Usually, dog videos leave netizens in awe but this time a star dog faced the heat of internet users after he was accused of pooping on the train. Boji, a canine of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, has won many hearts ever since he was spotted travelling on public transport. Social media has also contributed a lot to his fame, as he has dedicated Twitter and Instagram accounts. On November 19, Boji was accused of leaving faeces on a train seat and he faced the wrath of social media users. Sharing an image of poop lying on the train seat, a Twitter user wrote, “The Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality’s staff dog has dirtied the streetcar." The accusation did not go down well among users on the microblogging site.

Many said that “the dog has crossed the line" but there were a few who stood by the dog and could not believe the accusations. “Anyone who spends 2 hours with a dog knows that the animal will not defecate there,” wrote one of the users.

When the news spread on social media, Boji’s instructor, Ali Yeşilırmak, took to Twitter and denied the allegations. On behalf of the canine, Ali revealed that the dog was at the training centre all day. “I did not even step out of the centre to travel in Istanbul.
