Chris Brown landed in boiling waters after buying his daughter Royalty a baby marmoset. On December 6, he shared on Instagram a video of his little girl cradling the small animal.
A lot of his fans considered this cute, but most of them blasted him for taking away the baby monkey from its mother.
One of his Instagram fans stated that ‘You have no heart (or brain) to do something so cruel to an animal!’ The commenter went, ‘They belong in the wild!’ before urging the singer to ‘rescue her a puppy because she will be just as happy!’
‘What an idiot!’ another fan expressed his frustrations. ‘This is animal abuse! Don’t you know that monkeys can get very aggressive when they are kept too long in captivity? What an excellent gift for a child this is…’ Another one of his fans agreed, writing, ‘You’re an idiot dude! Cruel, cruel, cruel!’
‘You so stupid! They belong in the wild not in a house with celebs who think its funny to have a monkey! [Buy] her a puppy men!’ another commenter posted.
‘So sad this baby monkey should be with its mother,’ another said.
There were also users who pointed out that the moneky is a wild animal and buying or selling it is illegal.
‘Why? Why take a baby monkey away from its mother? This is a wild animal! And why giving the wrong example to your followers/fans? Just one question-why? You must have known better! This breaks my heart!’
Other fans defended him saying that he didn’t commit an act of abuse because no one is hitting or abusing the little monkey. Chris’ reps still have to address the situation. What do you think about this? Is it ok that he got his baby girl a monkey as a pet?
