your child, the dog, our aunt, our mother, our parent apart. It shouldn’t have been like this. As sensible people living in this country, we need to join hands and find a solution to this.
“THE DROP SUBJECT”
Tilbe’s lawyer, Handan Bakbak, meanwhile, said protecting children is always a priority and said the starting point for the famous singer’s reaction was children, but the topic was diverted. Bakbak also said that Yıldız Tilbe had four cats in her home and said that she suffered social lynching.
