Jane Goodall Goes Ape Over New Ads!
Jane Goodall is not having it!
Last week the American Association for the Advancement of Science was reprimanded by some of the world’s top conservation biologists, including famed primatologist Jane Goodall, for depicting chimpanzees as “frivolous subhumans.”
The crime: an advertisement released by the AAAS showing chimps dressed in hats reading the association’s journal.
Wanna see for yourself? Too bad! The images were pulled shortly after complaints started rolling in. And also, in an attempt to not suck so hard, the organization has given Jane Goodall and six of her colleagues space in the journal this week to make the case that chimpanzees SHOULD NOT be dressed up as humans, or used frivolously in entertainment and advertisements.
Repeat after me: WE LOVE YOU JANE!!!
