Go Daddy is known for their controversial commercials, but many are saying that this particular one went too far.

The ad features a puppy get thrown out of a pickup truck, and then struggle to get home. When it finally does make it home to it’s family, something happens that is so cruel that 42,000 people signed a petition against it on the grounds of animal cruelty. The backlash was so great that Go Daddy decided not to air the commercial at all.

“What should have been a fun and funny ad clearly missed the mark and we will not air it,” CEO Blake Irving wrote.
