Despite the controversy of horses being painted pink for Selena Gomez’s music video for “Love You Like a Song,” it seems the controversial animals will not be featured when the video makes its debut.

Both singer Pink and animal rights group PETA were vocal about their disapproval surrounding the painted horses, but it seems that PETA has changed their tune now that the horses are ultimately being left out.

Celebuzz received an exclusive statement regarding the decision to cut the horses from the video from PETA, and the group had this to say:

PETA is delighted to hear that Selena Gomez has decided to cut the scenes of pink painted horses from her next video. Because paint can cause painful allergic reactions to chemicals and there’s no way to know how an individual animal will react, this is decidedly the right move. She’s a kind person and we’re sure she never intended any harm, but this latest move is appreciated especially since she is a trend setter among young people.

Glad to see everyone is able to get along!
