If you’re Bieber AF, you’ll know all too well that back in 2013, Justin adopted an abandoned monkey named Mally. Cute, right?
In a recent interview with GQ, JB confessed that it was a shame he had to let go of the pet, but if the opportunity ever arises then he will totally get another one, saying “people are always like, ‘Why did you get a monkey?’ If you could get a monkey, well, you would get a f**king monkey, too! Monkeys are awesome.”
However, a spokesperson for the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance has issued a public statement addressed to Justin, warning him against adopting another monkey:
“[It] will prove dangerous to both you and your monkey, as well as irresponsible when it comes to public following. Please do not repeat this foolish endeavour.” The organization also explained that it’s “simply not possible to fulfil the unique needs of your monkey within a private home.”
Yikes! We’re sure Justin means no harm, but you all saw season one of ‘Friends’, right? Learn from Ross and Marcel, Biebs.
